    So me and the Creole clan went out of town this weekend to the city we used to live in. I had to cover a college football game, they hung out with friends. So Sunday morning comes, and we have a couple of hours to kill before we see more people. We take the kids to the zoo, but have to leave our Miniature Schnauzer somewhere.

    We decide to drop her in the backyard of a friend's house. No biggie, we thought. We locked the gates and headed out.

    Well, after leaving the zoo, we call our friend to ask how the dog is. She says there's no dog over there. Queencreole made the mistake of saying, "She's not there??" Princesscreole starts crying immediately.

    We start walking the neighborhood, and some kids asked us if we were looking for a dog. They described Poochcreole perfectly, and one little girl even rattled off our phone number. They pointed us in the direction of where our dog was, and about 10 minutes later, we ran into a lady who was walking our dog. She had already called our home twice to say she had found our pooch, which had escaped under a little opening under the fence.

    It just goes to show there are good people left. Kids and adults. They made an 8-year-old girl's day, and saved her daddy from spending a day roaming the streets.

    That's a nice story. I'm glad you got back your dog.

    Yeah, especially considering that you can't really replace pets. This pooch - while a pain in the ass - is one of us. Plus, pure breds are pretty dang expensive. Our pooch was a birthday present for Princesscreole, and my brother in law said the dog was like $300.

    Glad they took good care of your dog, king.

    So in the future, you know now to get the pooch a press pass and bring him to games, right?

    Nice story. Of course, FD took a steaming pile of shit on it, but a nice feel-good story nonetheless.

    Honestly, I think we get so wrapped up in the negative that we fail to realize that good things like this happen a lot more than we think.

    fever_dog's definition of a responsible pet owner: one who never leaves his pet's side.

    have you ever gone away and not taken the dog? i guess you're a crummy, irresponsible pet owner then aren't you?

    well, i would say that dumping a dog off in an unsupervised, uninspected yard with nobody home isn't exactly in a pet's best interest.

    don't want the responsibility of taking care of a dog 24/7? don't get one.

    dog not fitting into the travel plans? drop him off at a quality boarding kennel (every responsible dog owner knows a good one) or have someone dog-sit.

    that ain't too much to ask, is it?
    hell, it's just an animal's life.
