Yesterday on our block was a small dog just wandering around and oblivious to the passing cars (not many but a few).
My son called me out to tell me and I looked out and didn’t see him. A passing lady asked if the dog on the corner was our dog. So we went out and saw the dog about a block away.
I brought the dog some water because it was pretty hot yesterday, and he lapped it up. He had a collar with a tag and phone number. My son called and left a message. Finally a couple came by and saw the pup and recognized him and called him by name. They were the neighbors. Pup was on his block.
My question after a long preview was would he have been able to get home on his own? Or would it depend on if he had a lot of experience walking around the neighborhood?
He sort of looked like Benji from the old movies. He did seem grateful for the water and gave my ankle an appreciative lick.
