PERCY: Well, we weren't going to post today but the dogs had an adventure this morning and want to share it.
MICAH: Yeah, if Jan hadn't snapped a couple of fast photos, we would think they imagined the whole thing.
RUSTY: Buddy, Merci and Sam set off on a late morning walk with Jan. We were all waiting for them to get home so we could eat.
CYNDI: We'll let them tell it since we were in the kitchen waiting for our breakfast and missed the entire episode.
MERCI: From a distance, we recognized Stanley's bike with the cart where Moses rides. Stanley had an extra dog racing around. He got off his bike and put a leash on it.
SAM: As we approached on the other side of the street, we all started barking. They had to yell at each other to be heard but Jan thanked him for restraining the dog. He said the dog appeared out of nowhere and was following them, so he'd take it downtown with him and call Animal Control.

BUDDY: The dog - a pup actually - was trying to get loose to come meet us. It would be a long, hard trip downtown with the pup, so Jan offered to let Stanley put the pup in our yard and after we walked her, she would call AC for him. We came back and Jan unlocked the gate.
MERCI: Before he resumed his trip to town, we got to meet Stanley in the flesh. Moses, a little white dog, is our Humane Society's mascot.

SAM: And then we set off again on our walk. We got as far as next door and Jan realized there were now four of us. Yep, the pup was loose. He was a nice, friendly pup and we tried to chase him off but he followed us back home. Jan brought us inside. The pup wouldn't come in so she could call AC to pick him up.
BUDDY: She put us in the back yard. Fortunately, she checked first because the gate was wide open. The latch must not have caught properly. She went back to the front door and invited the pup inside. Not even treats could entice him! She grabbed a leash from a door and when she reached the porch, the pup was already up the street and disappearing from sight.
MERCI: We're sorry, Stanley. but we want to let you know not to be surprised if the pup appears out of nowhere again.
