What an adventurous evening! Glad he was found and is ok.

He was freaked out when 'Bent found him. When he was rescued up north, he had been left on his own in the woods for so long that he'd nearly starved to death. He sure didn't want to return to that life!

Glad he survived the ordeal! Oh, and I guess it's okay that the dog is fine, too.

Your boy is a survivor, wouldn't surprise me if he could find his way home. Glad he is ok! Not the kind of adventure you want...

Glad he is Ok. Now AD's next task is to teach Bent to navigate. ;-)

When we first got him he had a tendancy to bolt for home near the end of a hike. Seems that's the default if he panics. Sure scared the cr@p out of me.

At least he's smart enough to gallop along the sidewalk over the bridge, then take the underpass below the highway rather than try and cross the road. He's scared of cars, luckily.

Glad to hear you found your boy unscathed. I hate that feeling of losing an animal. Like losing your wallet x100.

Well Adventure is in his name. I'm glad it worked out. It sounds like he would have made it home on his own, though not without significant stress.

AD was wondering why 'Bent was taking so long to catch up

happy ending - good to hear!

I'm going to look into some sort of chest strap for the lad so he can't do the houndini collar escape on our 200m sidewalk stretch. Otherwise his collar will have to be choking-tight.

Maybe a martingale collar?
Nov 27, 2015 3:11 PM # 
That looks do-able, even with his existing collar. I could hook a 'biner through the webbing loop. Thanks!

Ugh, I can imagine the panic for quite sometime. So glad he is a smart pooch

What a clever dog, and you guys for narrowing in on him so well. Glad it all worked out. Can't wait for the movie.

The Adventures of AdventureDog!

He made it easy for us by making a beeline for home. He's just very lucky that the coyotes didn't notice him - yikes.
