Harold is back home!



Our stray beagle, Harold, has been reclaimed by his owners - wonderful news, because hubby really meant it when he said we couldn't keep him. (Contrary to what my nephew thinks, once in awhile my husband does say "no" to me.) Turns out that Harold (whose actually name is "Baby") had taken a 12 day vacation from home and wandered really far! The fire station where we found him was 12 miles away from his home. The owners answered our ad in the paper. Anyway, I thought I'd post a few photos that I took of his last day with us. Below - he was wandering around our property tracking something and paying no attention to the geese on the dock.

I'm glad Harold/Baby was able to be reclaimed by his family. Twelve miles?!?! He really followed his nose on quite the adventure! (I've heard beagles will do that) Thankfully he found his way to you and you helped him get home- WELL DONE!!
