Or, from the dog's perspective,

In fairness, that dog looked like maybe a greyhound-Dalmation mix?  So probably was already pretty skinny.

Dogs aren't dumb. They don't go out to go potty, run away and fall into a cave.

Recently a neighbor's dog disappeared. There is another neighbor who hated that dog, and said so. Nothing can be proved and nothing will happen.

I did have a cat run away, about 40 years ago, when my downstairs neighbor decided he would build kennels and try to raise pit bulls or something stupid like that. She saw what was happening and just disappeared. I was walking around the neighborhood a year later, and there she was at a house where there were a lot of other cats. We made eye contact.

You aren't wrong... but people sometimes fall down caves and die.  Not too surprising that a dog fell down a cave and almost died.

My family had a dog that we would regularly get calls from people who lived ten streets away (long suburban blocks) saying they found her.  I have no idea how she manages to stay with us for 14 years.

As a dog person who fosters abandoned puppies, the pictures of that poor dog were just tearing me apart.

I've had some pretty badly injured puppies pass through my care but I've never had one as emaciated as that dog.

Here's some eye bleach for everyone, our latest foster Chica.  She was adopted Monday, we're taking a little time off before the next houseguest.

I once found a rattlesnake. I was rappelling down a short, craggy cliff face and during one hop I saw a rattlesnake on a ledge, and he saw me! So I just loosed my grip on my rope a bit and dropped down another 10 feet or so. That was a thrilling moment.

By sticking to the dirty underwear.

How many bottles of lotion were down there?

Thanks for what you do.

My previous dog (Blue) was a rescue who was saved from the needle thanks to her foster parents -- living on for another dozen happy years after getting sprung from the pound back in '93.

Dammit I thought I was finally rid of that dog!

I am an absolute sucker for The Dodo videos, going from one to another for up to an hour or so on YouTube. I'm pretty certain I got body switched with a soccer mom a few years ago but I can't prove it.

Someone:
"Aww, poor dog. Can't imagine what I'd do if that happened to my doggos."
Amazon:
"You seem emotional..."

Lassie couldn't get her message across, so finally had to go down the mine shaft. Still no sign of Timmy.

My dogs will walk directly through an electric fence set on death star without stopping. One will also fall off the couch, or down the stairs or whatever because he is never focusing on what he is doing.

I love dogs, they are incredibly socially intelligent. However dogs are dumber than a bag of hammers.

Many, many years ago, when I was young, my father got us a puppy. A beagle. One day he disappeared from our fenced backyard. A few days later he came running out of a bean field that was down the street. He was covered in coal dust like someone had kept him in a coal bin. It was hunting season and we theorized that someone's thought Sport would be a good hunting dog. Little did they know that Sport was terrified of loud noises. Thunder, fireworks and, I'm sure, gunfire.

Sport lived a long life with us. We were so lucky to have him as a part of our family.
