Kate Is Back!

Today, driving out to the highway under a relentless rain, I saw Kate in the back of a pick up truck that we were passing on an especially tight spot on the road. "There is our dog", I yelled to Mark as I jumped out of our slowly moving vehicle. I then ran down the road after the truck waving my arms and yelling. They stopped real quick. I have no idea what they thought was happening. The young man jumped out with a puzzled look and I exlaimed tearfully, "Oh, you've got our dog. Our dog Kate." Kate wriggled. He released her from the tether and explained that he had posted her being found on the local radio and had been asking around everywhere and hauling her as well. Such nice people. I think it was our neighbors Russ and Rusty, but I was in such an emotional state I had only eyes for Kate. I forgot to thank them or offer to pay for their time and her food as well. I just grabbed her and ran back to our truck and away we went. Our crazy Katydiddle is home.


  1. Well I am so glad for you guys, the horse is back the dog is back....hey is that a country song or what.....just kidding I am glad for you, all is right at the Ranch on Salmon Creek.

  5. All's well that ends well.
