We were back at the trailhead, almost to the parking lot when we found him. He came running over to greet me and we had a great time playing. There was a family starting out on the trail and we thought he belonged to them, but they went on – and he didn’t.
Two more people headed to their car so he must belong to them. They got in their car – and he didn’t.
Oh, no. Does he belong to us? We’re the only ones left here.
My person and I went home and he followed us – right into the house. We had a great time playing. The only other dog friend I have that likes to play with me is my girlfriend Lucy.
I got so excited I dumped all the water out of my dish and turned the kitchen into a slip-n-slide, but when I wasn’t looking my person found out who my new friend is. His name is Houdini.
I’ve been called Houdini before – right after I jumped over the fence. I guess now I’ve finally met the real Houdini.
