This is Sadie. She is by far the easiest, best-behaved, sweetest-tempered beagle of the pack.
She doesn't chew on things.
She doesn't dig.
She never pees in the house - unless something scares her.
She always comes when she's called.
She stays off the furniture.
And she never runs away.
However, yesterday she disappeared. Vanished from the fenced-in back yard. Gone without a trace.
Normally a missing beagle would be full blown, three-alarm family emergency. The Teen was at his 8th grade promotion party and I, being on bed rest, was mostly helpless.
My K searched the neighborhood. First drove, then went on foot.
We both checked over the fence line trying to see where she got out, but found nothing.
We were standing on the breezeway after dark as Mr K was about to take one last look around the neighborhood when we heard a whine at the back door. The incredible disappearing beagle reappeared as mysteriously as she vanished.
It may be time to change her name to Houdini!
