The prodigal returns
We interrupt our regular program to announce that our Great Pyr Arpad, aka Vanilla Iceberg, was located after spending two nights in an undisclosed location. The Spousal Unit found him while checking out some backroads, when he heard the car and ran out of a garage. He even jumped into the car, an action that usually requires an act of Congress.
The gentleman who had been hosting him said "I ain't never seen a dog that big. I been calling him Snowball."
We are glad to have him back and devoutly hope that the 170 wanderer didn't eat anybody important.
