Nugget Returns!

My dog spent this afternoon blazing a path through the food court of a nearby indoor mall, making friends with everyone while we sat at home crying our eyes out, after searching fruitlessly for 5 hours. He finally got BUSTED by security at the Sunglass Hut. An employee kindly drove him to the vet's office on her break, rather than calling animal control! Since he was chipped with AVID, all they had to do was scan him, and we were reunited 15 minutes later. You don't want to know how fast I drove. Total time away from my best friend who is now severely grounded (and newly decorated with tags, GPS chips, and remote-control flare beacons): 6 hours
