We came home from a doctor visit about 5:30 this evening. My dear wife failed to lock the gate when she came through it. We let Princess (our dog) out in the back yard, not knowing the gate was unlocked. If it's not locked, she pushes against it, then roams around the neighborhood for a short while. I went out to the garage, and noticed the gate wasn't locked. Princess came running around some bushes between our place and the one next door. My very wet neighbor soon followed, and told me that Princess had visited him without him knowing it, and she jumped into his in-ground pool. He just happened to be by the pool, heard a splash, and saw Princess in there. Problem was - he had a pool cover on it at the time. She got wrapped up in it, and he had to pull her out. He was soaked, but not upset. Good neighbors are a precious thing.
