After returning home from an evening out with friends, I was sitting in my living room when someone knocked on the door. It was the guy who just moved in across the street. He told me his dog got out and wanted to know if I had seen him. I was a little surprised because the dog he described was standing right behind him. When he finished his story, I pointed and said, "Is that your dog?" He laughed and said yes. I invited him (and his dog) in. We talked for awhile - then he told me he used his dog as a way to meet me, but he didn't know he was behind him. This was the summer of 2000. We are still together, including the dog, whose name is Happy!
