Daisy Dog was Found!

After the worst night of sleep in my life, as I was getting ready to take Lo to school the next morning, I got a phone call from Animal Services.  Someone had found Daisy and she wanted to check some information, and call her back.  After I hung up with her, a nice lady named Heidi called me and told me she had kept her warm and fed in her garage overnight.  I started crying - all night I kept saying to Bryan that I just hoped someone had taken her in and kept her warm.  But I was seriously worried that someone was thinking of her as an early free Christmas present.
Luckily, there are some good people left in this world.
She gave me her address, and she was only about 3 streets over from us.  Not shocking for me, since in the previous 2 times Daisy has Houdinied her way out of the yard she has been found no further than the corner of our circle :)
We had a lovely conversation with Heidi the Dog Rescuer - she said Daisy was wonderful and her kids didn't want to let her leave. 
I thought it hilarious that when her daughter spotted her in their backyard, she said "Mom, there's a little dog in our yard".  Little?  If Daisy is little, I hate to see what a big dog is :)
So, anyway, she is back home and happy, and so are we.
Who knew I loved this stupid animal so much?
