Too much adventure for me today!!!

My favorite sweet dog in the world Magnus decided to go out of our unlocked gate for an adventure without his collar today. I'm not sure why the gate was unlocked. His collar was off because he wakes Max up when he's wearing it. I just hadn't had the chance to put it back on him. On top of that, most people don't like him because he looks like a mean dog. UHG!!!
Anyway... I waddled after him barefoot as he ran farther and farther away from me. One of my neighbors who I hadn't met till today asked me if I needed help. I explained how far along I was, that Mag will just keep running and that he wasn't wearing his collar as I bawled. She couldn't understand most of what I was telling her I'm sure. She got her 2 dogs and kids and loaded them in her mini van so she could search for him. I went to get my car, but before I could even pull away from the house, she was parked behind me with him sitting in her passenger seat. I know for a fact that I would have never seen him again if she hadn't helped me. There's no doubt. I'm of course still crying because I'm an emotional wreck, but I don't think a plate of cookies will express my appreciation enough. Some people just don't know the impact they have on others. She's my angel and Magnus is in BIG trouble. I'm looking into obedience school for him now. I'm sure happy to have a happy ending thanks to my sweet neighbor.
