My dog, Dot, tags along when I go on long walks on county roads. She often gets distracted in her curiosity. The other day, she fell behind and never caught up. Since I went around the 4 mile block, I didn't see her on my return. I waited all day for her to come trotting home.

About 6 hours later, a young lady knocked on my door and asked if I'd lost a dog. There Dot was in the back seat of her small car. Relief! The lady asked her neighbors (in a small town of about 100 people over a mile from my house) about the dog and possible owner. Someone knew the connection. The young gal refused my "reward" offer.

My point is this: I'm misanthropic for the most part. But, there are times when the goodness of my fellow humans produce pause and cause for reconsideration.

So Dot must be in the habit of wandering off or else you would have known to back track and or call for her. 

Dogs are reason not to be caninanthropic. People are situational in their behavior. All black/all white aint all right. Shades of grey come into play each and every day.

So there are benefits to living rural.

Great news that you got your dog back.  It'd cut my heart out if we ever lost ANY of our kitties.
