Eventually this morning after about an hour of NWD being missing in action, my mobile phone rang. It was a nice man from round the corner who had found Millie wandering in his garden. That's the problem with being adventurous in a new location you see. You can't always find your way home again!!! He called me, and I duly ran up the road to fetch her back. When I got to number 7 Chestnut Road - Millie was sitting in his hallway as if she'd lived there all her life! Tail wagging - looking at this chap as if he was going to be the one to give her some breakfast!!!
She was wet through and very muddy - so had clearly been on a round trip - and the house she found was the closest she could manage to home.
