6. The runaway weenie:
“When I was a kid growing up in Texas, we had a cute little weenie dog named Golondrina. One day, the gate was accidentally left open, and she got out and ran away, leaving us heartbroken. A year later, the house next door to ours sold, and our new neighbors, from Kansas, had the cutest little dog — a weenie dog!
A few months later, after our neighbors had settled in, we started noticing certain things about the dog. I swear it felt like the dog knew us. Every time she saw us, she would whimper uncontrollably. So, one day, my parents finally decided to ask the neighbors how they had gotten the dog. They said they’d found her wondering their neighborhood in Kansas. After taking her to the vet to see if she was chipped, they had posted signs, but no one ever claimed her, so they decided to keep her. My dad told them we had a dog just like theirs, and her name was Golondrina. Turns out she was actually our lost dog, and they still had her collar that confirmed it was her!”
