I'm always reading in the Victoria Advocate about people who lost their dog or cat. I also see signs posted around town with pictures of lost animals, on telephone poles, mailboxes, etc. I think most pet owners are responsible and don't let their animals run wild, but on occasion they do get out. Fortunately, the few times my dog got out, he always returned after cruising the neighborhood, and marking every post and tree in sight.  Speaking of dogs getting lost, check out this hilarious bit from comedian Steven Wright.
