Another lost and found
Several years ago friends of mine were camped in late fall in the rim area of Arizona. Their black lab (Hombre) wandered away from camp and was lost. Hombre was 10 years old and around 120 pounds. They search for Hombre into the night, but give up and return to Phoenix. They return the next two weekends and search the area, but never find their pet. Winter sets in to the high country, lots of snow and sub zero tempertures. They have lost thier friend of 10 years and fear the worst. They expect a call when someone finds the remains and Hombre's collar.
Six months later they get a phone call that Hombre had been found by some other campers. They bring him back to Phoenix and deliver him at my friends house. Hombre had lost 45 pounds and was looking quite fit. We have always wondered how he made it though that winter up north. Hombre lived another three years with my friends and the new dog they had replaced him with. He never wandered away from camp again.
