We need to thank a wonderful Washington State Patrol officer. We own two small dogs who wear collars when they're outside which connect with an underground "fence."

Recently we were both away from home for a few hours. Upon returning, everything was normal except our small garage door was closed and the dogs were inside. We leave it open so they have access to the outside as well as the inside. When we checked a message on our phone answering machine, it was from Officer Shane Madsen. He'd found one of our dogs sitting on the middle line of Sandridge Road several blocks from our home and, reading the information on the dog's collar, returned him to our garage and shut the door.
