Questions swirled through McCormack's mind too as he was left with no other option than to carry his dog to work with him that day: How exactly did Paddy get out? Soon, the mystery began to unravel.
Looking back, McCormack recalled some other odd instances, like the several times he'd arrived home to find Paddy waiting for him outside the front door (and not in the yard). With this latest escape, he decided to inquire with his neighbors for clues. They told him they'd seen Paddy jumping on the trampoline out back, launching himself over the fence.
"That's how he got out. He is some dog," said McCormack. "He obviously followed my scent all the way to the station and jumped in the seat next to me. It's the only explanation I have."
