One day in March, he opened the door and Annie ran into the surrounding woods.
While Gregory and his girlfriend joked about Annie growing up and leaving for college, it still hurt to say goodbye. “I didn’t see her for about a week and got pretty sad that maybe she wouldn’t ever come back,” Gregory said.
But just like a kid moving away for the first time — Annie still wanted to come home for a free meal and to play with the dog.
“I opened the front door the other day and there she was!” Gregory said. “[She] came up and greeted me on my shoulder.”
