Here’s a great short story!!

Did you hear the one about the border collie who chased a squirrel 10 feet up a sloping oak tree and was hidden in the leaves for days because he couldn’t get down again? (Cue sound of squirrel laughing.) It wasn’t so funny for Laddy, the Davenport, Iowa, dog that went missing last weekend. Thankfully, when Rod Stevenson heard a dog whining outside his house, he did something inexplicable even to him: he looked up. There was Laddy sitting on a branch. Stevenson shimmied up the tree and took Laddy’s collar. “It’s time for you to get out of this tree,” he said. Laddy was returned to his owners, who had been desperately looking for him.
