Red is in Israel with Pat, and Pat has been kind enough to share his amazing story with me. Pat told me .. 'December 26th 1999 I was doing some work in the garden when he came along the pathway with a
Labrador Retriever. Our gaze met, he left the Lab, turned the corner, jumped over the garden wall
and laid down beside me. I saw that he had no collar on and I began to talk to him and tell him how
beautiful he was. He remained beside me and as it began to get dark I told him I had to go in now and
said he should go home as I was sure they were looking for him. I was inside just a few minutes when
I heard the front door open. I called out to my daughter, got no answer and turned around to find him
standing in the living room. He had come around the house, opened the door and come in.
The Vet estimated him to be about 2 yrs. old and gave him the birthday of July 4th, as I am American.
I said it suited him as he was something of a firecracker! Red spent the next 13 yrs. with me and we
shared many wonderful adventures together. I have had many dogs over a lifetime but the Red Dog
was by far the most exceptional!
