Mardi Disappears

1991. When we brought Mardi home from the breeder she weighed about 3 or 4 pounds. To my estimation she was just one big peering eyeball. Well, somehow, in our brand new house (an old house, but brand new for us) with an acre of heavy woods Mardi ran off and hid. She did not know what was going on, or perhaps she was just being playful. Anyways, we could not find our brand new doggie.
We were beside ourselves with panic. The woods were dark and heavily grown with foliage... how do you find a tiny black poodle in those woods? - Well you don’t. She finds you.
After a panic stricken 30 minutes of searching I noticed a single, peering eyeball among the dark green hosta. It was Mardi.
She was never lost again, until now.
