Our little lost dog was reunited with his his owner this afternoon :)
I took him along to the veterinary surgery to be scanned to see if he was chipped - and he was!
A few phone calls later and his owner arrived to collect him.
His name is Zippy.

A firework had spooked him at around 2pm and he had run away. 3 hours and 3 miles later we found him wandering around a car park. While watching him to see if he belonged to anyone he went to a car and lay down beside it. We thought he maybe belonged to this car but when the owners of the car returned we discovered he didn't. The family and myself have been in constant contact since and they agreed to home him themselves if we couldn't find the real owner/couldn't find an ideal home/I couldn't manage him myself. (the world is full of lovely people you know!)

When the owner arrived to collect Zippy today he arrived in the same make/model car as the car that Zippy chose to lay by.
