In Louie’s younger days, it would have been normal for the family dog to go missing for so long. But now the sheepdog is getting on in years, and his current prolonged absence is worrying his owners. They perhaps wonder, had something bad happened to him? Then, out of the blue, he returns with a note on his collar – and the family can’t believe what it said.
