Oh wow, I am so happy you got her back and nothing bad happened. I would so go off if it was the meter man’s fault.  Would probably be a good idea for a lock also because if anyone can just unhook it(like if it is right next to the sidewalk), I am sure there are kids out there that would think it would be fun to let someones dog out.

So glad you found her!!  I would follow up for sure.  This could’ve turned out much worse.

The guy who mows our grass does that!!  I did the same thing one day…opened the back door into our fenced in yard, and out my pup went.  Don’t you just want to yell, if you found it closed, close it when you leave!!!!!

i’m glad you found her! one time my Chi Mix got out when we only had her for a year… The mail man must have left the gate open when he came to put the mail… We ended up finding her at the pound the next morning 🙁 she was so scared. We had to pay a little over $250 to get her out.  Thank god you found your doggie!

I just wanted to chime in here – I always recommend checking your gate is closed before even letting the dog out. I do this whenever I’m dog sitting for someone (we don’t have a fenced in yard), or just helping a friend out with their dogs while I’m over.

The reason behind this – I had a friend this past year that had a repair person over. They let themselves in the backyard, and failed to close the gate when they left. Two of her dogs got one – one was brought home by a kind stranger, but the other was hit by a car just up the street. He sadly passed away from internal bleeding, at only 2-3 years old. The company refused to take responsibility (as you should be checking your own gate). So now, I always check.

Better to be safe than worry about losing a dog.
