Yesterday was the one year anniversary of the day I got lost, May 28, 2006. I was in New Jersey and ran away from a strange house. I ran into the woods and wondered around for nine days. It was so scary.....there was no food, no water and I ate spinach from the farm field and a dead animal. The sky was making loud sounds and I was wet and cold and my nice warm bed was not there. There were strange animals in those woods and a few of them tried to chase me. I hid under things so they couldn't get me. Maybe they were hungry too!! On the ninth day, I wandered into a metal box because there was something in it that smelled good. The metal box closed and I was trapped inside. I ate the meat in the metal box I was so hungry. When the box opened, G-Mom and G-Pop were there. I was so HAPPY!!! They took me back to California and I will never run away again.
