Amber had an upsetting afternoon. Her boys came home early, but they didn't have a key and couldn't get in to love her! They managed to get themselves into the basement, but then couldn't reach high enough through the cat door to unlock this door at the top of the stairs...they were so close, but so far away!! Needless to say, she has very clingy all evening. That was a traumatic experience for such an affectionate dog. And, apparently we do need to hide a key outdoors somewhere for those times when they BOTH leave their key inside the house!
