Our front gate has a habit of not closing completely. Today, I went out to get something from my car and came back, apparently not closing the gate properly.

I was in a back room when I heard the commotion. I came out and immediately saw what had happened. Grabbing my car keys and some dog treats, I jumped in the CaticanMobile** and sped off to look for the two Guards who were on unauthorized maneuvers.
I found them in a cul-de-sac nearby and thankfully, when they saw me, they ran to the car and jumped in willingly. Everything ended happily, all Guards safe and sound.
Had Martin Van Buren Dog not sounded the alarm, however, it could have ended very badly indeed. She's been put in for a commendation, a tummy rub and extra treats.

** - We really need a better name for this car.
