We checked into a motel in Gillette, unpacked, left Bode in the room, and ran out to get a late dinner. When we got back, we were SHOCKED to see him standing outside of the hotel waiting for us. He had OPENED THE DOOR, trucked down to the lobby, got out through the automatic doors, and was hangin out like it was no big deal. We would have just died if we wouldn't have found him, or someone picked him up, etc. No one from the hotel staff saw him exit, and this is a really nice hotel where a dog without an owner should be a surprising thing.
