PORTLAND, Ore. — A southeast Portland woman had her well-traveled yard decoration returned Sunday after an elaborate prank.
Edwina Cramer-Norris said she noticed her ceramic dog yard decoration had disappeared a month ago. She never thought she would see it again, but she began getting post cards in the mail a few weeks later.
The post cards were addressed “To Master,” and were from “Lucky Dog.”
On Sunday, Cramer-Norris said she saw a blue van leaving her driveway when she opened the front door.
She found the ceramic dog in a makeshift dog house with a photo album of the dog’s many adventures. Pictures showed the dog with a family in places like DisneyWorld, Graceland, the Mississippi River and New Orleans.
Cramer-Norris said one note read that her dog had to leave town because it was just too rainy in Oregon.
“It’s a strange thing,” she said. “We’re happy to have him back and it gives us something to share with others. (It’s) some kind of a strange story.”
The yard decoration was also returned with friends — two more ceramic puppies.
