A family in North Carolina thought their 5-year-old Golden Retriever Riley had run away for good - that is until they got good news from a doggy daycare.
Riley broke free from the family's backyard this week until they got a call that Riley was safe and enjoying himself with friends at daycare.
Apparently, the owner had driven past the daycare earlier in the day when Riley saw dogs playing.
When he got a chance, Riley sneaked away, then walked more than a mile from the backyard to his buds at daycare.
