Kalo is home.
He always was.
The eight-year-old chocolate Labrador reported missing from his home last week was found Saturday morning — in the garage of his North Shore home.
“Our son Keith liberated him when he opened our garage door,” said Alan Faye. “My truck had been sitting, locked up with a dead fuel pump.”
The Faye had been searching for their beloved Kalo after he disappeared Wednesday. They posted fliers, drove around, contacted the radio, TV, and newspaper, alerted friends and hoped for his return.
Thursday and Friday came and went, no sign of Kalo.
Saturday, Keith Cabe parked his truck by the family locked garage to get a few things from it. It hadn’t been open since Wednesday.
“I went out and when Keith opened the garage door, Kalo came flying out,” Faye said.
The dog, dehydrated and skinny, dashed for food in his home and with his tail wagging furiously, ate and drank. He had been without food and water.
Faye, while delighted to have Kalo back, said he felt a bit silly after sounding alarms over what he thought was a lost dog, or what he also believed could have been a canine-napping.
He still can’t believe Kalo was in the garage the whole time and never barked to alert them.
“Dumb,” he said, “but now very very happy. Amen!”
