"Ozzy is in a hotel somewhere and has taken his credit cards and some money with him," the source said. "But he is not brilliant on his own and is a bit like a puppy — he goes missing but then usually turns up sooner or later."

A neighbor brought the chihuahua to our house thinking that it was ours.
It wasn't, but we decided to take him in until the owner could be found.
We named him Chico while he stayed with us.
He liked to bite a lot.

I didn't like Chico very much, and wanted to find his owner as soon as possible.
We took him to a vet. Chico was chipped, so we learned how to contact the owner.
We called the owner.
She was relieved that her Chihuahua had been found, so
were we, and my wife took him to the lady.
My wife said that the lady was strange, and that her son was even stranger.
I didn't think much about this, but was only relieved that Chico the Chihuahua was no longer nipping our body parts.

And then we started getting strange phone calls.
(I still had a land line.)
The calls came at all hours.
There was a growling sound on the other end.
Sometimes it was just a hoarse, rasping, unintelligible voice.
It was eerie.
Almost scary.
Chico was still at it...or
Was it the crazy lady?
