Luis Leon of East Hampton parked his car on Collins Avenue last Thursday morning and went into the I.G.A., around the corner on North Main Street. He left the motor running with one window open to allow air to circulate for his pets, two fluffy white dogs.
When he came out of the store one of the dogs was missing. He called police, who canvassed the area, searching in vain for the animal. Mr. Leon went home and faxed a photo of the dog to police, who also sent it to the animal control department.
A few hours later the dog showed up at Mr. Leon’s house. It had jumped out the window and run home on its own.
