    We have an escape artist with separation anxiety in our family, too. When he gets out, he makes a bee line for the main road to go play in traffic, so it was imperative that we figure something out....

    Erie Canal- Pete Seeger or Bruce Springsteen. I was actually just listening to the Springsteen version today and love it. That's if you're counting the long ears, too. "I gotta mule and her name is...
