Hugo was a pooch on a mission when he set out from his north St. Louis County home. While his parents were looking for him all over, he was happily making his way to “Happy Tails Pet Hotel and Playland” in St. Ann, Missouri, which was more than a mile away from his home.

Hugo was captured bolting into the daycare facility by their security camera. He made a beeline to his daycare buddies, happily exchanging greetings and joining in to play! The staff was glad that Hugo was safe, and quickly made a call to his family.

Apparently, Hugo is a frequent boarder at the facility. But it was his special love for his friends that made him cover the long and difficult journey on his own. He must have missed them a lot!
