We used to have a dog that could climb our 8 foot wooden fence. The first time, the animal control lady took him wiht her, but called cause he had tags. THe second, she put him back, and he followed her right out. After that she would let him ride in the front seat of her truck and bring him home after my mom got home. After a few days, he started getting out and going to sit next to the road to wait on her.
I am glad that you found her, and that no one saw you (we hope) in you pjs.
