But he was crawling on the ground, acting like he was trying to dig his way back home but he couldn't get there. He just kept moving around on all fours, pawing at the ground. It was quite a sight and a crowd was gathering.
I stood there watching. Actually, it took me quite awhile to figure this sight out.
