My Heart Stopped

This afternoon after lunch I let both my dogs out in the fenced back yard. They seemed to be enjoying themselves so I decided to let them stay for a while. I went upstairs to watch relax and watch some TV. About a hour later I noticed that neither of dogs had scratched to come back in so I went to check on them. Doodle was waiting at the door to come in but puppy (aka Angel) was no where to be seen. At first I thought maybe I had let her in and forgot. I called for her in the house and in the back yard to no avail. I really started to freak out at this point. You see this dog is like my third child (I don't mind admitting this). As I was calling her name out inside the house I looked out the front window and say a white blur running out from the wood area into our gravel driveway. Sure enough puppy had somehow gotten out of the back yard fence and went on a road trip. Luckily she heard me calling her and came right back, although I don't know how long she had been out and about or how far she had gone. We think we discovered how she got out and hope that doesn't happen again.

It must be the weather getting them all excited or something!

My son let ours out yesterday and then forgot. My husband and I came home from running an errand and found one of ours sitting next to the lamp post at the foot of our driveway, looking guilty, and the other dog was nowhere to be found.

We called for about 15 minutes and became increasingly panicked, until my neighbour came over to say that he'd just found her sitting on his front steps (which we couldn't see because of a tall cedar hedge), keeping his dog company - she just didn't feel like answering our yells. She slunk off home and hid behind the couch when he brought her back.

I just about didn't want to read your post because of the title - I thought, oh no, this is going to be a sad story. Glad it had a happy ending!

Very scary! I hope you did figure it out because she'll go out again if you haven't found it. So glad it had a happy ending!!
