So, I'm over at my neighbor's house across the street, chatting. My dog is in the house, looking out at me through the window. She leaves the window, then comes back a moment or two later. We continue chatting. The dog leaves the window again, then comes back. We chat on. Then I notice that it's been a few minutes since I've seen the dog in the window. A fine sheen of cold sweat starts to break out on me, as I know that my unattended dog is world class, olympic level
at several things:
* escaping out of my fenced in back yard, so she can visit my neighbors
* destroying my furniture
* chasing my cats inside (or rabbits outside)
But she's inside, so she can't get out. Right?
Hmmm, what? Why yes, that does
sound like my dog barking outside..............hahaha. But she's inside, right?
Oh lord, let me go check on her.
I go back inside and see my couch cushion is still in one peice, as are my cats. But that's odd.......the dog usually always comes running when I walk inside the house. I look upstairs, I look downstairs.
I call her name, panicking.
Nothing. Where the hell is she? She has
to be insi......well, this is MY dog, so let me check out back. It DID sound like her bark.
I look outside, and sure enough, she comes running up to me. The damn dog had jumped up on the latch of the side door in my kitchen, and let herself out. Scared the cr4p out of me, but the neighbor and I had a good laugh when I told her that yes, that was my dog barking outside.
Now, all I have to do is teach her how to drive, so she can go grocery shopping for me.
