The Wildest Thing Happened

sameness 2

So, here I am taking a little stroll. This was a while back during a trip to visit the grandpeep. Very quiet neighborhood so I was off leash.

But, guess what I did this morning?

I took myself from my backyard kingdom into my side yard. And my front yard. And all around the yard. And nobody knew it. One peep was in the office working. The other peep drove up from a meeting to find me unattended. Out. Of. The. Gate.

It was the wildest thing. Being all alone like that.

Huuummmm……wonder how that happened? I haven’t a clue. And if I did, I wouldn’t tell the peeps. Gotta keep ’em guessing.

They were scared though. Sorry about that peeps.

    I know you up set the peeps. Some unkind person could have taken you away from them. I know this does happen. So do not do that again Stuart.

    We have been on a few “dog walkies” as SHE calls them. Once I (Duffy) walked out the door when HE was giving out Howloweenie candy…..just followed the kiddies down the street. Mum was freaking out cuz our neighborhood is not lighted at night and we are all 3 black which is undetectable. SHE did find me across the street – just visiting the neighbor, Sam the Collie. HE got a good scolding. Andy took a dog walkie just the other day when the gate was left open, but he came right back cuz it was dinner time. You’d better be careful, don’t take any treats from strangers! Wouldn’t want you to get snatched up.

    Don’t feel so bad Stuart….Bites got out once…roamed a round for a while and could not get back in….now i the gate is open he will not go out there…..told me..Sus, No Water, No Food….don’t ever go!

  5. we bet the panicked – one day our gardening service left our back gate open and I took myself over to my buddies house but Mom and Dad were in an absolute panic until they found me.

  6. Bonnie n Kenzie says:

    Live like the gate is always open! But be careful out there. Like Da Sus said….no foodibles or bevvies outside the perimeter.

  7. Ooooo, I’ve done this before and my parents were so upset. They said, “What? Don’t you like it here? Would you prefer to still be living on the street?” Then of course Mom added, “Don’t scare me like that. I’d die if something happened to you.” Oops.

  8. At least ya gave da peeps a scare.

  9. Anonymous says:

    Oh, my goodness, what a scare you must have given the Peeps! You have to understand that even though nothing happened to you, it’s always the ‘what if’s’ that the Peeps think of afterwards that can make them sick with worry. Like, what if someone dognapped him? What if he tries to cross a busy street in traffic? What if we never find him again? You get the idea, Stuart. Please remember to always stay safe!

  10. Stuart, Mama thought she hitched my leash to a neighbor’s mailbox, while she sprinted home to get the umbrella..
    Our neighbor’s Cockatiel Dude started screaming to his Peeps that I was loose, even though I was running towards Mama…the neighbor came running out in his PJ’s cause the Dude Alarm had gone off!

    We have never been outside without a leash. We are surprised that we don’t have to wear leashes in the house. We even have a gate in the kitchen so that we can’t get to the front door. Mom is overprotective and she plans on staying that way.

  12. Riley Puppy says:

    Dear Stu, Are you sure your REAL name, or maybe your middle name isn’t “Houdini”? That’s what Mum says my name should be, but I just look at her innocent-like, because I dunno what she means—just ‘cuz I get Wiley some times too!
    Too bad we can’t be “Wiley” together—what FUN that would be!

    You’re not gonna like this. When we moved here (before Kyla) we had a choice of the lots on this cul-de-sac (and you thought birds did do Français). Guests arrived and Kyla bolted for the great desert. It didn’t last long-she hit the vacant lot across the street with the “jumping cholla”. That’s a native plant to avoid-I guess it spreads seed by attaching stuff to you and letting you do the work. The problem is that it attaches by little fish hook thingies (think Velcro) and pulling them out is like pulling teeth from a bird-now why did I pick that example-OUCH. Kyla never bolted again.

  14. Oreo says:

    Well…what happened with you stays with you!!!


  15. Ranger says:

    I wish I could get out on my own. I could go on a GRRRRRREAT bunny hunt.
    Glad you didn’t go far on your walkie. What an adventure.

  16. Kaci says:

    She woke up and saw front door open. Dogs not in house. Ran out in PJs to find the two little ones running about front unfenced yard for rabbits! Not too scared of cars, but……….. Bobcats, Coyotes and Javelinas and BIG owls…………… She was not a happy camper with Him who left the door open!

  17. Rowena says:

    The dogs in our little mountain village are always taking themselves for a walk! Let’s see, there’s the pizzeria dog, the wolf-dog named Baskia that lives further up, the scaredy-cat dog that runs away when he sees us….I wish our peeps would let us run loose too.

  18. Alyson (on behalf of Oban) says:

    I think it must be hide the Scottie day as I decided to hide this morning and when Mum got home she panicked cos she couldn’t find me…..still haven’t told her where I was hiding

  19. we can give them the bestes adrenaline-candy efurry day :o)

  20. PigLove says:

    Oh no my pal! Please be careful out there in the wild – outside the confines of your kingdom. We wouldn’t want anything to happen to you. I can imagine what your humans went through – they must have freaked! Maybe next time, carry your cell phone in case it happens again. Then you can call them. Safety first my friend. XOXO – Bacon

  21. Two French Bulldogs says:

    Oh my dawg! You better not run away again
    Lily & Edward

  22. gentlestitches says:

    Oh poor peeps! Our Jack sometimes manages to take himself for a walk! It is scary for us! He never says how he got out either. ❤

  23. dougalldog says:

  24. Marty the Manx says:

    Glad you were safe on your walk-a-bout!
