Houdini strikes again

Posted in Uncategorized at 5:01 pm by Karma

Look at this smug face…

She got out of the yard again.  We have been doing so well.  I think the last time she escaped was early Spring.  I stayed pretty calm trying to find her, but when she wasn’t romping around the creek area I started to worry.  That’s her usual go to place.  Next two spots would be up in the houses behind the creek or the other direction would be in the maze of duplexes.  I kept listening for her collar making noise, or other critters throwing a fit, but super quiet.  As I was hoisting my large rear end over the fence, guess who comes running up all happy and proud.  I guess she was done chasing whatever it was that convinced her to escape.  And I have no idea where she escaped from this time.  But I hoisted her happy 40 pound butt back over the fence (long lead still dragging behind her which is a trick I use to be able to grab her in case she escapes), back over I went and we are all safely home again.  After her last escape so long ago, she doesn’t go out without a long lead attached and I am always with her.  However, I don’t always follow her through the woods.  I wait for her to come out the other side.  I only took my attention off of her for a minute today.  She didn’t come out the other side.  It’s like having a toddler in a grocery store.

Happy Fall Everyone.

    Karma she didn’t jump it did she or did she just find another spot to go out under.

    The visuals are just priceless!

    I can just see her looking so proud of herself! And she knew she was okay…she knew she wasnt lost…she jnew she would come back home once she caught that chicken, or whatever…so she doesn’t understand what the big deal is!

    Love you!!
