Early in the morning about 5.15 a strange sight could be seen in our village (I wonder who saw?)

What well came down as usual let the dogs out did not check the gate - yes it was wide open- well two hounds were happily wagging at my feet but one was missing -

so in my pjs and a poncho I dond my shoes grabbed a stick and took myself up the drive and stood there whistling wondering what to do.

Cars flew past and after about 7 mins felt like twenty I saw a dark shape move down the village. She pottered back to me as if she had been on an outing - i was more concerned that she might have been clipped by a passing car. No in the light back in the kitchen she is none the worse for wear. Thank goodness adventure over I could put my heart back in the right place and start the morning again.

Morning all

We love our dogs so much don't we!


Very glad the story ended well! Our doggy disappears into the woods sometimes and I always fear the worst but he knows which side his bread is buttered on and always comes home! Jane x


I'm so glad your dog was ok gins!! :-)

It's always a heart-stopping moment when a pet wanders into danger or away for awhile - and they always seem to have a habit of just meandering back home with that air of complete and utter confusion at our concern... ;-) !!

Animal companions are such an enormous help in being able to cope with the isolation and challenge that illness brings & I, too, would have gone out my pjs to help one of mine!!

Love the bit about the yeti verygrumpy!! :-D



Our Staffy legs it and then doesn't come home. She is restricted to the back garden unless on a lead. My good girl, the collie/whippet is too bust rounding us up to stray too far. She has spent this evening cuddled up to me wathing my recording of The Paradise ... I think I might get hooked on that one. My first proper job was in a department store (Lewis's in Birmingham) and I've always had a bit of a love affair with Department stores.

when i finally felt confident to let Annie off her lead in the woods -she must have been about 6 months-and its next to a railway line she had gone bounding up the embankment (after rabbits?)and didnt come back for about 20minutes of calling her.panicking a bit at teh time cos of the railway line and derelict buildings beyond btuhse eventually came back safe and unharmed.!


I curse the delivery people when they leave the gate open especially when they know I have dogs.when Annie was a pup i let them out into the garden and then realised my gate was left open by someone .it was a fireworks night .and she ran straight out into the path of a car.thankfully the car wasnt speeding and she received only a couple of small wounds to her head.she did run up the next street in shock.managed to catch her half way along and carry her home.lots of cuddles required .
