Sneaky Little Scottie a/k/a The Great Escape



Who would ever think that this sweet little Scottie would sneak out of the back yard?

Have no idea why she would ever want to escape from the life of luxury she leads,

but escape she did!

Miss Maddy went out to get her for bedtime they go to bed at the same time

- around 8:30 PM).

Well, Maddy goes to bed and Muffy snoozes on a comforter on the floor and then crawls happily into her kennel.

Contrary to what some people think (one neighbor looked horrified

when I mentioned Muffy sleeps in her kennel), she loves it.



Anyhoo, back to the escape! Maddy went out to get her and couldn't find her.

It was getting dark out and guess what -- small black Scotties are really hard to see

in the dark! We both ran in to get shoes and a flashlight and tore out again to search for Muffy.

Of course, all I could think was small black dog running in the street would be pretty much invisible to cars!! Luckily, before I freaked myself and Maddy out too much,

our neighbor arrived carrying the little escape artist.

She hadn't gone far and was at another neighbor's trying to make friends with their cat!

Whew, disaster averted!

A gate had been left unlatched by unknown persons (I have my suspicions!).

Mr. Tennis has taken on the job of fixing the gates in the yard, so fingers crossed

that he gets that accomplished before the lure of the outside world, cats and other dogs has Muffy hatching another plot to get out and explore.

Happy you found your little escape artist so quickly! I would have been frantic. Muffy is adorable sitting next to her big sissy!

I don't believe a Scottie would EVER misbehave!

We better never get Muffy and Daizy together for a play date because they are two peas in a pod! So glad we got our sweet girls back this week!

Cute pictures of M&M!

So glad that Muffy did not wander too far away. If there is a way to get out, they always find it:)

Hopefully your gates are all fixed and there will be no more escaping for Miss Muffy!

Adorable photos as always.

Happy Weekend~

xoxo,

Aw, thank goodness Muffy was okay! Our dog once escaped and was gone for 3 days! Made for some sad kiddos!

SO glad you found her. Scout used to get out ALL the time. Last time she got out ( a few weeks ago) we found her barking at the front door to come in:) They know a good thing when they have it. but yes, there is the lure of mystery and adventure out there too,
