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.
