Got a phone call about 90 minutes ago. The lady on the phone says, "I am looking for a dog" I replied "I may have what you are looking for" She described her dog to a "T" and then she gave me a name. I called for "Sissy" and she came running. Finally, her owner had been found. No wonder she answered to "Missy" for 24 hours. LOL Anyway, the woman was on her way to get her dog. In the meantime I was in the middle of some much needed cleaning and I stepped out the back door to grab some plants to bring them back in the house, holding the door open with my foot and not thinking, Sissy took off out the door and she was gone. OMG, what am I going to do now. Still in my slippers, I am running after this dog in the pouring rain, she is long gone. I run back to the house to wait for the lady who was just pulling in the drive. Try explaining this 1 heh. We took off in our cars and searched the area. I lost track of the woman after about 20 minutes so I headed back home. She was driving by and honked so I assumed she had her Sissy back and I continued cleaning. A few minutes later, Duncan was going insane. I step out the door and here is Sissy with the owner not far behind. Finally Sissy is with her owner who was very pleased to have her back. Seems Sissy is able to jump her 6 ft privacy fence and has been picked up before by AC. Although she is micro chipped, the shelter did not think to check, therefore she was kept for 2 days before being returned to her owner. Thats what they do here to dogs without tags. Anyway...... she is home safe and sound for now, but I expect her to return.....LOL
I have a photo of a Lab w/ a duck in his mouth on top of a 10ft. cyclone fence, looking down at the other 2 Labs. He is obviously on his way back from scaling the fence on the way TO the duck. I show it to puppy buyers.
Im not so sure she is actually jumping the 6 ft privacy fence. I think maybe she has dug her way out. The fence around Duncan's pen is cemented into the ground so he cannot dig, although he is not a digger, better safe than sorry. I was told she had never been in a crate before and that is where I kept her. Her owner is going to get a crate today and try her out in it instead of leaving her loose in the yard while she is working. She was wonderful in the crate, not a peep. Getting her in there was another story in itself.
