Bad Boy

He's asleep now
Somebody got himself in trouble today.

Today while Rosa was at our house cleaning, Jack slipped out the front door. Rosa saw him on the street and called him but he just kept going.

She called [The Man I Love] to let him know, but I got home first and and discovered he was gone. I called and whistled and searched, to no avail.

Then, about an hour after Rosa had found him missing, I got a phone call from a neighbor. Jack was at her house, and ready to come home.

She'd come home to find him shut in her next door neighbor's yard. The gardeners had been working there, she said. He must have gone inside the gate, and then when the crew left they'd shut him inside. Our neighbor said he'd been frantic, hearing Rosa's calls and our calls while he was trapped behind the gate.

Minutes after her phone call, he was hurtling down the stairs into our house. Bad Boy! He is all tired out now.

Such an incredibly bad dog. SO BAD! I am feeling retroactively nauseated for you at the thought of the whole scenario.

Poor tired boy.

Poor thing, it probably stressed him out!

There is nothing worse than the sinking feeling of your dog missing! Glad he found his back relatively quickly

Glad he's back home! I've had to chase my two crazy knuckleheads more times than I can count, and my heart is always pounding until they are home safe, snoozing on the sofa.

For a few minutes there, my anxiety level went UP!
Relieved that your bad boy is home again where he is safe and loved.

Oh Jack! Shame on you for scaring us all. Glad he's back home safe and sound. He really is an awesome dog.
