Wild Goose (or deer... maybe it was a rabbit) CHASE!!

Hello every doggie!

Momma isn't too pleased with me right now. She sayz Iz in the "dog house".... isn't that where doggies are supposed to be?

First off... I ate our remote control. I've watched Momma use it a million times, and I was getting bored watching animal planet while Momma was out earning the kibble... so I thought I might try to change the channels myself....

When I saw how upset Momma was... I was really really sorry....

Momma was just happy that I was ok, and I didn't hurt myself. She said the bat-a-rees could have made me sick! I didn't know that! No more animal planet for me I guess....

So today was a new day, and Momma said she was tired of the rain, and she said to me no matter what the weather, we would go for walkies. OMG! Walkies?!?!? Its been raining SO much here - it rained 26 days in June! Can woo beeweeve that? But Momma promised no matter what - we would have walkies today.

So she was working the comp-poo-ter... and I kept reminding her - walkies! walkies! walkies! Everytime she got up from her desk, I would do zoomies around the living room, and go crazy! FINALLY she got the hint... and it wasn't raining! YAY!!

So we headed off to Otter Ponds. Momma makes me wear a leash through the neighborhood til we get to the path - then its safe to go off leash - its all woods - lots and lots and lots of woods.

We finally got to the power lines, and this is where Momma wishes I could talk and tell her what I saw that made me run into the woods. Well, silly Momma, I can talk - you just need to listen!!

I saw a beautiful creature - it looked like a dog, but it was more beautiful, and when I ran towards it - it ran! at LIGHTENING speed! OH! Joy! something to chase! And I ran straight into the woods... I ran, and I ran - chasing the woodland creature - bounding and running and running and runn..... OMD... where am I?

I ran so far into the woods, I couldn't find my way back! I was skeered! I know Momma was looking for me ... I could hear her, but I couldn't tell where she was... and she told me she stayed for an hour looking through the woods trying to find me. She didn't have good shoes on, and she fell in the mud. She said she was really upset for coming out in the woods without her phone. What an ordeal!


She finally had to give up looking for me and go back to the house - it was a long walk, and she ran almost all the way. She got Chuck (our neighbor) and the kids and Bruce to come look for me. She called her sister Becky, and she called Mike who said they would come as fast as they could to come look.

Momma changed her muddy clothes and grabbed her phone. She jumped in the truck to look for me. JD was on his bike, Chuck was in the van with Alex and Bruce. Everyone went in all sorts of different directions and the search began.

Meanwhile, I found my way back through the woods, and hey! This looks familiar! YES! This is the path that me and Momma walk on!!! So I ran as fast as I could back the way we had came! Momma! I'm coming!!! Where are you Momma?!?!

I saw the boy (JD) on a bike - he was yelling at me - I didn't want to stop - I was running for home - follow me!!! He called my Momma and said he spotted me, but I was too fast - I ran past through the woods - I need to find my Momma!!! Moooooooommmmmmaaaa!!!


Momma found JD who said he just saw me.... and then she called Chuck. When they figured out the direction I was running - there was only one place I could be....


Thats where they found me!

Momma hugged me and kissed me and told me to never scare her like that again! She said that its going to be awhile before I can go off leash again. I don't know.. I think it will be a while before I run off like that again, I haven't been able to leave Mommas side since.

What an adventure! I ate my supper, and Momma is patting me... I think I will take a little nap.. and dream about that mystical woodland creature - and chase it!... in my sleep.

Oh...my...dog. Poor Lexi, poor mama. We don't need no lost doggies no more... Sometimes I feel lucky I have abandonment issues - I simply won't go far from mom or dad offleash. I think you learned your lesson, sweet thing, but how scary for your mom. It even scared me... lots and lots. You probably won't ever do that again. We are soooo glad you are home, dear one.

Sorry - gotta add one more thing; when I first came to mom and dad's, I also ate the remote. Later, it got worse. Also, I love those woodland creatures too - aren't they graceful though? If we're in deep woods, so to speak hehe, I get put on leash again. Ma knows there are lots of those elegant leapers out there.

Wow! What an adventure! I am glad you made it home safe!

I had planned on eating mom's remote control, but I will now have to re-think that idea! So far, I only eat tissues and paper products.....and tear up all of my new stuffies!

Barks at ya!

Oh Lexi
First of all I am so happy that you are okay and back safe at home.
That was such an exciting story!
I was on the edge of the computer reading! Your a good story teller- but listen- go easy on the mom!
Did you dream?
