Yup. Lexi's been a naughty little pup. She started the weekend by chewing her collar. Yes, I did take it off because the jingling drives me crazy .. but she did get on the couch to get it.
Because she didn't have a collar, she had to "skip and go nekked" this weekend. This morning the sun actually came out (first time in days) and I decided to vaccuum Mike's floors and wash the kitchen floor. He had the pups upstairs in the office with him, so I could work dog-free.
Well, apparently, the dogs came downstairs without me noticing, and I had the door open to dry the floors - and you guessed it - they were footloose and fancy free.. for who knows how long.
A neighbor called animal control, and luckily Derby was wearing his tags ... and Mike got a call. He was surprised because he thought I had the dogs, and I was surprised because I thought the dogs were upstairs with him. So, our juvenile deliquent pooches were returned in a police car.
Luckily - no harm, no foul... and we went today and bought Miss Lexi a new collar, and she is leashed outside thinking about the fright she put into Momma.
So, sorry little pups... Lexi can't come out to play today... but she says she is very sorry. I can't stay mad at her for long... ;-)
