Howdy Doodie! You sniff me out as you wagged over? It's my new O de Toilette. Rolled in it in the park yesterday afternoon. Special. O De Ded Hedgehog. Smells. Luscious. Hope it'll make my Toffee sweetie swooooon as we spooooon. Had a good week everybloggie? Bit of an unusual one in my neck of the woods. Haaa!!! Specially in the woods where I went for a walk last week. It's the size of a pocket hankie. A Man Size one. Bout 2 miles square with a pond in the middle. BUT. Atishoooo away from the M25 Motorway Madness bordering one side. And a sneeze away from two zoooming zoomer roads on other. You've been blessed already if you're lucky enough to live in the squillion billion ££££ houses on the fourth side. So. There I was. Off my lead staying close to the leggeds like a good boy(no worries I'm always on my lead near roads) Minding my own while sniffing every other doggies business. When. I spy. A spaniel. No lead. We wags up together to bark the time of day.
Squaries stop. Wait for his to appear. No leggeds in view. No whistles. Bells. Nothing. Wait. And wait. Shout out for his leggeds. Nadda. No reply. Hmmm. Wait more. Leggeds finally inspect Spaniel Boys tags. Daddy Square calls the mobile number. Asks if they've lost their dog. Now. A quick quiz. Do you think the legged who answered the phone was a) Woeful. Worried sick? b) Phew. Relieved? c) Grovelling. Grateful? Yours and mine would be all three. Am I right? Course I am. If you guessed a, b or even c.WRONG!! The short reply? "I'm abroad. Ring the other number" Dog and Bone plonked down. The squaries were gob smackerred. Called the land line number, expecting no answer as out looking for Spaniel boy....nope.Phone answered. Daddy Square blahblabla...arranges to meet Spaniel Boys legged sissy in 1/2 hour.
Surprise!!! Surprise!!! Lookie at me with my halo. Guess you read the title of my bloggie and though Uh Oh Eric's using his triple troubles huh? No. For once I'm the SAINT of the tale. Yep. For finding the lost boy. Eric Smart eh?
Here's the lost boy. Giving me a going over. Xpecting my halo to have slipped to where he's sniffin'. As if. Spaniel Boy. The runaway......
now he's the Sinner.OOohaaaa!!! Lookie at him. The naughty little Devil. Yapped he'd escaped from his garden, which backs onto the woods, at least a couple of hours ago. While his big legged sissy was looking after him. His Mom was on holiday. Barked he'd was 9. Lived with his leggeds since a pup. And was up for adventure...
Anyways. Off we wagged. Me off lead. Sinner on mine. Making sure he didn't do a Houdini. I didn't mind. Xcept when I caught him giving MY Mom some loving. Grrrrrrrrrr. Sinner didn't do walking. Really was a right little Devil Mom said. Lurking then lurching. Zigging then Zagging. Pulling like billy-O. To sniff. Every single. Twig. Leaf. Tree. Speck of dirt. Then pee on every other one. Cast your minces on me Eric, wagging along all Saintly. Then at Sinner sniffin' n a-pulling. (Mom would be grateful for suggestions of how to disguise her one ape long arm. Thanking you.)
Kind of cute little devil though isn't he? We liked him a lot. Finally met up. Sinner wasn't wagging to see his legged sissy. Not. At all. Didn't even pull towards her. No greetings. Yelps of joy. No jumping. Or kissies. What's that about then??? I'd go bonkers - bet you'd do the same. (Apart from you cool cat Brucey) As for sissy. No cuddling. Or scritchies. No welcome pats n pets for lost little Sinner. Awww. Wanted to shed many a tear.
Squares asked how/when Sinner escaped. Answer was "He might of tunnelled under the garden fence maybe a couple of hours ago" Thanked us and stuffie. Hadn't noticed he'd gone. WHAT????NOOOOOOOOO. Sinner yanked his legged to the pond and was gone. Weird what? No bloggie seemed all that bothered bout loosing the lovely Sinner. Isn't that Terrierble? Upsetting too. Jeepers. Could of strayed onto the raging roads. Maybe he's always escaping? Is a devoted one person only dog? Hmmm. Don't know. But been wondering all week. It's made leggeds and me feel sadder than sad. Paws crossed he got a loving welcome home later. Anyways. Need to bark my thanks to him. For making me look like a Saint. Both off my lead and on. This week at least. Well. Till the rolling thingy yesterday....
OMdoG...Is This Fun or What???
