Jail Break

I'm driving down my street Monday after work and notice a dog in front of my house that looks suspiciously like Trey. I then notice another dog behind him and think that one looks exactly like Fancy. Before I can process this information, they spot me and go hopping ass up the street.

Shit. Slam on the breaks, throw the car in neutral, grab the emergency brake and door handle and leap out. I'm yelling for the dogs and they're ignoring me. Maybe yelling, "GET YOUR THREE-LEGGED ASSES BACK HERE NOW!" is not the best way to coax a dog back home.

I finally run up the street after them. The cross street to my neighborhood is really busy and I was afraid they'd get out into traffic. I'm able to get them turned around and headed for the house. The run right past me, smiling of course, and head into the back yard like nothing is wrong. Seems the gate was opened somehow. No, they couldn't have done it...it's a son-of-a-bitch to open with two hands, let alone one paw.

First thing I did was put the lock back on the gate and hide the key from those two. They're smarter than they look. They're pretty tight lipped about the whole incident. No matter how many times I ask, "How in the hell did you get out?", neither one is saying a thing. Sneaky little bastards.


I bet they had copies of the keys made. You should check their dog bowls.

Sounds like the 3 leggers are planning a coup! You better watch out!

um, ever stop to consider that someone is poltergeisting your house? Maybe the ex? Maybe the neighbor?

First the keys disappear and reappear in the...trashcan?

Then the amazing houdini act of the 3-pawed wonders?

Hmmm...your dogs sound much smarter than mine. I wonder if they could teach my dog to do something other than lay around on top of the central air vent all day.

These types are known to do this. No comfort I realize. This is when you exert yourself as the smarter, stronger, more thoughtful species.
I have your back!!
