Nancy’s Gonna Kill Me
Two reasons really.
First, she’s away, but we video chat or Skype a couple times a day. Her first question is invariably,
“Do I still have four dogs.”
Until today, I could answer “Yes.” Without equivocation.
Derby went missing. Derby is our street dog-rock star
He sneaks out of the fenced yard occasionally just to roam the neighborhood. As soon as he hears me call he is looking to hightail it back inside – taking the most direct line possible – which usually is through the hedge or his secret escape hatch.
Today was different.
It was time for me to pay attention to the dogs. I fussed over Sofi, ‘cuz she’s a girl and girls like being fussed over. I patted Oliver on the head because he is aloof and really doesn’t give a shit what I do or when I do it. Sedona is my pal and came over for her share of rubbin’.
Derby was… missing. Not on the back of the chair. Not in a sunbeam. Not in the backyard. Not shut up in the garage. Not roaming the neighborhood.
He was gone.
I wasn’t freaking because he likes me and I figured eventually he would show up.
On a whim, I asked Sedona,
Oh she busted him good. Not a second’s hesitation, she took me from the kitchen through the living room, into the bedroom and into the closet.
Why? I have no clue.
I guess he misses Nanc’ and decided to hang in her closet.
Maybe the fact I found Derby will get me off the hook for the second reason she will kill me: posting this picture of her closet.
Bah, she’ll get over it.
Maybe he sensed a thunderstorm a’coming. Derby and Grandad’s Sandy have a LOT in common, maybe they’re souldogs.
Funky bowling shoes!
K8: could be, but it’s clear and sunny and no threat at all. That is usually Sedona’s hiding place and I think that’s why she busted him.
And good job scoping out the bowling shoes – yup goes well with her leopard ball!
ha!!!! that’s hysterical….funny Sedona busted him!!!!
Yep…..she’s gonna kill ya. No doubt in my mind. 🙂
You could restrict her from accessing the interwebs? You would do that for a friend, right?
All that says to me is Derby has torn up something he knew he had no business messing with! Big Sigh…..but I guess I’ll probably find it when I get home!
