Hello!

We have a six month old puppy and she can be a bit of a barker. My daughter just loves the dog and they are best friends. I was getting ready to give my daughter a bath and went to put her clothes and sheets and in the laundry while the water was running. The dog was being unusually quiet so I opened the back door and called her. I went out the back and called again. Oh my God, no dog. I scanned and no dog. I rushed back inside and got my daughter dressed as quick as we’ve ever managed. I was in a panic and kept thinking of those people who steal your dog for fighting or baiting. I thought that they must have known she was there because she barks a lot. I was in a rush to get outside and look for her when there was a knock on the front door. The lady from next door said ‘I just wanted to let you know that your dog was in our yard this morning..’ I must have looked in a state and all I could blurt out was ‘Is she there now because she’s gone’. Our neighbour laughed and said ‘Probably, I’ll go check’. I have never been so happy to see that cheeky dogs face and was so thankful to the neighbour. Our dog had broken two fence palings away from the fence which were speedily fixed. And she got a bath for her troubles!

  • I was minding a liitle dog for friends for the weekend. She normally sleeps with his owner. She wouldn’t go with me the first night. I had blocked one door open because she is used to a doggy door. I missed her during the night when I got up to go to the toilet. I search the whole large back yard twice with a torch calling her name. Then went into the carpot and discovered she had dug away the gravel at the gates at the verandah. I reckon she got out to look for her owner – sniffed where his vehicle had been parked, then went for a walk. Can you imagine walking abround your yard and out in the street calling a dog’s name at about 2.45 in the morning? I expected neighbours to come out and complain. She finally appeared in the gateway of a neighbour’s house. Glad I didn’t have to chase her because it was the middle of winter and I had pjs and dressing gown on. Next night she got up on my bed. When I pulled the sheets back to climb into bed, she was in it before I was. Her own said she would want to sleep with me. Then I remembered she slept with him if he took her with him. She has a short “coat” and felt the cold in the vehicle when the heating wasn’t on. Very affectionate loyal dog and barked if anybody went near vehicles – even friends.

  • It’s so nice to see your child bond with a pet, but yes I bet it made you heart drop and then you started thinking what were you going to tell your daughter !!!
    I know I did when my sons pet chicken died, I think she was more like a dog than a chicken followed him everywhere.
    Glad you found her again
