Saturday I had scheduled a pedicure in preparation for BlogPaws, I also had a few errands to run.
Hubby’s plans included cleaning up the side yard so he could take advantage of a shed special the Home Depot had.
I left the house around 8:45 am and got back around 1:00. As I pulled up to my house I noticed a chocolate lab in my neighbor’s yard.
Hmm, I wonder whose dog that is? I thought to myself.
Then I looked up at my house and saw the gate was open.
I looked back at the dog, “That’s my dog!”
I pulled over and rolled down my window to shout up at Hubby who stood in the yard grinning at me.
At this point, Delilah also saw me and ran up to the car, which is exactly when the grin left Hubby’s face as he realized Delilah was loose and I knew it.
The exact same thing happened a month or so ago when he got a new grill. My son-in-law came over to help unload the grill and they left the gate open. It was a nice day and I had the back door open and Delilah took advantage of it.
I went outside to discover Delilah monging on something in my neighbor’s yard (which I’m pretty sure she was doing on Saturday also.)
I was good, I kept my cool and simply said, “WE have to make sure the back door is closed when WE are leaving the gate open.”
His response, “The back door was closed.”
He just didn’t realize Delilah was already outside.
Today we ask you to remember those who paid the ultimate price in service to their country.
Happy Memorial Day from all of us at Heart Like a Dog.
