So I come home from work today and my husband, who got home 5 minutes before I did, comes flying out the door. "Where's Smudge"? I asked him what he meant.. he said that Smudge isn't in the house.
OK.. I am MAD. Smudge is my 15 year old blind, deaf, terrier mix. He's still got a working sniffer and a wagging tail. Doing pretty great for a 15 year old stinky dog. I love this dog.
So I run madly all over the house, tear UP the back yard. Y'all - it was 104 today with the heat index. My husband remembers letting both of the dogs out in the morning right - but he can't remember if Smudge came in when he let our other dog in right before he left for work. Well - he apparently DIDN'T.. and of course, the backyard gate was WIDE OPEN.
I am so hoppin' mad. His response to my silent wrath was "Well, I am guess I am forgetful today." IS THAT ALL? YOU FRICKIN' GUESS YOU WERE FORGETFUL???????? How about negligent? Or careless?
I've posted on Facebook and craigslist. I've driven to my office to make up about 100 flyers to put up in area businesses. I've sent emails to all of the vet offices in the area. I have a crew of people walking/driving the neighborhood, in addition to myself.
Other than praying.. don't know what else to do. I am still so mad at my "forgetful" husband. No.. I haven't yelled yet, because I can tell that he really does feel badly about it - but I want to VERY much. Tongue-holding is so hard.
Can y'all send good vibes/prayers/thoughts out that we find our Smudge safe and sound?????? The kids are devastated!!!!!!!!
