I thought you might like this story- last night my in laws dog broke out of the pen we have outside when I was letting my boston back out to come in. I managed to hook one finger in her collar and her response was to drop and spin circles on her back- strangling my finger, choking her self and screaming and trying to bite me because of it. I thought my finger was going to break and rip off. really. so Im screaming she screaming, tina comes running from inside, weilding the sissors incase something needs to be avenged ( hey! we live in the country- coyotes are around...what sissors would do is anyones guess but she tried!) after she stapled her finger ( she was upholstering something in the house) steps on a huge tack that was on the porch ( you know the fly tape ones?) so now we are ALLLLLLLL screaming and hopping around. Except Koda who is looking on confused. . . and the dog chooses that moment to spin the other way releasing me. Excitement over? no- the new rescue Boston slips out of the door and takes off across the yard and to the wooded area ( 8 acres of it, bordered by highway) . She had been out ALL DAY without a leash and went nowhere why she chose dusk to run off is beyond me! So I chase in my nightgown and flipflops and finally thinking shes about to just be GONE I decided to scream BUTTONS SIT in the bad witch voice and what does the stinker do? DROPS like she is made of lead and sits there and waits for me to collect her. I finally go inside, legs are disgustingly dirty and itchy from the citters living in the waist high grass.I don't mind helping the inlaws but I would be lying if i said I will be sad when I am no longer dog sitting! Sorry if it reads funny its pulled off my facebook .
