Mumsy said I was a little bit naughty the other night. We didn’t know the UPS man had put our foods and treats on the porch. Mumsy saw the box there after 8:00 p.m. and we went out to get it. I always help her bring in the packages that we get. Mumsy didn’t know the gate had been left open but I knew right away and took off for a walk.
Mumsy called me but I wasn’t ready to go back in yet so I didn’t obey. She told me I was being naughty but I wanted to go visit my friends and do a little marking so they would all know I had been there to visit. I didn’t care that I was not supposed to be out of the yard off leash. I knew a good walk would be good for Mumsy so I visited 9 of my doggie friends with Mumsy following and talking to me all the while.
When I was ready I walked back to our place and was ready for the cookie she promised me if I would get back to the house…it’s not my fault the gate was left open and I really did enjoy my walk. Mumsy hugged me and gave me a cookie when I walked back through the gate and ran to the front door and waited for her…so I guess I am a good boy after all.
Another time when I got out I was really scared and so was Mumsy. She had to get in the car and look for me because I was a long way from home. She also had to get help to look for me. S That is why she was so proud of me for going back inside the gate and to the door this time. She told me she would be checking the gate much more closely before she lets me out from now on. I may never get to do that again and I know Mumsy is hoping so.
