This is what Smokes looks like after a 2 1/2 hour spree!

Two days ago, Smokes got on the loose! One of the kids opened the gate and he went flying out! Once he's gone, he's gone...I had to draw this map for you so you get the whole picture! He went behind my house, through the woods to the local farm stand. That is about 3 miles, we had a sighting there. Then he went all the way to the pizza parlor which is another 2-3 miles. Meanwhile, we got in two cars and looked for him for 2 1/2 hours. Finally we called the police and they had a sighting by the pizza parlor! Fortunately, the kids found him there and he was more than happy to get into the car for the ride home!
Now that Smokes had his exercise, this is where he took his nap! He was physically exhausted and I was mentally exhausted! I was just glad he didn't get hurt or cause an accident! I'm a total worry wart when this happens, that is why we all go in high gear to find him!
Have a great day!

Ah that Sibe instinct to RUNNNNNNN. That is why we have built Sibe Quentin here. Always very scary when it happens.

Sam said...

LOL, ditto to what Khyra said! That's just what they do!

Glad the boy is home safe and hope he stays there this time!!

Hi Deborah-

What an adventure you had! I'd been needing therapy for post-traumatic stress syndrome if Brutus ever took off! So glad that this tale had a happy ending, but it must have been quite the scare!

Thanks for playing!

A sibe will be a sibe will be a sibe - we just love to run, run, run. Mom is always worried we will try it one day, but we keep trying to let her know we are pretty content here as long as she keeps up with the ear scritchies, tummy rubs, and yummy treats. Glad Smokes was found - that must have been scary.

Woos, the OP Pack

So glad to hear Smokes made it home safe from his adventure. I would've been searching just like you if one of my guys got out too. He sure went a long way!

Oh my goodness! Smokes, dude, don't you know how you scared your mom???? Then again, maybe he went off looking for ice cream and pizza. Come to think of it, that sounds like a good reason to go out and about! Maybe you should reconsider his treats! Heeeeeeee! Seriously, I'm so glad he wasn't hurt. We've had one blogging pup hurt by an SUV this year (little Walter the Pug) and we don't need another!

Hey
Sure am glad that you found smokes. My mom knows exactly how you feel. Someone opened our gate and let me out last March, it was raining all night and I was out all night long.

Mom says It is impossible to find a black dog in the dark!! They looked until 3 Am and a neighbor found me about 7 AM and took me home. Lucky for me, Mom was so relieved that I had been found that I didnt get into trouble, and now there is a padlock on the gate!!
