Well, after being outside ALL afternoon today cuz Mom was home, we all came inside for supper. After we ate Mom put us all outside again for a few minutes.
Well, in those 7 or 8 minutes that silly Darrell dug his way out of the back fence again. He claims it was because it was raining and the ground was soft??? Of course, I followed him again...I needed to keep an eye on him and let Mom know where he went.
We went up the hill next door and decided to stop at the vets. Because two of them were outside taking a break, Darrell chose those two to visit. They IMMEDIATELY grabbed him and put him in a car! Then, they tried to catch ME. I have NEVER been there except once when I needed a baby tooth pulled. It HURT and I will never forget they did that to me, so there was NO WAY I was gonna let them catch me!!!
One of them drove Darrell home and the other one chased ME home. I ran out back and disappeared. They found Mom and told her I was out loose somewhere. She was all relaxed and calm... she told them she knew EXACTLY where I was and I was safe.
So, Mom took Darrell into the house and then came down to the lab pen to find me. SURPRISE, I wasn't IN the lab pen. Slightly worried now, Mom walked all around the house and still didn't find me.
So, she decided to bring all the house dogs inside and bring Toto out to help find me. She opened the door to let everyone in and...IN I CAME!!!
Mom wasn't surprised to find I had climbed back up the six foot stone wall and gone back thru Darrell's hole in the fence and I was right where I was supposed to be!!
I am SUCH a good boy.

Friday morning that dumb Darrell broke the fence right off the wall and escaped. It was really dumb cuz it was the very first day Mom left him outside with all of us. Fortunately, he spied one of the daycare dogs and followed her right into the kennel, silly dog!
Well, Mom fixed the fence after work on Saturday and was SURE he couldn't escape again. Sunday morning, she put us all out and was enjoying her morning coffee before she went to work.
She glanced out the window and spied ME, her former escape artist extraordinaire, racing by the kitchen window. Of course, she headed right outside, in her bare feet, no less, and ran down in the back yard to catch us. Yes, she assumed Darrell had led me astray! Not seeing either one of us, she headed home to get her jacket and shoes and discovered Darrell rounding the end of the front porch. She called him, he knew he was found so he came instantly.
After getting bundled up, Mom returned outside to find me. She called and called and called. Since Darrell was over by the road she went that way, assuming I would have followed him. Nope, she didn't find me, so back to the lower yard she went. '
This time she decided to use her head and follow the tracks thru the frost on the lawn. Those led her right over to the bottom gate on the lab pen. She glanced inside the pen and, low and behold, there I was playing with some toys I found in there. The minute I saw her I came racing over and jumped into her arms!
Mom said she should have thought about it before she panicked... every time I used to escape from that lab pen I just stayed right outside the fence and came right back in when she called me. I guess it only made sense that when I found myself outside, I would head right back into the security of MY pen. I am such a good boy!!!!

Today was MY day to go to work with Momsie and get my Christmas photo done. I was soo excited! I went along with Crystal and Harvey. Both of them had to get haircuts but I was already trimmed and clean so I just sat around until finally, Tonya and Mom decided it was time.
Mom hangs a background drape on the wall behind the grooming table, then drapes it over the table. They tape it to the wall with super duct tape. Usually works great!
Well, Tonya forgot I am TRAINED to be a show poodle and I know grooming tables... I know grooming tables from the top to the bottom!!! I can spend HOURS just hanging out on a grooming table.
Anyway, Tonya put me on the table, plunked a Christmas hat upon my head and forgot to tell me to stay!!! I was wiggling all over the place and suddenly, I backed up to the edge of the table. Of course, I stepped off onto the drape, which was NOT on the table and, next thing I knew, I was lying on the floor, COMPLETELY rolled up in that silly drape!!!
Apparently, as I stepped back, it pulled it off the wall (STUPID duct tape didn't stick!!!) and, as it fell, it rolled me right up in the middle of it!!!
Poor Tonya was shocked... she couldn't find me anywhere and assumed I had jumped off the table. Mom saw the whole thing, but she was laughing so hard she couldn't tell Tonya where I was! Nice Mom, huh???
Finally, Tonya picked up the end of the drape and OUT I ROLLED!!!!
After that experience, I just sat in one spot while they dressed me and photographed me as much as they wanted to.... I was NOT MOVIN'!!!!!
