Bailey's Tails From The Bark Side

Bad morning at my house

This morning was a bad morning. My Aunt Tracy's dog Bonnie is staying with us while she is away. Mom let both of us out in the yard and she was doing some things in the kitchen before going to work.

The phone rang and it was Aunt Tracy, who is out of town. She asked Mom "Do you have my dog?" That made mom run to look out in the yard.

Mom told Aunt Tracy that Bonnie got out of our yard (somehow the gate was wide open). Aunt Tracy told her that someone had called her and said that they had Bonnie. One of the high school kids found her by the Junior High, checked her tag, called my aunt Tracy. She called my mom who then realized she was not in the yard. The Junior High is across the street behind the neighbors who live on that side.

Mom told her to call the guy back and find out where they were and she would run and get Bonnie. Tracy told the kid where to bring Bonnie back to. Apparently he did not have a hold of Bonnie because Bonnie came running down the street with the boy behind her and zipped into the house. I being the good girl that I am never left the yard.

Mom was so relieved to get Bonnie back. She told Aunt Tracy to call the boy back (but he was in school by then) so she can give him some kind of reward. He really was a good kid to take the time to go over to a loose dog and check the tags and call the owner on his cellphone.

We are so lucky that this story has a happy ending!

Hi, Bailey -

We are glad that Bonnie made it home safely and that you stayed in the yard.

Do you know how the gate got opened?

Love -

We think Bonnie has been trying to squeeze under the gate and when she did that she lifted it and it popped open. Later in the day my dad was in the yard with us and she heard someone next door and tried to get under the gate. We have something in front of it now.
