I heard the policeman say to daddy that they had “Puff” and that I have been terrorizing the farm animals plus I had tried to bite a police officer (hey, only my momma and daddy have my permission to touch me). They were waiting for animal control to come and pick me up and take me to the animal shelter.
YIKES! I’m going back to prison. That can’t happen because I have a big Fourth of July PARTY with all of my pals so I need to get back home. I began to get scared and around this time, all of the chickens and the turkey began to cluck and make a bunch of noise. The farmer and the policeman who was holding me walked over to the hen house and suddenly a crafty fox came springing out with a yummy chicken in its mouth, jumped the fence and took off down the road.
The farmer looked at me and told the policeman that apparently I had not been terrorizing the farm animals but was just a poor, little lost dog. As we watched the fox trot down the road with that tasty chicken in its mouth, animal control, daddy and momma showed up at the little farm. Momma was crying because she didn’t want to have me taken away and daddy, well let’s just say that daddy was not happy – okay?
Animal control told the police man to hand me back to momma after she lectured momma and daddy on being responsible pet owners and keeping me in a secure home and yard. We were allowed to leave because clearly it was a fox that had upset the farm animals, but still my daddy was very upset with me and was saying all kinds of stuff that I can’t repeat here.
Daddy drove our truck home which is only two short blocks from the little farm. I sat on mommas lap so I could look out the window to see if I could find Coco, but since it was dark I couldn’t see her anyplace, however I did spot my friend the goat still struggling under the fence trying to get back into his own yard – BOL, BOL.
When we got home Coco was sitting under the front porch swing panting hard but trying to be very still and quiet. She must have run all the way home after I got caught. When daddy opened the front door, Coco snuck in behind everyone then started jumping up at daddy welcoming him home. The little Princess didn’t get in trouble for anything, she really lucked out.
Me, I had to listen to daddy rant and rave about me being a “bad influence” and why couldn’t I be more like Coco who never does anything wrong, if only he knew – BOL, BOL.
Anyhow, daddy finally got it all out of his system and went back to bed – thank dog as he was yapping my ears off. Momma gave me a bath to “get the stink” off of me. Afterwards, Coco and I went to the sewing room and she asked me if we were still planning on going to the other farm where the cows are kept. I admit I was tempted, but having come very close to ending up back in prison I think we will have to pass on that idea this year.
Wow- what excitement! Glad you avoided the slammer! Is the goat still stuck under the fence? BOL- better luck next year.
That was close call Puff. You really lucked out that fox was there. Not So lucky for the chickhen.
Sounds like that fox saved the day!
PUFF AND COCO .. I AM ASSUMING THIS IS A MADE UP STORY ?? LOL !! IF NOT I AM SURE GLAD YOU AND COCO ARE HOME SAFE !
Yup, pure fiction Buttercupi. You know me, I can't even walk to the mailbox which is 1/2 a block away so it's impossible for me to go two blocks from home - BOL, BOL Had this been a true story Coco would have been the ring leader not me. Momma was just messing around writing the story - HeHeHe
I hope you all liked it as it did have a happy ending :-)
