We were outside late last night helping Mom dig up the garden with Grandma supervising. All of a sudden out of the corner of my eye I saw something white over by the front gate. Well of course I was there in no time barking up a storm with Priscilla right next to me. Mom just thought we were barking at Pappy next door and looked up and said to be quiet and get away from the gate. You should have seen the look of surprise and horror on Mom's face when she realized whatever we were barking at was inside the gate with us.
Well Mom has trouble with her knees and she's a senior now so she doesn't move to fast, but she sure did last night.
By the time she got halfway there she realized it was a small Chihuahua. I had never seen one before. Priscilla does not tolerate dogs and Mom always keeps her away from other dogs. So Mom tried her best to try to get us away from this little guy. I confess I did not help. I was just non stop barking. Mom finally was able to pick up Priscilla and put her in the house and run back to me and the "white creature". By the time she got ahold of wiggly me, the creature had slipped back under the wooden gate. Man was he skinny. Mom quickly put me down, went out the gate to see if she could find the little dog and take him home.
She saw the dog but it was skitterish but she followed it two doors down and found it had already gotten home safe and sound. She talked to his Mom and told her about the adventure.
Mom's hoping that this scared the dog enough so he will not do that again and that his parents will keep a better eye on him.
It was fun, and Mom was so proud of Priscilla not attacking the dog. I think because it was so small she thought it was a puppy and she seems to like puppies.

Wow! What an adventure! Too bad you didn't make friends with that little guy, maybe next time...
Bless your mama for helping the little dog. Hope he was skinny because he was elderly and not because they weren't treating him right.
I would be on team Priscilla. I personally don't like other dogs near me, but in my yard!!!! You would have to chain me up, because the dog would feel the wrath of FRITZ!!!!!
