Yesterday was really crazy. I was at home with the cats while mom and dad were at work. It's been really, really cold here lately. Mom and dad says it's never been this cold before.
Anyway, I was just sleeping on the sofa when I got woken up by a weird sound. I went to check it out and found gallons and gallons of water pouring out of the laundry room. It was starting to come into our den and I was really nervous.
Mom and dad finally got home and were just as upset as I was. They let me outside to do my business and then mom made a couple of phone calls.
A few minutes later a strange man came to the house and made the water stop. I was kind of nervous about him, because he was a stranger. Mom and dad reassured me he was ok.
Now, this is where it gets really good.
Dad went with the man to the alley and left the back gate open. WOW!!! I saw my chance and went for it. I ran out that gate, across the street and into the park so quick dad couldn't stop me.
He called me, but I didn't listen. I had so much fun being off the leash in the park. There was a man with his dog and I went over to say hi. I ran around and around and around. I guess I was being a little obnoxious to the other dog. You know, kind of bragging that I wasn't on a leash and he was.
But it wasn't long before the fun wore off, because they left and it was really cold. So I went back home. I think dad was surprised I came back. Hey - I'm not that dumb. I know how good I have it. I'm not about to just up and try to find "greener pastures", so to speak. I've been on the street before and it's no fun.
Well, the man that made the water stop finally left and mom and dad calmed down. I came inside and got some yummy supper and laid on my bed.
That was a day I will never forget.
Hugs and licks,
