Naughty

Naughtiness is running rampant in my house this week. What's a mom to do? Remy is the latest to get into trouble. Matty had a friend over today and the boys went over to the nearby school to skateboard, etc. They had been gone for 30 minutes or so, when I opened the door to take out the garbage. Remy took off like a bat out of hell. Gone! I called to him, "Remy! Cookie! Remy! Treat!" Nothing. He didn't even look back.

He went to the school to find the boys. I was so mad at him. He has never gone off like this before. He finally came home with the boys a few minutes later. I have ignored him all afternoon (which he can't stand and frankly, neither can I). He is snuggling right behind me on the computer chair....so he must feel forgiven.

I can't stop thinking about what could have happened to him (hit by a car, stolen, bitten by another dog). Though I am so thankful he is home and in one piece.

Scary! I feel your fear. I've been there with Peanut. She zoomed around the neighborhood for about 20 minutes when we were visiting Patrick's sister.

I would die if Goliath bolted. I think he's so skiddish and nervous, he would bark at a motorhome and get nailed. Sometimes I think about putting a microchip in him. Have you ever thought about that for Remy?

Yes, Remy is microchipped. It was weird for me to have him microchipped (have you read Left Behind?). But I figured he didn't have a choice (so he'll go to Heaven) and it's for his safety if he ever does get out & away.
