Dog hunting interrupted my lawn mowing.....

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

well, not hunting really, but a dog was running lose and the owner was trying to catch it. I stopped my mower, and tried to call the dog. But I think he sensed I am not a dog person.

My neighbor came out, brought her dog to try to lure the runaway over, but no dice. The neighbor followed the runaway down the street. I could see people coming out of houses bringing their dogs. Gotta love a neighborhood that comes to help. Bulldogs were the winner. They helped entice the runaway to capture.

So, all my neighbors were outside now. Time to visit...not mow the lawn. Lots to talk about. It took a while for us to realize my neighbor's smoke detector was going off. When she came out to help with the dog, she thought she turned the stove off, but didn't. Little ironic that we had no trouble recognizing a silent dog in need...but ignored an alarm...... (no fire, smoke only...all is well)

    You know reading blog stories are SO much better than anything on TV these days. This would make a cute situation comedy episode. I liked the happy ending, dog got to go home after a romp, and smoke but no fire!

Nah, it was the cotton balls and tinfoil hat.
