For All Dog Lovers............

I have to tell you what our almost 11 year-old Cairn Terrier, Miki, did yesterday. First of all, let me tell you that he HATES it when we leave and he has to stay home alone. That said, we left around 4:30 P.M. yesterday to watch Elizabeth play volleyball. We didn't arrive home until shortly after 7 P.M. Usually, when we drive in the driveway, he begins to bark, then meets us at the back door. We drove in the garage, no barking, we opened the back door, no barking and no Miki, I walked into every room of the house, calling his name, and no Miki. Twelve years ago, my husband and I went to a movie, and when we left, our two boys and our future DIL were still home. I thought that our dog, Max, was in the garage with the boys, and my husband thought that he was in the house with me. Unknown to both of us, he had hid in the tall Canna Flowers and watched us leave. Then the boys and Karissa left for Madison assuming that he was in the house. When we arrived home from the movie, he was nowhere to be found. We called and called and searched all over. Then I thought that maybe he was with the boys. I noticed a message on the telephone, and it was from our oldest son. He said that a BIL of his best friend had hit Max in front of our house with his truck. He stopped immediately, but Max was dead. He looked on his collar, saw our last name, and called Jason. Last night, when we couldn't find Miki, it was like it was happening all over again. My heart was racing and I could barely breathe. I was even checking in closets, when I found him in the front hall coat closet, hiding behind the vacuum cleaner. The only thing I could think of was that he jumped over the small safe to a space behind the vacuum and couldn't jump back out. But he never barked or whimpered or did anything when we called him. I don't know what that was all about, but I was so relieved when I found him alive and well, that the last thing on my mind was to question the how or why. I told this story to Nola and she suggested that he should be put in "TIME OUT" for scaring us!!!!!
