If your dogs are anything like mine, they follow your every move. Mine follow me around the house into every nook and cranny. Recently, I’ve had a few mishaps that I can look back and laugh at, but felt bad at the time.
It started with Buddy. I was getting ready to go somewhere with my usual routine…in and out of the bathroom and closet. After figuring out my attire, I shut the closet door as always. A short time later I heard a strange but familiar sound. I had shut Buddy in the closet and he was letting me know by thumping the door stopper with his paw. Smart boy…it worked!! You would have thought he was gone for a week after seeing the excitement of his brothers. If you are a dog owner, you know what I mean.
Not long after, I shut Coby in the same closet, but this time I noticed he was gone. The closet was one of the first places I checked. Lol
Yesterday, I had another incident with poor Buddy! I had taken the boys outside to potty, then brought them back inside through the sunroom. I closed the sliding door because it was hot and humid outside. I went back into the office to finish my work when Coby started ringing the bell to go outside again. I thought to myself, “Crazy dog, we just came in!” With that in mind I went about my business, but Coby wouldn’t give up on the bell ringing. After a few minutes, I went into the living room to see Coby sitting at the sliding door with Buddy sitting on the other side. Poor Buddy had been shut in the sunroom and couldn’t tell me. His brother was looking out for him! Again, the three boys were so excited to be reunited!!!
I think there is a lesson to be learned here. I need to pay better attention to the whereabouts of my babies! Always making sure all three are safe and sound in the house! I know worse things could happen, but I hope they don’t!
Love you, my babies!!
