Well my weekend started out with a good 'bang" with fire works and hot dogs. I had so much fun with my humans on Friday. We ate....a lot. Can you believe we even had s'mores!!! Something was missing in mine and I did a little sleuthing and found out that I didn't get any chocolate!!! What's up with that?? The fire works didn't seem to bother me at all. Mom thinks it was because I was eating too many s'mores to even notice the noise. I told her "Umm I take offence to that mom!!" You would think all I do is eat with a comment like that! Anyway.....
My girl left on Saturday to go "Up North" until the 11th. Yes this is bad because I lost my bed partner. What is a girl to do?? I am so lost without her. I am thinking that we are just going to kick dad out of the bed so I can sleep with mommy until sissy gets home. What do you all think...sound like a good idea???
Saturday we cut down our dead tree. Yep I escaped. I had been telling them I wanted out but they just didn't listen. So HA!!! Now let me explain to all the hoomans out there. I am a rare dale. I don't wander. Regardless my mommy still freaked out when daddy walked in the FRONT door with me.
Mommy here:: While I was watching a movie she escaped. She decided to go and frolic at the neighbors pond, chase birdies, play in the garden and greet daddy at the end of the drive. The neighbors let me know after the fact instead of CALLING me!!!!
So I am a tired girl to say the least! Now grandma if you read this don't freak out too. You are worse than my mommy!! I will have Mango go sit on YOU if you freak out. He is my back up these days. I also think he is a cutie!! Deetz I had read about all your adventures and it inspired me to at least try it. Thanks my friend for inspiration!!! Bolo I couldn't have done it without your weather report....keep them coming good buddy!!! Patches...your escape also inspired my escape, I watched that gate and took action. teehee
This is Willow reporting from the Compound warning all of you not to freak out your moms! Bye for now!!!

Hugs and tail wags

Bummer that your mom snuck the chocolate out of your s'more, Willow! Ours would have done the same thing and told us that it was poison to us! Where do they come up with these stories?!
We're glad your escape was a safe adventure! More grey hairs for your mom!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mango said...

Your neighbors were just so busy admiring you that they forgot to call your mom. Let me know if I need to give your granny a talkin to.


Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Ooooooo, you made the great escape??? I havent tried to escape yet. It's cool inside the house, and that's where my food, toys and human are.

Willow, I'm so human is making me wear the cone like all the time! Right now I'm laying on the couch next to her, destroying a toy, which is difficult to do with a cone around your head. So she took it off!

I have an idea...maybe you should escape again...come down to Arizona, I put up an airedale flag so you know where my house is, THEN!!!! My human will be forced to take you to New Mexico to see your Grandma! Then you can see your Mommy Apache, and I can see my Mommy Greta!

Glad you made it home Willow. I would have missed reading your blogs if you hadn't!

the 4 Bs said...

hi Willow, you're pretty lucky to get smores. we need to tell our mom to get some of those for us. who cares about a little chocolate?

that sounds like a runaway adventure that you had. we're glad you decided to come back. escaping seems to be the thing to do these days. hmmm... maybe we should give it a try. (mom: NOT!)

Hi Willow,

Before Cameo knew about Chocolate being the canine poison (I wish I knew who feeds them these stories,) I had the opportunity of puking after ingesting the bitter, tasteless stuff. I assure you that you haven't missed much (unless you are fond of puking!)

Another important point: You look very nice, and very different:)

You are welcome to add me to your friendlist:) and thanks. Do continue to visit - the flea story has progressed!

Hi Willow!
Sounds like you had a great weekend! I have never had s'mores before - they must be delicious!!
I am glad you didn't get into too much trouble running away. Stay safe!
Love Clover xo

We vote for kicking your dad out of the bed so you can sleep with your mom. Our mom feels left out...3 'dales and not one of us will sleep with her. She should probably consider herself lucky! You are a naughty girl, Willow! Did you not learn anything from Patches the escape artist? When we escape, it freaks our moms out...even if they don't know about it right away. After Patches' last escape, Mom realized that she had no idea how long she had been gone. Good thing...her heart attack could have started even sooner!

Deetz said...

Willow.....your so silly!
You went frolicking.....hehe
Just be really careful Willow, cuz where I live, there are no roads to get run over on, near my house and there are like acres inbetween my house and others....I would be very sad if something happened to you.

George the Pup said...

I'm like you Willow - a little odd. I like the occasional adventure, but usually my yard or a good walk is enough for me. I'm glad your safe and sound!

Moco said...

Be careful when you go wandering. We don't want anything to happen to you. Please do not eat chocolate. You wouldn't like the after effects. Keep that bed warm for when the girl comes back.

Peanut said...

Well don't go wandering to far then you will get lost for 8 days like flash did last year. Missing our girls is not fun is it. Mine still doesn't come back for like 3 weeks
