The Fugitive

I just read through this long boring thing. Don't torture yourself here it is quick:
Penny ran away and took another dog with her and now she's back. Why didn't I just write that to begin with? I don't know but I'm not erasing the long version. Sure it's too long and boring even for me to read, so?


Lean and I are dancin all round the living room with the leopard when da da da dah
the doorbell rings. It's not Avon or those cute Jehovah's Witness girls who used to visit once a month (I know some people may not like being visited by JW's but these girls were delightful, I loved their visits). It's Mrs. "Something I Have since Forgotten". I open the door to a sweet lady, neatly turned out who looks to be in her late 60's early 70's. I look a fright with sticking out all over the place hair and grungy house shoes. She peers around me and sees the hoard which has grown with the addition of Christmas decorations strewn about. The Horror!!

Mrs., "Your dog jumped over the fence and ran off with my dog. Very agile your dog. And I can't find them anywhere."
Me, "the black one?" (duh) Mrs., "yes, the other dog is still back there"
Me, "the dalmatian?" (double duh,).
Apparently she was out walking her dog, Penny saw them, jumped the fence, then ran away with her dog. Her dog wasn't on a leash so she can't sue me ,can she.
I told her Penny usually comes home in a couple hours not to worry.


Well she is worried, very worried. Sends her hub out on a bike yelling for the dog (this guy is old, I don't know how he powers that thing with his old man skinny legs, ), she herself rides all over the neighborhood screaming for her dog. She stops back by about every 20 minutes or so.
Finally Drew is home and takes her under his wing, consoles her, helps her look. He's sweet like that.
Penny is back in the fence this a.m. I stop by their house on the way back from dropping off Lean. Their dog's back, Mrs. had to sleep in from the trauma of the whole thing. well this thing surely went nowhere and is pointless, quit whining, worse things have happened

When I first read the title of your post, I thought you were going to tell us something like you were now a fugitive, what with your recent crime spree and all. But then I read about the dog dilemma. That little old lady is really me, as I scour the neighborhood, yelling and whistling to my cats to come home every day!
No Mr. CDD today? It's Wednesday and I was looking for that bird's pic to be up again! :=)

I forgot it was Wednesday....drat
I really was just no good with that lady for which I feel extreme guilt. Drew is always great in those situations.
Penny is practically in a coma out there recovering from her all night fun fest

Bee said...

jean knee, how are you doing?
Are you okay? How are you holding up?
Did you pick the outfit you're gonna wear so you look nice as they haul you off to jail? You know, for aiding and abetting (spelling?).

Oh how I wish we were neighbors!

Bee said...

And what leopard???

Jean Knee said...

Bee, I told you not to read that boring thing.
If you are a good listener at school you get to take the class leopard (stuffed animal) home with you.
that leopard had some sweeeet dance moves

You should punish her misdeeds by feeding her fetid arugula for a week. That'll learn her!

Jean Knee said...

know any place I can get some arugula cheap?

Penny was recently up and out of her coma. I'm scared to look outside in case she is gone again. We should have the electric fence back by tonight

Maybe Mr. CCD could go look for the lady's dog. You could follow him around the neighborhood and take pictures.

I feel bad for the old lady too, but it's kind of weird to see it from her perspective. I'm soooo not a dog person. I'd be like, "Doesn't your dog know where it lives?"

Penny on fetid arugula = lots of fun dog squeeze to clean up for the next week and a half

No Cool Story said...

I blame the guy with the fake arm.

No Cool Story said...

"Very agile your dog"

Compliments go a long way in my book.

No Cool Story said...

I don't know why but readin "fetid auruguuguluga" makes me gaggy.

:P

Jean Knee said...

fetid arugula is out, the chunky dog squeezes are bad enough

You'd think that over the 3000 or so years that people have been breeding dogs, they'd have worried not so much about looking good in dog shows, but breeding some intelligence into the things...

When Helena was little, I was in a neighbouring estate with her in her pushchair, and a puppy started following me. It followed me almost home, then saw someone else with a pushchair and went off with them. 2 days later a disraught woman was wandering the streets looking for it. I didn't own up. I don't know why people get so upset - it's not as if there's a shortage, you can always get another dog...

Jean Knee said...

I think Penny's problem is she's too smart. she knows it's more fun "out there" but she also knows where the food is

No Cool Story said...

chunky dog...

+_+

Jean Knee said...

Oh NCS that smiley thing made me feel bubbly, wait it might have been gas,... no bubbly

Guess what NCS Brian is an Al Gore Hater, he just dissed him on his blog---don't let him get away with that kind of behavior

Jean Knee said...

I think he kicked a puppy that was following him too

Brian o Vretanos said...

Stop trying to stir things, Jean Knee! All I said was that Al is above running for the President of the World.

Jean Knee said...

don't try to delete the horrible things you said about him (the republican thing is just between you and me, okay)

Jean Knee said...

NCS--Brian does not recycle!!!!

and don't read his post it is pornographic he says something about a porn star ans himself (I don't know correct grammar but you see what I'm sayin here)

are you out shopping?

Jessica said...

very tramatic! Your home sounds a bit like mine. Except I don't have pets, just kids.

Brian o Vretanos said...

Jean Knee:

Rubbish:

Stop telling people about my recycling habits or lack of them. How did you know, anyway?

Porn Fiend:

People should be glad that you're selflessly willing to expose yourself to filth on the internet so they don't have to.

Tori :) said...

"this guy is old, I don't know how he powers that thing with his old man skinny legs" made me LOL!!

Jean Knee said...

I hope you didn't just suggest I would "expose myself" because I wear double layers

Bee said...

How do you guys go from dogs on the lam to pornographic presidential environmentalist elections?
Now that's talent!

No Cool Story said...

No one shall speak any ILL of my Father Al!! Al 4-ever!
4-ever!!1!! eleventy!

No Cool Story said...

Brian: When you don't recycle you make baby Al Gore cry.

:(

No Cool Story said...

Father Gore doesn't need to run for office anymore.

he has made it all the way to Apostle.
And that's the way I HEART him.

No Cool Story said...

Pornographic presidential environmentalist elections are a none issue to me.

As long as Al is free to save baby seals and puppies (maybe even the one that Brian kicked).

No Cool Story said...

0_o

Jean Knee said...

what she said! he's asleep now and probably won't read this but yeah NCS put it straight!

compulsive writer said...

"Very agile your dog. "

I don't know why but that cracked me up.

Glad all is well again.

Melissa said...

Our dogs were never "that agile" but they were pretty good at digging under a fence...
Good times :)
