Yesterday afternoon, while I had the girls outside for some fresh air, Ducky disappeared on me. She had me scared half to death, the little stinker!!
I was cleaning up the yard of well, dog poop, talking to the girls as I walked around with the pooper scooper in one hand and the pusher blade in the other hand. I asked Ducky “where’s your poop, Ducky” as though I expected an answer in words. (I didn’t, but it probably would have looked that way to my neighbors.) When I didn’t get an answer – a tail wag or play bow – as I turned to look at her, I called to her. “Ducky, where are you?” She usually answers that question by running over to me with the Kong Bounzer in her mouth, ready to play keep away.
No answer. I walked around the yard again – finding and scooping up her poop along the way – calling her name and getting no response. I started getting truly concerned. I could not find her anywhere. I decided to put the pooper scooper back in its place on the side of the porch so I could grab my phone and call the hubby – he was inside watching a football game – to ask him to come out and help me find Ducky. As I put the pooper scooper in its place, I looked up and into the porch. And there was the little stinker standing at the screen door, waiting to be let back out in the yard. She had pushed the door open to let herself in but the door doesn’t open in both directions, so she couldn’t get out. 😅
After I found Ducky, Shadow was on her way from the very back end of the yard to the porch. As she was walking along the fence line, the neighbors’ chihuahua twins and their bulldog pup came running over to the fence yapping their fool heads off at her. Shadow totally ignored the twins – something I’ve been working on for quite a while – and stopped to say hello to Jupiter (the bulldog). As soon as she stopped though, he jumped up at the fence and fussed at her. She turned away from him – without acknowledging his tantrum as if thinking “up yours” – and continued walking toward the porch door. I patted her on the head, smiled, and said “good girl!” as I hooked the screen door. The girls and I came in the house and I told the hubby about Ducky scaring me half to death.
