Monday Mischief: It Was a Good Run--Woof! Woof!

I charged out the door!
Boy, have I a story to tell you this week!  The setting:  Saturday, a beautiful day and had a nice walk at the park.  Karen at the computer.  Gerard reading and me in the living room.

Ding, Ding.  (doorbell rang, a kid selling stuff)

Naturally I barked loud to let my dad know someone was at the door.  He went to answer the door and I saw my chance when the inside vestibule door popped back open.

I ran like a shot out the door!  It was fun, I felt so free!  I ran across the street and down the sidewalk very fast!

I heard Gerard yelling for me to come, but I couldn't stop,  He ran after me but I was too fast for him,  Ha, ha.  I was having too much fun!

As soon as Karen heard Gerard yell, she jumped up, grabbed my leash, told the kid we didn't want to buy anything and got in the car to join in the chase! 

See what excitement I created!
This is the house where Gerard caught up to me at because the lady held me.

Lots of the neighbors came out to watch us.  One called for me to come to her so I did.  She pet me up and we waited for Gerard to arrive.  Then Karen got there in the car with the leash while Gerard was still trying to call her on his cell phone.   

I thought it was very fun, but Karen and Gerard did not.  They both said it was very bad and I should never, ever go outside without my leash again.  Oh well.  It was fun while it lasted, even if it was only about one minute of run time.  Woof!  Woof!

Karen was in such a rush that she forgot to bring the camera along to get pictures for this post--a video of me in action running would have been nice.  These pics were all taken the next day.  If you enlarge the last one, you might be able to see the red circle around my house (it's not really in the tree like the label says).

Share some mischief you got into at the Monday Mischief blog hop and Aww Mondays.

Bad Dog!! You could get hurt, Abbie, so don't do that anymore. :(

Sparkle said...

Wow, Abbie - that sounds like something a KITTY would do! Well, some kitties - none of us have ever done it, but we've heard of cats who do. Anyhow, I'm glad you got back home safe and uninjured!

SlimDoggy said...

Wow, that's some good mischief Abbie - be careful running in the street though - those stupid cars sometimes don't stay out of the way.

Talking-Dogs said...

Wow, you're one lucky dog! That mischief could have meant big trouble!

BeadedTail said...

Well, it was fun while it lasted Abby! You probably shouldn't do that again because of how it scares your parents though. That's not very nice. We're glad you didn't get hurt either.

Sandee said...

Awwww...You are so fun Abby. I linked you to Awww Mondays because this post qualifies.

I would not have thought this was very funny either.

Have a woof woof day. My best to your relieved parents. :)

This was so cute, and so very true... a run for freedom is always fun, even if it means just a short break with wind in your fur! It's nice to know that Mom and Dad are paying attention and will come looking for you quickly! I have done runs like this to catch escaping cats too... they always seem surprised that I want them to stop! ;-)

wow Abby glad you didn't get out in the traffic! Have a safe week!

That is some crazy mischief. At least you did not get too far!

Abby Dabby Doo said...

Gerard says it wasn't my fault. It was his fault for not making sure the inside door was closed all the way before opening the outside one so don't blame me. They got the doorknob fixed (again) so I probably won't be running out again any time soon.

Thanks, Sandy, for linking me up with Aww Mondays--I didn't know if people would say "Awww" to this or not.

Flea said...

Oh what FUN! though, it was really a bad thing to do. One of our chickens ran away this weekend and had to be chased all over creation, including across a main road. Scary stuff. But hilarious if you're watching the chase! said...

Haha Abbie - That was some good mischief!! I'm glad you were safe though and got back to your tree house ok! :)

Just be careful buddy,

Your pal Snoopy :)
