Since my sister ratted me out in the comments section of this post, I now feel the need to defend my actions!
FIRST OF ALL – let me just say that she made this sound much worse than what it actually was! And YES, I will admit that I did have to hobble out into the snow after the lunatic dog. But the fact is that I HAD to get him back. I couldn’t let him terrorize the neighborhood or knock down an elderly person or get hit by a car! I had to retrieve my dog. Plain and simple.
Here’s what happened:
You all know how crazy Willie is right? So, since I can’t take him out to potty in my current state, we have to rely on others to come over and take care of the dogs at night while Brian is at work. And when someone can’t be here and he needs to go out, we just open the door, let him out, and leave the door cracked so he can push it back open with his nose when he’s done with his business. And 99% of the time, this works. But every so often, something will catch his eye and he’ll be off.
The other night Katie let him out and unbeknownst to us there was another dog running loose. So he was off like a rocket after this dog. After about 5 minutes I noticed that he wasn’t coming back. So I put on my fancy bionic woman boot that the doctor gave me and walked out the back door. In nothing but my jammies and robe.
Way down at the other end of the street I see Willie and the other dog and a car trying to inch it’s way down the street without hitting my lunatic beast. Willie was literally “hopping” like a bunny rabbit on crack all around the car from driver’s side to the front to the passenger side and then back again. Over and over again he did this as the car tried to make it down the road without hitting him!
So, I hobbled as fast as I could down the road. In my robe. In my jammies. Hadn’t bathed for a day or two at least. After my miserable mutt. I had no choice. I couldn’t allow his assault to go on any longer.
And then I was chastised by my entire family over the course of the next 2 days. But what could I do, I ask you! I could not allow him to continue to terrorize the neighborhood all night!
Am I right or am I right?!
