A Ridiculous Dog Lady Moment

I made the choice to let Hailey off leash last evening in the yard. She had been off leash Tuesday and Wednesday with no problems. While we were out, she got the whiff of groundhog and off she was into the woods, which are on our property.

I called, and called, but she was very busy hunting groundhog and had turned her ears off.

I was not dressed appropriately so I came in and put my boots and snow pants on and went out to fetch her.

The issue with retrieving her was that the snow is still so deep. As I tried to walk toward her I was sinking in the snow above my knees. I realized I was never going to get to her. While she was doing a great job and was still in the yard, I figured eventually she might leave it.  My problem solving brain kicked in and it occurred to me - the dogs don't sink as much, maybe if I crawl I can get her.

So I started crawling across the yard (like the distance of a football field). It worked, I didn't sink, I made better time and realizing how ridiculous this must have looked, I laughed and I laughed.

I reached Hailey, got a hold of her tie out and we crawled back. It wasn't as easy with her. Especially when we went by the spot I think the groundhog is living in.

Where was Phod during all of this? Just pupping around. He was following me and he stayed with us.

I am glad that no one saw me, but at the same time would have loved a picture or video to see how ridiculous I looked!

  12. Peeps do such crazy thing for us pups...would have loved to see the crawling. When Bella runs off, there's no catching her. She feels secure if she sees HER, so she keeps running. SHE has to hide behind stuff so Bella can't see HER. Crazy.

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy
