Mischief Monday - Precious Runs Away

If you read the blog regularly you will be familiar with Precious, Phod's favourite ball.

Phod with Precious

On Sunday, after being away for 4 days, I decided to take Lee for a special walk through the woods while Man and Phod played with Precious. Lee and I were having an ok walk (she was very excited and not the best walker) when Lee paused. I assumed it was because there was a deer or other wildlife, but then I heard the familiar jingle of Phod's collar. It seemed Phod had another idea, to come and find Hailey and I. I am sure he thought I was lost. He had a big smile as he came running up the path to see us. I didn't have a leash for him, but he was a good boy and stayed with me as we walked back. When we got back to the house and Man says "does he have his ball?"  and I say "no".

What happened was Phod had been playing ball. The Man told him to go poop as it appeared he had to and Phod understood this as "Find Lady". He had taken off with the ball, but arrived with me without it. So somewhere in the bush is Precious. After a walk on the path, we are sure it is gone forever. My guess is that Phod took a short cut through the bush to find us and didn't stay on the path so unless he goes back into the bush and finds it, it is gone.

Here is how Phod feels about having to learn to like one of the 10+ other balls we have:

"I don't want a new ball, I want Precious."

  27. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! Handsome Phod, I am very sorry for your loss. This is a very sad day.

    Pee Ess I understand! "Poop" and "Find Lady" sound just the same when the people say them, don't they?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Poor Phod! Poor Precious! I do hope you find it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh no, poor Phod! We lose toys when we take them away from home sometimes too (mostly when swimming though). Luckily our crew isn't too attached to one ball over another though. Maybe Precious will turn up!
