Well I had the scare of my life yesterday. On of my workers left the gate open to the back yard. I went to let the dogs out before I went to bed got up put my night gown on donít know why because I was going right back to bed! Went in the bathroom and something didnít feel right. Went to the back door went outside and realized the gate was open on my god *#**@@###** I went out to the front and sitting like 2 perfect angels was Freya @ Milo thank god I rushed them in to the house and headed on down the street towards the screaming and people running in my bare feet and with only my nightgown on. Could see people running in the distance and shadows of Bryce I was screaming for him and I didnít want to lose sight of him. He was going towards a busy street and all I could think of was he was going to get hit by a car. Bryce was barking at everything he could see that was how I could figure out where he was I finally caught up to him and I think he thought we were playing a game I got down on the ground and called him me in my night gown in the rain with no shoes on! He came running over to me all happy about his little adventure I grabbed his collar and headed back towards the house. Well every tree he went by he wanted to smell and I couldnít be mean to him since he did come to me. Not only could he have been run over he could have been shot at or dog napped! I thank god he is safe and the gate will always get locked now. My feet are still recovering and my knees feel like jello! Frey and Milo are older then Bryce and Bryce has not been neutered yet so I guess the time has come to make that decision. Marina ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I'm so glad you and your bunch are all OK.  I know we don't live that far from each other and the weather last night was aweful!

Give your Angels a hug from me and a special hug to the naughty runaway!!

tell me about it i felt like i was in a movie! Maybe in a hurricane movie with a big dog lurking in the shadows making his mother run on what felt like glass and i m a BIG girl running down the street with my night gown clinging to me all i can wish for is that no one saw me! When i went out to the car the next am i did'nt get any strange looks maybe they were being nice to me?  ;D ;D ;) ;) :D :D :D :D

That's horrible! How scary and embarassing, not that you cared at the time but geez, he's a bad boy for making you go through that. Thank God he came though.

OMG I'm so glad that he came to you. I have envisioned myself running after one of my dogs in my robe :o

My gate was left opened once. After that I put a chain with a lock on it

I forgot to mention one of the ways i could also trace Bryce was he had a big bell on his collar they are made by silverfoot they are to let the grizzly bears know that you are coming. A friend of mine gave it to me when he was a pup i thought it kinda funny but now i will keep it on him at all times!For some of us , bears are a part of everyday life. They become most dangerous when taken by surprise. Let them know you're in the area... A must if you travel through bear country.Marina

OMG thank goodness you got him home safe and sound! :o That bell looks GREAT. We are out in the wilderness and hat would be good for Atlas to wear! I got him one of those blinker things for in the dark but noise would be good too!

I can totally relate with the night gown attire- like what does it matter? your baby is in danger... right? So glad to hear that you caught him before anything happened. I love the bell idea, I may have to look into getting some of those.

LOL. Trust me, run around in your nightie enough times chasing the dogs and the nieghbors simply cease to notice anymore. Of course you don't get many invites to backyard barbeques anymore either.

Stella, you cracked me up!  I was sitting here reading this with my heart racing imagining how I'd feel if one of my babies were running toward a busy street like that, so thanks so much for the big laugh!  Thank goodness Bryce is ok and his mommy is a hero, just in a nighty...inste ad of a Superman cape!   ;D
