Is it really spring??

Wow, 3 amazing days in a row. It's so beautiful out, my Jenna Dog has felt the need to"escape" all 3 days, romping happily thru the neighbors woods with me running behind waiving peanut butter laden cookies, sometimes in my PJ's, trying to entice her back (she's suicidal you know. runs right in front of snow plows and fed ex trucks). I'm sure the neighbors are quite entertained. This morning I was at Anna Rees house making lemon curd (she makes the best) when I got the phone call. Phil, "YOUR dog's out." Me: "why is she MY dog when she's running amok, and YOUR dog when she's snuggled on the couch?" Phil: "Better get her. Mail lady is on the way" (Jenna will follow the mail truck for blocks trying to stop it. After all, it has the dog bones inside). So off I ran, cookies in my PJ pockets, sliding in oversized bedroom slippers, always 50 feet behind her. I finally gave up the pointless exercise, and went back to Anna's, leaving a cookie crumb trail right up to her kitchen door. BINGO. 30 seconds after I went inside, Jenna was at the door, I assume looking for the source of the cookie crumbs. It's so satisfying knowing I am at least occasionally smarter than an animal that has a brain the size of a WALNUT.


  1. I'm sure Jenna enjoyed your game of chase! She is such a cutie - I'll bet its hard to stay mad at her for long.

  2. So I take it you caught her the a couple weeks ago when she got out. Glad she didn't get killed dodging cars on the grade. Maybe a taller fence would keep her inside?
