Houdini Hound

We are the proud owners of 6 year old beagle named Boscoe. Most of the time he is a great dog: loving, cuddly and LOVES to eat anything (and I do mean anything)! I was on a cleaning spree yesterday and had the dogs out back in the fenced in yard to roam and bask in the sun so they didn't get under foot as they have a habit of doing! They usually alert me when they are ready to come inside for a drink, a nap and to get warm and yesterday was no different, except that when Zoe came in, Boscoe did not and he was no where to be found! Our yard is fenced in for crying out loud and all the gates are locked so no one could just let them out! So, I put Zoe in the house, load the baby in the car and went in search of my missing four-legged son, Boscoe. I searched all the alleys because he loves to get into the trash. I searched the two main roads in either direction for fear that he had been hit by a car. I even cruised all the one way streets and the park with no sign of the d**** dog, who I was cussing under my breath because Sadie is a sponge and will repeat EVERY word I say: the good, the bad and the ugly! I gave up and went home! When I arrive the neighbor, who is raking leaves, says she saw him sauntering up the driveway and realized that I was out looking for him so she followed him up the driveway thinking that she would put him on our enclosed front porch. When she got to where he should be, which was a dead end with the driveway the only way out, he was not there!! At this point, I could hear his tell "tail" bark but did not know where he was! I walked up the driveway with Sadie and the neighbor, called his name and there he was on the back porch! Remember I said earlier that the backyard is fenced in? Well, the Houdini hound managed to escape somehow which just amazes me because he is a pleasantly plump 35 pounds and cannot fit his body into too many tight spots. More amazing is the fact that he remembered the way home and the way back into the yard!! I know Zoe would have gone with him but she is a pit bull and her head is way too big to fit in the tight spot he found or I would have been searching for both of them! At least I found him or, should I say, he found me!!

What trouble that naughty doggie caused. Did he get put in time out? LOL. I'm glad you found him.
