Excitement on GrannyMountain
Ben here...just wanted to tell you we had some excitement on GrannyMountain Thursday night. It was breezy and nice, so we were setting out on the top deck enjoying the beautiful stars. In the distance I saw the headlights of our neighbors Gator. They hurriedly came down the road, an odd thing since we live in a pretty remote area. We went out to see what was wrong and their 17 year old dog Chuckie had got out of the door and was missing. He's deaf and blind now so he is strictly a house dog, like me. But somehow the worst had happened and at 10pm he was lost in the woods. There were neighbors everywhere with flashlights, in golf carts or ATV's searching for Chuckie. It didn't take long to find him, but I'm thinking he was a pretty lucky pup. I kind of shiver to think what would happen to me if I got lost and couldn't find my way home. I take for granted my leopard bed, my placemat with the bowls that are always full and just being able to close my eyes and not be afraid that something might eat me. I kinda like the smell of bacon frying, my favorite place on the couch (whenever Mom gets up) and treats for no reason. So, all of you pups out there thinking that going for a night time stroll might be fun, think again....
