Default The great basset chase


Well my sister came over to bring me soup today because I have bronchitis and a sinus infection. Hubert and Eeyore were sunning in the back yard and Toby was inside with me. As soon as I opened the door Toby slipped out right between my sisters legs. He took off running about as fast as his feet could take him. My sister is pregnant and couldn't really do much, so there was just me. I hope none of my neighbors saw my half dressed, hair a mess, can barely breathe self chasing a basset down the street. We live in a pretty rural area so my only goal was to get him before he made it to the woods, which are so dense I don't know if I would be able to follow him in. Thank goodness right before he got there he stopped to potty and I snatched him up before he could even finish. Almost gave me a heart attack. My sister had to get in her car and come pick us up before I was coughing so bad I didn't think I would make the walk back. I am definitely going to have to watch this guy when we have people over so there will be no repeats of today. Probably the scariest thing to date that has happened with my boys.

Slippery little devil....know how scary it was for you. Last week I "lost" Barney for 5 hours...thought he had gotten out of the yard. To make a long story short (search party, my beagle tracking thru woods, all agencies called and on alert)....he had slipped in a back room attached to the garage while I was putting stuff away because of high winds....never barked, whimpered, nothing....took me a couple of days to face everyone who helped. Toby, do not EVER do that again!!!!! Way too hard on your mama....

I had one like that. We called him the Houdini dog. If we didn't catch him at the first pee tree, we had to go get the car.

That's what my sister told him! Hubert has slipped out before but is always so excited to see company that he just trots out and right back in and Eeyore has never shown any interest in going outside. He always wants to be where his people are, but man, Toby took off and never even looked back.

Love the title. Sounds like a good book or movie.

Gandy's wild chases are limited to the hallway in our condo building. Although he got into a neighbor's unit once. Thankfully he hasn't figured out how stairs work yet or that would greatly increase his range.
