    Thank goodness Henry's allright!

    I just had to post this for all those who might live in my area, and for everyone else who has a "fenced in yard" because I'm sure this is not limited to my area.

    There have been 6 dogs stolen from fenced in yards in my neighborhood in the last two weeks (locked, fenced in yards!). This is truly an incredibly frightening thing, as so many people do lull themselves into a false sense of security with a fenced yard. PLEASE...do not let your babes in the yard by themselves for a minute! I have witnessed my neighbors start walking their dogs in mass amounts due to this new fear in our neighborhood and I must say it surprised me at first, because of how complacent we can all become with fenced in yards. But now, nobody wants to take the risk of their dog being stolen.

    There are horrible people called bunchers who can get up to $400 a dog to sell them to research, and many more who can sell them to fighting dogs (for those of us who live in fighting dog cities).

    My dogs will never again be outside alone. Please everyone, take this precaution!

    whoa! sounds like you dodged a bullet on that one. that lady truly is an angel! I second the idea about writing your local paper. it's a nice gesture. and how often do people take the time do write about good things?

    I had a scare right after I first got Zoe. I was out on the patio with her and she shimmied under the railing and took off running. this happened a couple of times! I guess I thought if I was standing right there I could watch her, but it happened so fast. so I went to home depot and got a lil white picked fence and put it all along the railing.

    still, it's a good reminder for all of us.

    hugs you you and Henry!

    That is a good idea! I am going to work on something.

    Thank goodness Henry is safe. Say a prayer of thanks for that lady being there! Hug your puggies tight and try to relax.

    I received some excellent advice on this thread,

    1.) check my gate,
    always check my gate, I have been guilty of the same.

    2.) have a few treats in my purse, (I carry everything else,
    what is a bone or two)

    3.) keep a leash, collar and more treats in the car.


    thank you everyone.

    I am soooo glad to hear about HENRY>
    give the boy a hug from me as well.

    That's what Jeff & I were thinking too! Rudy Toot is the naughty one, so it surprised us that Henry was the escape artist! And we were surprised (and relieved) that Rudy didn't follow fim out. I could just see them two of them running blindly through the streets. I think when Rudy came in the house he was trying to tattle on Henry for getting out. I'm just so glad it worked out ok in the end. (Even if it did nearly give me a heart attack!)
