Good Dog, Minnie!

Yesterday Hu-mom and I were working in the back yard.  We were raking leaves and hauling them to the curb for pick up. At some point, hu-mom heard first and then saw a man out walking a big dog and calling out "Lucky, lucky...." .  Hu-mom figured out pretty quick that "Lucky" must have gotten out of his yard.  We didn't know Lucky.  We didn't talk to the man as he as about 3/4 of a block away. So being a good neighbor, I kept my eyes open and watched for the lost dog. 

At some point later, we had moved over to the opposite side of the yard. Hu-mom said she saw me take off like a streak to the other side of the yard barking my head off.  She looked over and saw a Jack Russell Terrier checking me out from the other side of the fence.  We figured it must be Lucky!  Hu-mom approached Lucky.  She is always hesitant to meet new doggies that were lost.  After about a minute, Lucky came over to her and she was able to check him out and pick him up.  He didn't have on tags.  She was in a quandary as to how to find out where he lived or find his man but they must live nearby. She didn't want to put him in our backyard since she was not sure how Lucky and I would interact. And Mack was inside and she had the same worry.  Hu-mom walked from the backyard to the front yard.  And guess what!!!!!!  At the corner intersection, hu-mom saw the man in his car this time, driving slowly and calling out.  She waved her arms at him and lifted up the dog.  He drove right over. He was sooo happy to find him.  It turns out his name is Rocky, LOL, and he got out of his fenced in yard.  He lives around the corner from us.  We had never met him, just heard him bark as we past his house on our walks.  The man was really nice and kept thanking us!  

Hu-mom was very proud of me for getting her attention and helping Rocky find his man. Of course, I received a special treat!!!!!!!!!

It's raining all day today, so Mack and I will spend a day napping on the couch.  

Love, Minnie :)

Hi Minnie and Mack,
Sad to hear its raining but its nice to snuggle up on the couch, its funny because Mum says Puggys are the only dogs that run the opposite way when their owners call "Walkies" Ha,Ha!
Good job helping your Hu-Mom find Rocky, I'm glad that you got a special treat for finding him, its funny that you thought his name was lucky because he was lucky - lucky you found him! Good job guys! Love and Phugs Frank xxxxxxxxx

That is really cool! You get extra jewels in your crown for that one. Dad found a lost neighbor's pup (they were getting married that day of all things!) and Mom was never more proud. Extra treats and sugars for you!

Hooray for Lucky! I mean, Rocky! He should change his name. And hooray for your Mom for helping him find his Dad!!
