Millie Goes For A Run

What does it feel like to loose a child? I have no idea and I sure hope I never find out! Millie decided on Tuesday she would conquer the fence and jump it (not completely a new thing-she has jumped it before). So on the very cold Tuesday off she went over into the crazy world of Provo. You would have to know Millie to know she is a pretty friendly dog. Upon returning from home to find her gone it was not a fun feeling that is for sure. After asking around if anyone has seen a little brown puppy there were many comments that sure enough people had seen her out and about. The girl on the corner said some guy found her and said he was going to take her home and try to locate her owners. After hanging posters and searching for hours for her there was no luck. Due to the cold evening I decided to head home and wait. I mean there is only so much you can do. Finally as I decided I would do one last drive through on the streets of Provo. With the windows down and my high pitches whistle toy I roamed the streets looking for her. I was a few streets down from the house, stopped in my car and yelling out the car like a retard looking for my dog. Out of nowhere Millie is on the side of the car jumping up and down. Only after a few seconds I realized she had dragged this poor women around the block because she could hear me but was tied to an Internet cable. It was such a relief to finally have her home. With a bloody stomach and tuckered out eyes she didn't move the rest of the night. So although I may not have any idea what it feels like to loose my child I sure know that Millie is one spoiled rotten puppy and it was miserable to loose her. One quick trip to Petco and I returned home with a personal Millie tag with address and phone number.

oh, every time we've moved lexi has taken off a few times within the first few weeks. scares the hell out of me. i'm mostly scare that someone will just want to keep her cause she's so freakin' rad! that's when no microchip or id collar will help! so maybe you should train millie to snarl at strangers (never bite)!!!

p.s. microchips are like $20 at the Humane Society if she doesn't already have one.

I am so glad you found Millie! It was a lot of fun seeing you last night. So I just barely joined the facebook thing, but am still figuring out how to work it. Hope to see you again soon!
