ajillity81:  I would’ve FREAKED OUT! I have 2 beagles – LOVE ‘EM! One got away when I first got her, so scary. I’m really glad yours had a happy ending!! What about that other dog in the ‘hood??

Our dog escaped one morning and I lost my mind! In our last house our yard wasn’t fully fenced, so I’d take him out on his leash, and I wasn’t holding tight enough, and he took off after a squirrel. I don’t think I’ve ever been so scared, because our street was VERY busy.

I freaked out, screamed for DH and took off running. Found him snoozing in the neighbour’s garden ten minutes later. Not a care in the world.

Our indoor cat escaped and was missing for two days… This was only a month after adopting her, so we had no idea if she would come back to us. I plastered the neighborhood with posters and someone caught her, but those two days were the longest days of my life so far! 

I’m *very* happy to hear you found your buddy so fast! Our critters just get excited and don’t always realize they’re getting into trouble!

ajillity81:  OMG similar story that was panic inducing but turned out to be laughable…

I ALWAYS make sure to see where my cats are before I leave the house.  One morning during the dead of winter (ice, several feet of snow) I couldn’t find my kitten anywhere.  I looked for a solid 15 minutes before I called my FI in a panic.  He’d just left and I made him come back.  We got scared b/c we’d been in and out that morning, cleaning and warming up our cars.  I finally took to the streets while he scoured the house.  I went so far as to knock on someone’s door to ask if I could walk around their back yard b/c they’re house backs up ours.  She was nowhere to be found.

Then my FI called me and said to come home.  She appeared under the coffee table.  But she hadn’t been there the whole time.  It was a mystery.  It wasn’t until a couple months later we discovered there’s a tear underneath the couch that she likes to climb into!  We got that fixed ASAP!!  

I was 2 hours late for work, it was an intense morning!

ajillity81:  Glad you found him! So why did you DH abandon the car down the street and not tell you why?

aww, poor little guy.  Our dog “runs away” all the time, sometimes for 20-30 minutes at a time, but he always comes back.  It was annoying at first, but now we’re used to it.
