It was a Saturday afternoon and my girls were playing outside. My husband was mowing the lawn...kind of watching them, but, honestly, I would get better baby-sitting if I asked the neighbor's dog. With this in mind, I would periodically look out on my girls to make sure they were still ok.
During one of my checks, I looked out to find I couldn't see Sassy. I went running outside to find my little escapee. I first asked Big C who didn't know, "I think she is out front..." Really helpful. I went running and yelling when I heard the neighbors horn being honked. I thought, "I bet she is in their truck." Following my hunch, I went running to my wonderful neighbor's. By the garage stood my neighbor--my girl's like to call him grandpa. Grandpa greeted me and said that Sassy came over a few moments ago and knocked on the door. When he let her in, she went running asking for cookies. He gave her a cookie and then she demanded a tour of the basement. After the tour of the basement, she asked if she could see the garage. After they went into the garage, she decided that she needed "grandma". So, out of the reach of grandpa, she went running back into their house. As luck would have it, grandma was using the restroom. Sassy found her and began pounding on the door saying, "Grandma! Come outside! Come outside!" Finally, grandma came outside. Sassy instructed her to get into their vehicle which was where I found them.
Sassy was honking the horn and demonstrating her talent for road rage when I showed up. I turned to grandpa and said, "I was only gone for five minutes....this happened in five minutes?"
Grandpa said, "Yeah...she is a fast little devil!"
I apologized profusely and he said, "Don't worry about it...we enjoy having her over."
I told him repeatedly that he was too kind and at this time, grandma rolled down the window and said, "Sassy here is taking me to the zoo."
I responded with, "I think we are already there!"
Ever feel like you are living at the zoo? It is a daily occurence for me. :D
I liked these zoo signs....enjoy!
