Mischief Monday--the Incident

Saturday morning, SHE opened the car door for the dogs to get in, filled the water dish so it would be ready when we came home, opened the gate and headed off to the river, as usual.

As the Farmer's Markets were on, SHE stopped to purchase some Frangipane tarts and big German pretzels.

We were Very Near the river, when SHE noticed something was wrong.

One dog was missing!

Quickly, SHE made a U turn and headed all the way back home.

There was Bella sitting in the carport waiting.

After a few choice words, Bella was loaded into the car and we headed back to the river.

(Bella does not just get in the car, she has to make several circuits around it
 and then gets in when she's ready.)

Yesterday, we found out from the man next door, that Bella chased the car up the road when we left--flat out.
Had all the neighbours trying to round her up--to help her,
but Bella doesn't like people so wouldn't come to anyone
 or cooperate.
They finally gave up and Bella just went into the carport!

Bella, in a Daisy-like pose, sleeping off the incident.
SHE was not happy.


  1. Oh no! Poor Bella...and we guess poor mom who probably nearly had a heart attack! Glad all was well in the end.

  2. We are glad Bella came home. Bet it was a terrifying experience fur everyone.

  3. Thank goodness that Bella knew where to go to be safe. We don't even want to think of what could have happened. Now, Bella - no more of that stuff!!!

    Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  4. OMD Bella! SHE must have panic like hell...I can't side with you this time! But SHE must make sure to do a head count next time onwards.

  5. Whew Bella, I'm glad we were safe and sound. Sorry SHE ran off and left you. I hope you poured on the guilt trip.

    Aroo to you,

  6. Dat is NO WAY to treat you Bella. Didn't you even get any hugs and treats for having for all your trauma?

  7. HOLY CRAP!!! Bella, gurl, I can't believes SHE drove off without you??! I can just picture you runnin' after the car, black furs flappin' in the breeze, 'come back come back!!!' Oh my...Wells, it's a good things you knew to go back and waits til SHE figured out the terrible error of her ways!
    I sure hopes you gots some IScream after all that trauma!!
    And some snuggles...that deserves some MAJOR snuggles (even though you're probably like me and don't likes the snuggles, this is an exception!!!)

  8. Oh No Bella! Glad it all worked out OK
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Greta

  9. Oh Bella!!! You poor thing!! I hope SHE gave you a lot of treats even though you made circuits around the car and didn't get in!
    Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy

  10. Oh man.... I'm so glad that nothing bad happened to you, Bella. It was a very smart move going back to the carport!

  11. Good thing Bella isn't at RanchRunAMuck where she wouldn't be missed. They load 12 dogs into the car. 11, 12, what's the difference?

  12. Dear oh dear, how could SHE have been so negligent? Reminds Gail of the time she spent an hour running round the park searching for Hamish, only to find he had walked himself the quarter of a mile home and was waiting for her on the front doorstep!

  13. OMD OMD OMD BELLA..... WHAT was SHE thinking????????
    You were busy Checking the TIRE PRESSURE and such... and she just DROVE OFF AND LEFT YOU... ??????????? STUNNING! SHOCKING ! SCARY!!
    Your were doing YOUR JOB... and THAT is the THANKS YOU GET fur making SURE she didn't have a Flat or somethingy????? We think that SHE needs some time out fur this one. AND YOU should have some EXTRA TREATS.
    Thank Dawgness the neighbors were there to witness this horror. Who knows WHAT ... SHE might have tried to tell, otherwise. SHE is SO busted.
    Give "HER" some Hot TONGUE and Cold SHOULDER fur HER supper!!!

  14. BOL BOL Bella you crack us up. SH&&&&T happens. That is the kind of thing Wonder Boy would do. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  15. Oh my dog... I don't even know what to say....

  16. Oh Bella - that must have been very very awful watching your car drive away without you !!!!!! Poor thing ! At least you knew when to give up and get back home!! Did you get any of that pretzel ???? I hope SHE was very apologetic to you!! How much red wine did SHE have the night before .... does SHE need HELP counting to TWO??!! BOL! I crack myself up!!

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie xxx

  17. OMD, Bella! How could they ever forget you! We can't believe this happened - the nerve!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  18. Abandoned......omd.........poor Bella.

  19. SHE drove off and left you - and didn't even notice you were missing!!! Well this calls for sharing of those pretzels we think...heck no sharing - you should get the whole thing !

  20. Maybe Bella won't be so fussy about getting in the car now that she knows it will leave without her!

  21. Poor BELLA...... you will have Night SQUIRRELS over this fur like 87 weeks.
    Ernie is hiding BEHIND the Cliner Chair... shaking and shivering... beclaws he is TERRORIZED about what SHE might do to his ROXY.

  22. WHAt the hay Bella???? WESA so happy you are safe and we bet your moms heart started racing fast when she realized yousa were not in hers car!!! Next time bark real loud if she tries to leave wif out you again.....

  23. OMD! Bella, dear, we hope that you are not too traumatized! How could you have been left behind? We think that Frangipane Tarts and German Pretzels might make you feel better...just saying

    Edgar and his mum

  24. Oh Bella - how forgetful some peeps can be! Glad you're safe and hope your Mum has recovered from the shock of seeing you were missing. Take care - woofs and licks from Magic xx

  25. Boy Bella I just am so upset for you. How could SHE leave you behind. I hope you got lots of love and treats. Good thing you knew to go home and wait.

  26. Oh, poor Bella, getting left behind. So glad it turned out OK though!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  27. I know how serious this could have become but I am laughing at the thought of the car starting up and leaving without her. Teach Bella to fool around when the car door opens. Oh as the car took up speed Bella had to realize she wasn't catching it wonder what she was thinking. I would love to know.
    Sweet William The Scot

  30. Oh Bella please stay by Momma's side. We don't want you to get lose.

  31. Oh my dawg. What is happening with these peeps. Thank goodness their heads are screwed on or they would forget them as well! You were a smart girl to go home Bella. Your neighbours are good peeps too as they tried to help you. Hope you got lots of treats for being left behind butt, we think your mum would have had a scare so don't be too hard on her! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  32. Oh Bella!!! You poor girl!!! You must have been utterly distraught that SHE left you behind. We hope SHE made it up to you.
    Wally & Sammy

  33. Poor little Bella. Frightened out of her wits by being abandoned. Unable to run fast or far enough to catch the car. Then herded up by strangers, terrified. We think you need extra belly rubs and cuddles. And what was Roxy doing during this time? Was she telling yer Mom to stop quick get Bella? We are so glad everything turned out ok. Except maybe you will need therapy to work through your abandonment issues. Treat therapy comes to mind.
    Bonnie n Kenzie

  34. Oh, Bella! I'm so sorry your peep forgot you! You make sure SHE feels guilty for a long time and give you extra treats!

  35. Oh always happens to the good ones. My peep got left in the parking lot in church one time. It made her sad to hear you ran after the car and then she cheered when your pawsome peep came back to get her!

  36. That is a very scarey story. Our Mom is always worried about something like that happening and counts us over and over again.
