We went to the river yesterday to see if the 'new' rivers were gone.
They were--just flattened grass and mud where they had been.
It was a gorgeous day.
We were getting back in the car.  Roxy and Bella were
in, Dui was just about to be lifted in, when friends
arrived.  Dui was so excited, he was allowed to go
greet them.
After a few minutes of saying hello (the peeps keeping the proper distance) Dui was put and the car and we came home.
Gate was closed, and Dui's bicarb dunk was ready...…...
SHE reached in to grab Dui when WT**##
Bella must have got back out of the car.
Dui got a quick dunk
And SHE took off with all sorts of worse-case scenarios 
racing through her mind!
It was hoped that Bella would follow the others and NOT try to chase the car!
Happy to report that Bella did go back  to retrace our walk, and was with the others...tired from another walk around the track.
However, it'll be a long time the jokes about HER inability to count to three will stop!!!!


  1. Oh thank goodness Bella is safe!

  2. Whew, that was very good fortune. We are glad Bella is safe. Mom wishes she had to worry about counting to three:(

  3. Bella you sneaky little girl. We're glad she was safe with your friends.

  4. BOL. Good thing dat my Mom only has to count to 1. I don't think she could handle any more paws. I must admit dat I am a pawful all by myself.

  5. Oh boy, Mom knows that scary feeling. She was in the kitchen one day and glanced out the window to see Bailey and Norma Jean walking up the street all by themselves. Someone hadn't latched the gate and they were going on an adventure. She raced out the door in bare feet and called them. Norma Jean came right away but Bailey really wanted that adventure. The promise of a cookie finally convinced her to come home.

  6. Oooohhhh nooooooo....How long did it take before your heart started beating again? I'm glad it all ended well, and your girl didn't have to hitchhike home! :-)

  7. Whew! That was SO scary. You're a good girl, Bella. We know that other dogs might not have been as good as you!

  8. HOLY COW PATTIES! Gurl, you shouldn't do that to HER! Butts, good on you for goin' with your furiends for another lap around the track.
    Glads it all ended well. I am sure SHE needed a margarita after all that!

  9. OMW!!!! I was so scared while we drove back to find Bella. I am rolling on the floor at counting to three.. so glad Bella is safe and was with friends. dogs are so much PHUN

  10. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh dear ones..I think you 3 Three pups did I say 3....might need to teach HER to count to three 3!!
    Dui I know had that been you SHE would have need to make a trip way into the Outback where you might be chasing Roos
    Thank goodness all 3 are home.
    Hugs cecilia

  11. Holy Moly! So glad Bella is safe...this totally sounds like something our Mama might do!

  12. Gosh Bella this is the second time that I can remember this happened. Once you were left home and neighbors saw you chasing HER car. This time you were left at the river. Good thing you had friends there or you would have been all alone, poor girl.
