'Tis More Blessed Giveaway and Runaway Dog
Every Friday in December, as part of the 'Tis More Blessed Giveaway, hosted by Milo James Fowler, I am giving away free copies of both of my books (That Mama is a Grouch, and That Baby Woke Me Up, AGAIN) to one lucky winner. Even if you already have copies, feel free to participate, because they could make great gifts for anyone you know. Just leave a comment below for a chance to win. These are hard copies of my book, and I am willing to mail them anywhere in the world. Be sure to visit Milo to find out who else is participating and have a chance to win their books as well.
Now for the story:
Schultz, our three-year-old German Shepherd, has generally been pretty good. When he was a puppy, he was in trouble just about every day, and had numerous time-outs in his crate. Well, his "good streak" ended yesterday. My husband let him outside for a potty break. He even stood outside waiting, because we still don't have a fence for our yard (city permits take forever to get down here in the south!). After Schultz did his business, he started meandering around, sniffing.
"Schultz, come," my husband said.
Schultz didn't listen. He wandered into the woods.
"Uh oh," my husband said. "Come!"
Schultz still didn't listen. Apparently he was on the trail of another deer.
"Schultz!" my husband bellowed.
And what do you think Schultz did next? He ran! Away from my husband to God only knows where.
It took thirty minutes for that beast to find his way back home. And boy, was he in trouble. His Daddy yelled at him and stuck him in his crate for the rest of the day! I don't think he'll be doing that again, any time soon. I hope.
