Just Harry's Four-Minute Fugue

Mom and Dogdad went out for dinner to get over the shock of Just Harry's scarey adventure. While they were gone, JH told me where he had gone. He chased the UPS truck around the corner and down the street.

Here is a map from Google. It's a little blurry, but you can see the townhouses and part of the golf course. It must be an older photo because some of the roofs still have blue tarps from Hurricane Wilma.
Anyway, we outlined a red path from our townhouse around the corner and down Gatehouse Road, and then back. This is a path he often takes with Mom or Dogdad, so he knew it. When he got to the stop sign at the next corner, though, after chasing the UPS truck, he told me he knew he was exhausted and had better turn around for home.

Mom said this must have been a new UPS driver because the one who usually delivers our packages knows better than to knock at the door and would never have driven away seeing one of us guys loose on the street.

Oh boy, that is terrible! A real scare!!

What was Just Harry going to do with that UPS truck if he caugt it? There probably aren't any bones in there.

Maybe he is waiting for a package. Does he order things online when everybody's in bed, or over the phone when nobody's home? This might need some looking into.

pee ess Tell you mom to look for a large envelop from my mom some day next week. Be sure Just Harry doesn't get it first.

Are you still going to the pawty, or are you grounded FOR LIFE! J1's previous dog Watson once ran away from the dog sitter's house and gatecrashed a dinner pawty, ate a ton of catfood and waited patiently to be found. I think J1 aged about 20 years that night. J x

Did that UPS man have a bone cookie on his truck? That could have been the reason! Ours does carry them! It wasn't worth it JH! Your mom will buy you all you want, trust me!
I hope we see you at the pawty!

Love ya lots,
Maggie

JH, you can't scare everyone so much. Essex did something similar several years ago. She scared Dad something fierce. Pawlese don't do that again.

Oh that's so scary! My ma ape would have had a heart attack! Hope everyone is ok, safe and secure at home for a LOOOOONG time! But I do understand wanting to give the UPS man the what for. I always give him a good talking to when he shows up, though my ma ape says he only brings GOOD STUFF. Still...

Well, now we know he is paying attention on walkies, and thank dogness for that. Last time Teka went walkabout, she was gone overnight and it wasn't until early afternoon that the man who found her called E.Beth. Guess he figured out she wasn't a keeper, but I know that JH is such a cute and darling wire that someone might be tempted to keep him!

Glad you guys got to go to the party. I'd have been Ground-ed-ed!

Balboa & Mommy said...

Again, I am just so glad Just Harry is a smart boy and came right back home.

Back in my younger days, I would take the occasional tour of the neighborhood, too, but I soon learned I had a pretty good deal at home with my moms. Glad you figured that out quickly, JH, and that you made it home safe. Good to have met you and Jake. Hope to see you in cyberspace again soon!

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Oh Man, JH...that is soooooooo cool. Mumsie's last WFT chased a mean, very mean UPS guy. Sarge jumped in the truck with him and mean UPS guy KNEW he was there and started to drive off. Mumsie was screaming to make him let her grab old Sarge. She finally stood square in front of the truck and would move till he had surrended the wiry hostage. She's much older now because of it...
Thankful barks,
Scruffy

Sounds like your regular UPS driver is a great guy (and former dog catcher???)!

Just what IS Just Harry's interest in the PUS truck? I'd like to know.

Goober love,
Stanley
