Who's a Doofus? Not Me!!

Just Harry here. Yep, me, the Canine Klein guy!!

Just a few moments ago -- 8:47 pm EST - Dogdad took me and my brother out for our bedtime run. We went to the golf course as we always do -- but we barely had time to do our business, when young idiots from a few houses down set off two firecrackers. They were only about 100 yards -- about a block --away from us and it was scary, scary loud.

I freaked out and jumped so hard that I jerked my leash out of my Dad's hand and ran as fast as I could. Of course Dad was startled. When he realized what had happened, he called me and called me and tried to catch up.

But -- no need to worry -- I ran across the golf course as fast as I could,my leash dangling after me, turned down our street, and ran right into our driveway and sat by the front door.

When Dogdad told Mom what happened, she almost fainted.

But nope, I ain't no doofus. I is truly a smart terrier who knows where home is and where it's safe.

Just Harry

(Mom told me what a good boy I was, and gave me lots and lots of cuddles.)

We read this very carefully, over and over. We hope we absorbed it. And we hope we learned and will remember if (when) something like this happens to us. It's Moma's worst nightmare ... one of us getting loose while scared.

You've given us (including Moma) a wee bit of confidence. Not enough to test it, but enough to rest a bit better tonight.

(Who said you're a doofus, anyway?)

Interesting that you go to the golf course to 'do your business'. I understand that humans too do a lot of business on the golf course!
Cheers! H.
PS Firecrackers should be banned.

Harry,
Good job going to the safe place away from those fireworks. We are still hearing booms at night too even though the holiday was totally a week ago.

Slobbers,
Mango

Molly and Taffy said...

Oh well done for taking yourself to the safest place you know.

Oh Just Harry, that was just the smartest thing to do. We would have been scared too and your namesake, Just Martha, can freak out too and get her collar right off!!
You were just so clever to get straight back home - probably quicker without Dad in a situation like that.
We are full of admiration and you are certainly no doofus - we are still a bit unsure about the canine klein underpants right enough!
love and kisses

Joe Stains said...

Good job buddy, you are definitely a smart one! Tanner would have been halfway to Minnesota!!

Eric said...

Petey said...

Ah, I wish you'd stopped to deposit a load in those boys' yard to tell'em what you really thought of those firecrackers! The nerve! Smart move though....

See if Jakie still has a wee dram to soothe your nerves.

Your pal,

Petey
