And Molly went walkabout!

Here she is laying in the sun, thinking about her weekend........

On the weekend, we went to dd and son-in-law's to lay hardwood floors and do other jobs around their new home.

As we were away 12 hours each day, we took Molly along with us.  Will say by the time we were on our way home on Sunday, Molly settled into the whole going in the car thing, and even laid down and fell asleep around 15 minutes from home!!!

One thing Molly loved about dd home is that it has a fenced back yard.  So she was allowed to go outside without being on leash.  She had a whale of a time and was busy sniffing around for ages.  So I let her out Sunday afternoon and was reading the paper.........by this time I had appointed myself "Supervisor!!"

Dh and son-in-law come in the front door saying have you lost something.......here dh was carrying Molly.  The story went like this:

Neighbour (2 doors down): Have you lost a dog?

Dh: No


Neighbour: we have found a Beagle cross called Molly......

Dh: Oh, that's our dog.

Dh and son-in-law wander over to the house, shouting for Molly to come.  Molly in turn completely ignored them!!!

Neighbour: is she pregnant?
Dh: no it's the pills she's on.  She has allergies, and that's why she has no hair on her tail........

Everyone now looking at her tail...........

As I said to dh, someone has to love Molly, despite her looking pregnant and having no hair on her tail and her completely ignoring you when you call her, and that someone is us!!!!

They said they had called the telephone number on her tags.  We always have her collar on other than during the night, as the tags rattle.  What nice neighbours they were.

Oh and before I forget, yes she decided to christen dd and son-in-laws house by peeing inside, flaming dog, thank goodness it was on the old floor and not on the new hardwood......  

Also, we got Molly around 3 years ago, so she must be around 8 years old now.

Forgot to say, the gate to the garden was not completely closed, so Molly nudged it open with her nose.  She does the same with the screen door at home...........she's an escape artist!!

What a great adventure Molly must have been having until she was "found out"...lol poor girl with her "mishap". I had just met a dog this past wknd who had Canine Cushings Disease something I never knew about. Not sure if you had read when I blogged it so here is the link, Gill:

Molly must have had a great adventure wondering around on her own, our beagle too seems to have a hearing problem if she gets a sniff of something new

I bet Molly enjoyed sniffing around dd's house. Beagle loves sniffing.

Molly must keep you on your toes...she certainly keeps me amused! I'm with you on the job of Supervisor, it's a dirty job but somebody has to do it!

She must have had fun and am glad this has a happy ending. Nice neighbors. When we lived in California we had a pet turtle whose home was in our garden. She dug under the fence one day unknown to us and a neighbor brought her back home. Son who was around ten at the time had the bright idea of writing our address on the back of her shell in permanent marker. It was starting to wear off but there was enough there for her to be returned to us.

At least Molly was found before you realized she was gone and got upset. Sounds like you had a busy weekend.
