Bad Mommy! Bad!

Do I look perturbed? Well I am.

Mom nearly got me run over this weekend!!!

We were out in the yard (without my leash on), and I was taking my morning pee when I saw a big furry dog across the street. He looked like such a nice dog, I just had to go over and say hello. Well, wouldn't you know a huge SUV was speeding down the road just at that moment. Thankfully, I just narrowly missed the wheels.

Anyway, Mom was screaming and carrying on and clutching her chest. Of course, I knew I would be ok. But she kept hugging me and petting me the rest of the day. Geez, lighten up. Everything turned out ok, didn't it?

Though, I will say, I think I'm going to hang close to Dad these next few days. Just in case.

Poor little Oscar! That must have been so traumatic. I'm glad he made it! I'd certainly miss reading his blog :)

I don't know if he was traumatized by it. He seemed perfectly fine right after. It was me that was totally traumatized!!

oh my gosh! so glad he's ok. :)
those little guys see a dog (big or small) and they have to make their presence known... dexter would have run after another dog, a kid on a bike, someone skateboarding or rollerblading, a leaf blowing, you name it!

I know - it's really scary. I need to figure out how to train Oscar to come when I call him. (He's not very good with that.) Any recommendations?

Hey Christina! Do you have the Invisible Fence product, or something similar in your yard? I don't know all the details, but it seems like a good product to train Oscarman to stay within certain boundaries. Might be worth looking into! Poor you!! Glad he's ok!! ;)

Courtney - we don't have an invisible fence. Would be a nice thing to have, but I think they're kind of expensive, and I would feel bad about shocking him. Plus, I hear that some dogs run right through them if they see something they really really want to chase. I wouldn't be surprised if the Oscarman pulled that one on us!
