Mom was totally surprised when, after my big tree scare, I immediately snuck right back outside the very next day! I will admit, I haven't climbed up anymore trees lately, but I am sure enjoying the great outdoors.
I am not like Smokey, though. I have a way to get BACK INSIDE all by myself. You see, I discovered that those lab puppies have a in/out door in their inside pen and if I just push on it, it magically opens and I can run right out, climb over their chain link pen, walk along the top of the other fence over to the chicken house and slide down the chicken house and freedom is MINE!
Usually, as soon as I get out there Smokey comes along and we head off to the big field to explore. I have caught a few mousies for Mom...I usually leave them (or at least parts of them, MOL) right in front of the porch door. She can't miss them when she lets the dogs out, unless of course, the dogs eat them first!!!
Every night Mom comes outside and sits on the porch and watches the dogs and the chickens. Well, Smokey and I have decided she can watch us, too! We usually go out with the chickens and chase them around a bit. They aren't scared of us at all, so it isn't too much fun to chase them, but it gives Mom something to watch!
Paisley is still a bit wimpy about the great outdoors. One day she went out the front door and sat on the front porch but Mom caught her chasing the gray kitty that lives out there and made her come back inside.
This weekend Mom and Julia were cleaning the Summer kitchen so they left the door to the dog yard open. Paisley did manage to go out that open door and run around a bit, but she didn't stay out long like me and Smokey.
Mom HATES that we go outside, but there isn't too much she can do. We promised we would stay on the back side of the house and so far we have.
And, I promised I wouldn't climb ANY TREES!!!!
