Yes, it finally happened! I escaped and got to go roam outside ALL BY MYSELF! Finally, the ability to explore on my own, in the lovely river valley named for my brave namesake, Henry Hudson.
Mommy went to visit Auntie Tori and Auntie Beth this weekend. Daddy was doing yardwork and didn't know the latch on the screen door in back was broken. Upon testing it, I realized I could GET OUT!
Gromit was somewhere else...no time to get him. Besides, he's not an explorer, he's an inventor and defender-of-the-house-against-birdies. I went out! Oh sweet freedom! The open air on my face! The grass before me! The chipmunks romping around unaware of the danger lurking in ME!
I roamed the yard and chased the chipmunks and even descended the forbidden hill into the woods. Oh, the sights and sounds and smells! I revelled in them. I know how Henry Hudson felt setting sail for the New World! But always a wise explorer I kept track of where I was and did not get lost.
I heard daddy tell mommy later what happened...he wanted to give us treats and only Gromit came running. He couldn't find me! Then he realized the back door was open and came out in the yard to look for me.
I heard him calling and I knew he would be worried about me. So I came back. And then demanded lots of cuddling and attention as a reward for being such a good boy and coming when called. But I know the truth...exploring is nice. Home is better.
