Rio wakes me up this morning with Fido's equivalent of doing the peepee dance; pacing, whining and occasionally chewbacca sounds.
I begrudgingly get out of my warm bed, stumbling through the bedroom. No glasses and yawning non stop.
I blindly make it to the back door, after "dancing" with Rio in the hall.....he twists and turns and gallops in excitement that I'm finally getting up and tends to do that in the hallway where I can't get around him.
I finally locate the doorknob and let him outside, narrowly avoiding getting trampled by his monster feet or pummeled by his
He looks for that perfect spot to do his business and a look of sweet relief washes across his face. He sniffs a few more places and then I call him back inside.
Only, he doesn't listen.
He takes one look at me, gives me a look that is the equivalent of the middle finger, spins and bolts over the fence.
No shoes. No glasses. In pajamas b/c remember he woke me up. Kids are asleep and John isn't home.
Cussing, I grab car keys, find my shoes in the dark bedroom and grab the leash and storm out the door to the car, cussing and mumbling like a mad woman.
I get out to the car and see him across the street having a little powwow with the neighbors dog......probably bragging how he "stuck it" to me.
I throw the car in reverse and start backing up and as I'm about to turn and pull forward, here he comes galloping across the road to the house, with a stupid grin on his face "Yay! Iz getz out of da phence and deen iz getz tew goz fer a caw wide tew?!"
I put the car in park and meet him at the car door, he's dancing and prancing and I leash him as John is pulling up the driveway.
I walk Rio to the gate and in the house and then I have to go back to the car to move it out of Johns way.
I finally get back inside and start muttering to John about Rio's escape while he (Rio not John LOL) sits on the couch, looking smugly.
At this point, I've had so much "excitement", I can't go back to sleep but Rio's adventure must have worn him out, as he was sacked out on the couch for a good long while.
