    DefaultThank goodness I know the labrador's favorite game....

    Chase! Because both my labrador AND my golden retriever got out of the house on Saturday. (Yes, please call 911...I did have a heart attack.)

    Totally my fault. I was so distracted by some new purchases we made for the home that I was busy carrying things in and out of the house. Well, I didn't latch a door well and, after being cooped up in the kitchen while hubby and I put furniture together, they were itching to get out.

    Luckily...they just wanted to be near me. I was busy storing some boxes in the garage when I looked down and *gasp* there they both were with me in the driveway! I hollered for hubby and started running for the front door. I used the emergency recall word and Brooklyn came running in the house. Yay! But Remy...he just wanted to play...and I was worried it was going to be in traffic. Hubby looked at me and said "Run!" and I did...right into the house and through the living room and into the kitchen and before I got to the cookie jar...there he was! Whew! Tail waggin..."can we play chase again?!"

    "Yes honey...but in the fenced in back yard please."

    *Faint*
    Melissa, Remy & Brooklyn

    Thank heaven that they stayed close by! How scary. I'm glad everything worked out well.

    Misha and Homer did the same last week. I went to San Diego for a couple days (business trip) and left them with a good friend and vet. The day he brought them back they were the usual crazy "Oh I missed you so much... and this guy did not take us out for a walk" dogs. I took them to the yard for a quick pee, the we went to the front of the house again, where my friend was waiting at the door.

    They ran out like nothing and scared a poor girl with a little Yorkie when she suddenly saw these two crazy unleashed dogs running to say hi... fortunately nothing happened. They came back right after I yelled at them

    Glad Brooklyn and Remy are safe. Think mommy needed a good stiff drink after waking up from her faint.

    That's why I can't trust anybody else with my two !

    My friend's father ( he has had LAbs for years ) was helping her move house, and left the front door open - it leads onto a main road and I'm talking 6 feet.

    OK they didn't get out but if they had......

    Lucky your two aren't travellers - Phew....lesson learned.
