    DefaultMolly just nearly gave me a heart attack :(

    The UPS man just dropped by to deliver my much awaited package from Victoria's Secret (that's beside the point though), and to of course hand Abby and Molly their treats (he delivers things for my dad's work almost daily). He was petting Molly and all of a sudden she darted out the door and down the street. I'm pretty sure the neighbors cat caught her eye as he was running down the street too :

    I called her and she wouldn't come. She just kept running, and running. Of course I didn't want to chase after her making her think I wanted to play this "game" with her so I slowly walked behind. I told her to sit which she did and then ran back towards the house (thinking she would follow) wrrrrrrrrong! She just kept going. She got about 12 houses down and I called out her name, she turned to look at me and started to run back towards me. I praised her like mad "gooood come Molly, good come!!", grabbed her collar and we walked back up to the house. I'm so glad she didn't get too far. Our street has a busy street at either end (top and bottom) if she made it out there she surely would have darted into traffic.

    All the while Abby is running right at my side figuring that it's time for an off leash romp at the park (at least she listens). Silly goose.

    In the house and in the yard Molly has a 99.9% recall. Outside those two areas it's about 2 times out of 10. We are constantly working on recall with a long line attached at the park. I guess we need to step that up a bit.

    That would scare me spitless too! At least she wasn't that hard to get a hold of. : If they only knew what that did to our hearts when they become deaf and stupid. ;D ;D

    Glad you got her back okay. Next time try enticing her back with a favorite word like "cookie" or "car ride". Hopefully there will never be a next time though

    I usually do...and that doesn't always get her.

    Car ride probably would though, or beach/swimming I'll have to keep that in the back of my mind.

    She's so lucky I love her.

    As Molly was running down the street I was running down our front steps and I looked up at the sky and said "God make her stop running!!!". My mom said it was like I expected some divine intervention and that Molly was going to freeze in position.
