Sunday after church I had every intention of walking Ruby. I’ll admit, even though I love walking her and she loves to be walked, I haven’t been the best at walking her. My foot has been acting up and in an effort to try to get it heal I’ve only been walking a couple times a week. We both miss it but for now, it’s the best I can do.
Well Sunday afternoon I hooked Ruby out on her cable so she could do her business. Then I got busy doing some cleaning. I lost track of her forgetting that I had let her outside. I just kept cleaning. Then the door bell rang. That was weird. We don’t get many unexpected visitors. Then I realized that Ruby wasn’t barking…Then I remembered that I had let Ruby outside. OH-oh. I needed to check on Ruby after I answered the door.
It turns out it was the neighbor kids. They had found Ruby and were returning her. She didn’t have a collar on. I thanked the boys and brought Ruby in.
Then I went outside and on her tie out cable was the “D” ring from her collar. Then out on the lawn was her collar. I checked the collar out and saw that it had broken.
Happily it was able to fixed.You can see where I put it back together and sewed it.
I felt bad that Ruby was running about town and frustrated with myself that I didn’t check up on her sooner.
For Ruby’s part…I am guessing she had the time of her life running around the block off leash doing as she pleased.
Needless to say, I ended up no walking her. I figured she got all the exercise she needed for one day.
