Monday Mischief - Basset Hound Races and The Great Escape!

Boy, I am late getting going this Monday morning.  We had such a great weekend with temperatures reaching 24C.   It seems everybody was out and about enjoying the nice weather and we had lots of company over the weekend.  I can see that Fred is getting older as he was so well behaved and not so wound up around our company. Whew!
Saturday morning we got the hounds out first thing in the morning for a walk because as the day heats up, Gloria tends to peter out very quickly.  When we got home they had their "basset hound races".







With the dogs all wore out, we had a tree limb to take down in the front yard so we put a gate across part of the driveway so the hounds could lay there in the sun but also see us. (or surprise, surprise, Fred might whine!)
Things were going along quickly and the dogs were being so good.  We were sawing up the tree limb when my husband looked over to the neighbors and said "Hey look, a basset!"  We're always so excited when we see another basset hound around town.  Well, we were pretty excited because I looked back and could only see Gloria, at the same time my husband realized that was our basset Fred!  My heart sank and my husband went running to get him.  Fred ran off back into the neighbors yard and thankfully my husband got a hold of him.  We were so lucky that the neighbors dog had left his giant bone outside, because if it wasn't for that we would probably still be looking for Fred right now.  We later found that Fred had squeezed in beside the shed on the driveway and found a hole in the hedges to get through to the neighbors.
We were very lucky this time and we will be making darn sure that never happens again because not only would Fred be lost but so would I!

Yes, Fred had quite an adventure and I sure hope he enjoyed it, 'cause it will be his last!!

  5. Fred, trust us it is not safe outside your yard without your peeps. Please stay in your yard and don't give your Momma a heart attack. I am with you, I freak when the bassets get out. We think that their microchips should include a GPS system for easy tracking, they could make an I-phone app or something to help us out. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

  9. There is never a dull moment with furbabies! Thank goodness Fred stayed in the neighbor's back yard!!! You would be lost without him.
    Did you make the afghan that is behind Fred in the last photo? It is beautiful.

  11. So glad you got Fred back! Isn't it scary when they go where they aren't supposed to? He sure likes his mischief doesn't he? lol.

  12. Oh Fred - no more escapades like that one - you really scared your peeps. Was that giant bone too much of a temptation? Woofs & licks from Magic xx

  13. Oh those Bassets. Some dogs just love to run off; others wouldn't even if you begged them. I'm afraid Fozzie is very much the former variety, so we have to be vigilant too!

  14. Fred, dude what were you thinking? The grass is not greener on the other side, trust me. Don't scare your mpm like that again.

  16. Fred...Don't let your nose get the best of you. You got a pretty sweet deal right where you are. Glad you didn't get too far.

  17. I can picture the scene of you and uour husband so thrilled to see another basset, and then realizing who this is. Sorry, althought I would have been scared too, the images make me laugh.
    Fred.s last picture too!

  19. Oh, dear, I laughed, too...for some reason, I didn't think Freddie would get too far but I don't know his nose nor hie penchant for free roam exploring.
    BTW, there IS an iPhone app for dog GPS as well as GPS collars; I've been thinking of one for Shiloh, the free roam Beagle.

  20. Fred, how could you make your Momma worry like that? Silly pup, no more crazy adventures for you.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Fred, that was pretty mischievous. Losing a dog sure gives you that horrid sinking feeling.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Talk about mischief!! Fred you shouldn't worry mama like that! We know it's fun when you are off leash looking around, but you have to be careful. A cute basset like yourself could get stolen or hurt.

  23. Fred you really do have terribly attractive paws! Deccy x

  24. Remember....treats....worried mommy....not a good mix....most of the time you don't get the treats....catch my drift....

  25. That sure woulda scared us too! Glad Fred is OK!

  26. Oh my goodness, Basset Momma!! I am so glad that Fred was spotted by your husband, and all ended well!! ;-D
    I know how you feel.... If Rose were to run away, we would both be lost, too!! ;-}
    In fact, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE Beagle/German Shepherd cross, Rose has escaped.... Let's see.... Three times in the nearly 1 1/2 years that she's been mine!! Yep. Out of our backyard, through an open front door, and across the garage doors!! But other than that, Rose is not much of a wanderer!! And we are very careful as to avoid any chases/heartache!! ;op

  29. Oh my gosh, Freddie,after a walk and all that running around in the back yard, how did you have the energy to try and frighten your Mom like that! Not getting enough attention, eh?

  30. we love seeing you race around after your walk. Does your ears hit you in the face?

  31. Whew! Glad you caught Fred. What a sinker!

    So did Fred let Gloria be in the lead or is she just faster?

    ReplyDelete
  32. That is always a fear I have of one of our dogs escaping or slipping out an open door. We have open land with coyotes but cars are not any better or worse. Thank goodness you noticed!

    Those photos were funny of them racing...a little bucking it looked like from the horsewoman in me....

  35. Hey Fred, Hey Gloria, Jet here. Dude, you scared your Mom and Dad to the bone. Although, the first thought... look another basset was just a smidge funny. Glad you are ok and safe. I'm a runner myself, so, we must remember to take it easy on our humans, they worry so...

  36. This looks like tons of fun! With Spring approaching, I love how everyone has so many fun outdoor pictures in the sun! The playtime sounds fun and tiring. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh Fred my friend. You just crack me up....

    ReplyDelete
  38. "Oh look! The neighbors have a basset... that totally looks like Freddie"

    Freddie's up to a lot of mischief, isn't he?

    Are male bassets more work than female ones?

    Huggies and Cheese,

  40. Fred are you keeping them on paws as to where you are? Silence around here means somebody is doing something they shouldn't!
    Love the Bassett races.

  42. Freddie, the grass may look greener on the other side, but is only seems that way. Remember, home is where the heart is.

  43. So glad you got Fred back. It's happened a few times with Kelly and it is very scary, especially because we live near a road with a lot of traffic. Sounds like Fred won't be investigating any time soon!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hahaha Don't dogs always find the one tiny, hidden place they can squeeze through?! No matter what precautions you take, they'll find it! I'm so glad you got him back! :)

  45. We are certain Fred was thinking "Freedom! Now what can I go sniff out!" But we are glad you caught him before something bad happened. Meowm remembers all to well when Junior got out one time. She says it was the worst 3 hours of her life.

  46. Oh Fred! Do be careful mate! The humans do get so worried when we pups go on adventures. Love the Basset-zoomies pictures! Play bows,

  47. That scared me just reading it! The rest of the weekend sounded great though!

  48. Oh Fred - why they don't let us enjoy our adventures!
    Hugs from Nero!
