A Laugh For the Neighbors

Okay Picure this:
                    Here we are 2 middle aged (LOL) people, just took our puppy for his nightly walk (so far so good). We are just coming up the driveway and hubby drops the leash,  you would think after having been gone for a walk the pup would be a little lax now in the observation of  the freedom department, wouldn't you, really?
                   Not so our little monster! The leash had not even hit the ground and he was off and running! Across over onto the neighbors lawn, heading straight down to the roadway, then back up, around and around in circles just as fast as those little legs could carry him! Hubby goes down  to the road, I stay at the top calling out his name (loudly, so as all the neighbors by now know he is loose!), trying to coax the little imp up and away from the road. Meanwhile he just squats down low and looks at me with his eyes all lit up, running towards me, then veering off again running more cirlcles.

                I run to the house, call out for "D" to come out and run back to calling for "Buddy". Poor "D" runs out thinking the worst has happened, only to realize she just needs to hunker down and call for him. And YEP he comes running into her lap at full tilt!! The little */?!

               The true test is going to come when he gets away and no one is home to help gather him up! I can just picture one of us trailing around behind him for hours on end til he tires out!
