I just have to share this, my family and I were sitting Sunday night enjoying a movie. Dudley and Darby both went to the sliding door, they needed to go potty. We always let them out as our backyard is totally fenced in.
We were sitting in the living room and all of a sudden we hear this noise coming from the front of the house, my DH and my sons went to the front door and my mouth dropped as guess who was on the front porch scratching at the door to get in.
I automatically panicked to see Dudley at the front of the house, and then my heart sank as Darby was not with him. :cry: It was dark and he is much harder to spot at night. My kids ran out the front door calling for Darby, he was just about to step out onto the road and a car was coming.
My oldest son ran out onto the road and stopped the car.
I am so proud of Dudley that he came to the front door to get in if he had'nt I don't even want to think what could of happened.
After investigating the backyard, my DH had cut the grass earlier
and he had neglected to latch the gate properly. I am so proud of my little boy Dudley he came right back and alerted us that his little brother was missing.
What a great big brother he is, he got lots of praise and treats from everyone.
Please make sure your gates are closed, I will be pretty nervous about letting them out in the backyard alone now.
Dudley knew he had done something good and you could see the happiness and glow in his eyes amongst the tears from mine and the kids.
He is such a smart boy.
