    Default Has a Golden Retriever...

    He's an oldie. Took Batty for his walk this morning and came back to find a beautiful older GR sitting on my driveway with a friend. Not sure what the other dog was, it rushed at Batty and I then took off barking it's head off after I chased it off (Poor neighbours...). GR is still sitting on my driveway. I've given him some water, gotten his council rego number off the tag and will be calling them once they open to come and get him.

    Already tried calling the council and the ranger isn't working at the moment unless it's an attack or a danger to people (which it's not) so he's having a sleep, Batty's having a whine and I'm worried

    The owners just picked up Missy (he is a she LOL). Wow that retriever is spoiled They brought chunks of steak and did some recall practice with her on the driveway.

    Apparently her friend is their neighbours dog who lets herself out and lets Missy out too. The husband had forgotten to lock the gate again after mowing yesterday.

    Good news Angela, lets hope the other one took off home.

    Hope wife slapped husband over head for leaving gate open.

    Skids did that once when I had my last two old Kelpies.

    One sat on the front porch and waited but old mum who had dementia wondered down the centre of the road and as I'm driving up the road I'm thinking to myself "gee that old dog walks just like my old girl, S&^($# F&^% Bloody hell, that is my old girl.

    He closed it, but forgot to shut the padlock properly I think he'll cop the slap over the head once they get home!!

    I think they were both more relieved that she was ok than anything. She really was beautiful, very stereotypical GR temperment.

    Apparently the other one usually makes her way home after about 3 or 4 hours of running around.

    I bet you were fuming about that! They were both ok right?

    Maybe they need one of those spring loaded gate shutters that stops the other dog pulling it open when hubby forgets to lock it. Or they need a note taped to the lawn mower - lock the gate...

    lol I did that once... I think I have mentioned I have a saluki. Well he does not like to be confined. He tore apart a shed to get out and he jumps , climbs or chews through just about any fence. This is not usually a problem, I just let him run around the houseyard and whilst he is with the family and friends. But one day I was driving home on the main road and went F#$% that looks like Buzz! and ... well ... it was!

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!
