    Wowzer, you're lucky she came back!

    At least it sounds like she had fun, and leaches are supposed to be good for your health, suckin' out the bad blood and all that, even though they are ugly little suckers!

    OK so last leech count was 11.

    She is still buggered so hasn't made any more attempts to go over the fence.

    She never goes far and always comes back, usually of her own accord within about an hour or she wanders into next doors house and plonks herself down on their nice cool slate floors or they find her in their swimming pool.

    Time before this that she visited next door they had the pool cover on and she was damn lucky she didn't get caught underneath it and drown.

    Fortunately next door now lock the pool fence gate, but they still have a creek that runs down the site of the property right near our fence line but on their side which she is rather partial to.

    She also likes next doors cats food which is just outside their back door.

    If next door had fences then it wouldn't be too bad but they don't although she has played with the Danes on the corner in their dam and they have horses etc and the people brought her back and said she had a wonderful time, didn't worry their horses etc, just wanted to swim and play with the other dogs.

    I move to the bush and Gemma wants to live by the water. Figures. Guess we'll be making weekly trips down to the beach for her highness.

    Rufus did the same thing last week. Got back from the movies around 11pm and went to let him in - no Rufus. Called and called, then housemate and I went to the walking path next to the house and called and called. Nearly had to call the emergency dog finding team into action. Luckily, he came thundering down to us soon as he realised he was being called. Damn goofy dog had taken himself for a run up the path and probably across a major road.

    The gate had been opened by someone/blown open in the wind - so he just waltzed out!!

    On the fence thing - took him for a walk with a friends dog on Sunday and he was tearing about. He got into someone backyard as their gate was broken. I've called and he has come full pelt to me - and bounced off a chicken wire fence. When I stopped laughing I pointed the way back and he remembered

    We actually had that happen with our old rabbit.
    He somehow escaped from his hutch and went for a bit of a wander.

    I was worried sick... as soon as we found him missing we did an all out search and then printed some flyers to put in the window of the local shop.
    The next morning we had a man knock on the door with a little black and white bunny in his arms.
    Turns out they found him not long after he escaped (in the afternoon) and pampered him in the house all night. He slept in a dog crate near their fire.

    I'm glad they found him and not a bunch of wild kids.

    Another incident was with my parents Great Dane.
    One of their fences had fallen down while they were out and she wandered off.

    They found her when driving home sitting in the middle of a traffic island on a 4 lane highway.
    She was just sitting there watching the cars go past.

    It made me kind of angry that no-one stopped to help her, she was the sweetest thing.
