It's been a terrible day. It hasn't stopped raining and Mya hadn't done No. 2's since yesterday so OH let her out in the garden this evening, about 5pm and, somehow she managed to get over the bottom fence.
Hubby and I went in search of her in the field behind the house. She was chasing the farmer's cows. He was not too pleased. BUT the good news is, thanks to the flooding we have round here, she stranded herself and OH managed to catch her. We are both covered in scratches from climbing over barbed wire fences and totally soaked through from wading through flood waters but SHE IS SAFE.
I feel sick. I thought she had gone. There are so many open spaces round here. I thought I would never see her again. i just kept thinking, how could I tell her carer I lost her. I feel just awful, I let her and Mya down.
We are looking at options at the moment and I think we are going to put a 6 foot wooden fence along the bottom boundary, the uprights are already in so it won't be too difficult. Along with the electric invisible fence (I want to make sure) everything should be secure.
For now, she will only be allowed out on a long line. I am not risking going through that again.
It's so sad to know that she wants to run away from the people who are trying to care for her and feed her and love her. Maybe in time, she will trust us and want to stay.
