A Monday Happy

Hey! Lookit that! It’s Monday! I sure hopes everybuddy had a good weekend!

Guess what? My Cuzin Bridger himself commented on my postie on Saturday. And since some of you prolly didn’t see what he said, I thought I’d copy it here. He said…

Just to be clear, it was one hundred TWENTY cookies I ate.

And I thought I was going to be left to starve in that jail cell. I had to break out.

And those boys better treat my cousin mayzie right.

See why he’s my hero?

Okie doke…I thoughts I would tell you a happy story today.

About 10 days ago, my mom was leaving work and she saw two dogs trotting down the road. Well, she saw they hads their collars on and she decided to try and see if she could help ’em out since they were most obviously lost.

Now you knows how we dogs are. When we gets out, sometimes we kinda forgets ourselves and decides we don’t want anybody’s help. So mom wasn’t sure what these dogs would think about her but she went ahead and stopped her car and opened the door and said, “Hi kids. Are you lost?”

Dog #1: Oh thank dogness! I’m pooped! We’ve been walking for about 93 days.

Dog #2: What? NO! Why would you think we’re lost? Move along, lady!

Dog #1: Uh, don’t listen to him. He’s crazy.

Dog #2: What? Shut up! You’re the crazy one! Remember how mom told us not to talk to strangers?

Dog #1: (rolling his eyes) Hey lady…I’m pretty sure my mom’s phone number is on that jingly thing on my neck. Would you be a dear and give her a call?

So mom called the number and this lady answered and mom told her she thought she had her dogs and the lady was just about beside herself with happinesses. She said they’d been looking all over for them and she would rush right over this very instant. So while mom waited, Dog #1 wanted to know if she had any water or cookies or cheese (she didn’t) and Dog #2 kept pacing back and forth saying, “This ain’t right. I’m tellin’ you, this ain’t right. Look at her shifty eyes! You can’t trust her!”

But Dog #2’s attitude right away changed when he saw his mom drive up. OH! He was Most Deliriously Happy. “LOOK! OMD! IT’S MOM! WE’RE SAVED! WE’RE SAVED FROM CRAZY BAD SHIFTY-EYED LADY!” Well, their momma hugged my momma and said thank you, thank you and how can I repay you? And my momma told her not to worry about it and she hoped that if me and Brudder Ranger ever got lost, somebuddy would try to help us.

Then the lady told mom where she lived and mom couldn’t believes it. Those crazy dogs had gone across two of the most busiest roads in our town and through a place where they’re doing lots of works on the road with a whole mess of big equipments and trucks and stuff. Well, I tell you what – they might be some of the luckiest dogs that ever ever lived, that’s for sure.

So anyways, mom was real happy that everybuddy was safe and sound and going home. And she didn’t think too much abouts it after that.

Then on this last Friday, she got a call from those doggies’ momma wanting to know if her and the daddy-man could stops by where my mom works cuz he wanted to say thanks you in pawson. So mom said yes and they showed up with Dog#1, who was Most Happy to see mom again, and a card and some TOYS and cookies for me and Brudder Ranger!

Here’s the envelope thingie for the card. The black and white doggie is Mistrustful Dog #2 and his name is Bandit. The yellowy doggie is Thankful Dog #1 and mom *thought* his momma had called him Nickie but the card is signed from “Arr-rooly” so mom’s kinda confused about that.

Here’s the front of the card. Haha! A dog under the waters! Isn’t that crazy?

And the inside of the card. If you wants, you can biggify it to sees what they wrote. It’s Most Sweet.

The lady and man also put 50 green papers in there which momma didn’t knows about until after they left. And that kinda made her feel funny inside. So we all talked it over and we’re gonna donates it in their name to a rescue place to help out some other doggies.

Then me and Brudder Ranger thoughts it would be the right thing to do to offer to donate the toys and the treats, too, but mom said we could keeps those (which was a Most HUGE relief, I can tell ya that!).

I hopes your Monday is Most Happy and I hopes that if you gets lost, somebuddy is there to help!

  1. Mayzie!!! oh my stars your mom is one special lady and talking about timing the right person was in the right place at the right time. All my stars were aligned!!!
    What a wonderful happy story. Those pups are owned by very nice people who took the time to say another great big thank you. We got a big lol at the lost dog’s conversations. You mom needs to write a doggy book she has great insight to their thinking. We think the decision to give the money to rescue foundation is excellent.
    Thanks for the wonderful story it made our Monday morning bright.
    Madi and Mom

  2. We are so glad your mommy helped those doggies find their home! And what great gifts you guys were given!

    How Wonderful!! Your mom was a HERO!!! I am sure those people were very glad to give her the 50 papers… butt if they find out she donated it… they will be EVEN MORE HAPPY. I think you have a wonderful mom. Butt I am SURE you know that already!!!

  4. Maizie…you are right,that is a wonderful story! We are so glad those dogs got back to their furever home! Please give your muzzer extra slobbery terrier kisses from me and Teka


  5. That is the happiest story ever, Mayzie. Thanks so very much for sharing it. Your Mom is so special. I guess she’s even special enough to deserve you! It was extra specially nice to give the green paper to the shelter and I think she was right about the toys, too. Those lost doggies’s Mom and Dad meant them for you and Ranger and that’s who should have them.

    I hope those dogs don’t get lost again. Blog Mom says that some dogs are pretty good escape artists and that’s one (of many) reasons they wanted a Shar Pei. We’re easy to keep inside a fence. She said that she once had a labradog who could climb a six foot chain link fence if she really wanted. She could also open windows in the house. The Moms say they’re too old now for that kind of thing.

  6. That was a very happy ending to an unauthorized walk and what nice people to go out of their way like you did!! It is fantastic that the 2 dogs stayed together during their outing. I always try to help out a lost dog. On my cell phone I also have the phone number of our local animal control in case there is a larger doggie wandering around that might be a danger to me or anyone else. I have found it helpful and used it several times. I also keep a spare leash in the car just in case.

    Thanks for the Happy Monday story. We enjoyed it so much and are so glad you reunited obviously very well loved dogs with their mom and dad. xoxoxo

  7. We had a good giggle about that conversation those dogs had with your mom! How lucky that she spotted them and they got to be reunited with their family. Our family feels the same way, that if something were to happen to us that someone else would help. Our tails are wagging at your good deed!

    Your cousin might be my new hero!


  8. how cool is those toys šŸ˜€

  13. Mango

    Your mom is the greatest. My momma carries leashes and water in the car for just such emergencies. She used to carry cookies too.

    That is a wonderful story. I love going on big adventures outside the fenced yard, but it always gives momma heart attacks.

  15. That’s great that your mom was able to help those two most special doggies. I hope your mom told them about your blog – I bet they would love to read about you and your Brudder Ranger!

  16. Great story guys! One of our friends got out of his yard once and mom say him on the way to work. Chico is a pitbull and he was ‘terrorizing’ all the peoples on the street! So mom pulled up and and told everyone he was a nice doggie and she’d take him home and loaded him up in the car. Mom said everybody thought she was crazy for letting a pitbull in her car and that they were ready to see her get attacked! She said they were the most crazy people ever!

  20. Holy safe dog return Mayzie! That’s awesome! Mom stopped and asked a dumb as a stump Dalmation (not to stereo type) if he wanted a ride since he was sitting in the middle of the road.. hello. Dumb dumb. He was like, sure. So mom read his info and drove him home but then the dumb as a stump refused to get out of her car! I mean he even showed his toofeses to her! She tried to reason with him, but I mean, how can you reason with a stump?! So she drove to the shelter so they could pull him out with one of those dog puller things and just then his mom called and was like, oh yeah he gets out all the time… mom was like, hmmm guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, now does it? So she drove the dumb as a stump back to the dumb as stumps family and they all lived happily ever after….

    That family was so sweet to send you guys some goodies! You guys rock!

    Love ,
    Stella, Gunther and Betty

  21. Hi Mayzie! My mom finally let me use the computer so I could stop … whachamacallit … lurking! and comment on your blog. How lucky for those doggies that your mom came along when she did. So scary to be out in the world without your hoomans to protect you … I mean without your hoomans to protect. Mom and I have been enjoying your blog. My mom sometimes writes about me on her blog thingy but not nearly enough.

  22. That was SIMPLY PAWESOME all the way ’round!

    From your mom to their mom and bakhk again!

    My mom always keeps her eyes out fur wayward khanines and will stop and try to help when she khan – she’s always got spare leashes in The Xterra just fur those moments!

    After one of her transports last fall, she stopped someplace to get a hoagie – when she got bakhk on the road, she ended up having to detour bakhk around – and then she saw a dog ready to make his way akhross six lanes – she pulled ovFUR and he started bakhk up the hill and away from traffikh – then she saw he was travelling with another pal – she tried to khonvince them to get in with her – she saw they had khollars and tags – but they wouldn’t – she does know that she helped direkht them bakhk into more of a neighbourhood and not the highways – it was one of her ‘things happen fur reasons’ events

    Please thank her fur us!

    PeeEssWoo: Owen has a pending furever home – The Last Resort doesn’t finalise adoptions fur a week or two just in khase the fit isn’t a good one fur all involved!

  23. Hi Mayzie – oh, what a happy story! He he he – if we ever got lost (which, paws crossed, we haven’t yet – oh, apart from on our 3rd day home, but more about that later….!) we think JD would be like dog #1 and Max would be like dog #2, he he he! But thank doGness your mom was there to help – the world is a better place for humans like your mom you know.

    How pawsome that the owner sent such cool gifts. You’re very kind to offer to give your new toys away too but it’s good that you got to keep them!

    Now, when we’d only been at our furever home for 3 days we found a hole in the fence that our humans hadn’t spotted and so wriggled through for a great adventure! The humans were frantic, running up and down the road, shouting for us, FH was in tears, they were beside themselves. Well, we were having a fine old time! We’d been invited into the neighbours house and were being fussed by the big, friendly boxer who lived there as well as being hand-fed treats by their owners. They weren’t sure where we’d come from as we were so new they hadn’t spotted our humans with us yet, but they soon heard FH screaming our names outside so they took us out to them. We must admit we thought it was all terribly exciting!

    Please give your mom a special schnauzer snuggle from us for being so great! šŸ™‚ JD and Max.

  24. Mazie what a wonderful thing to do! Boxen and I got lost in our old house once and mom found us three blocks over at someone elses house playing in the sprinklers. The lady said she saw us but we weren’t going near her! She happened to have her sprinklers turn on at that moment and we came to play in them. She left them on so we would stay. She said she was really glad mom was there cause she was wasting lots of water. LOL

    I am glad you got some rewards for your brave mama.

    Boxer love
    Boxen and Bella

  25. This was a way wonderful post, Mayzie! We are so happy for the dogs and your Mom is a WONDERFUL Lady, but I guess you already knew that didn’t you! She sounds like my Mom and her sister, Auntie Naunie, who works with the Unity Thrift Dog Rescue (They had a thrift shop to make money to help take care of the animals).

    That was really sweet, too, that they were so nice to you all. So many don’t really try to thank others when they do help. Looks like you got quite a HAUL!!

    Congrats on getting your name into our Corgi Toss for the prizes for Miss Mercy’s Monday Mystery! We will have the big drawing after the next MMMM!
