And then there were 3...???

Before anyone freaks out, I'm not referring to children here. I like my cute family just the way it is!

Apparently my dogs didn't agree with me today. They wanted just one more. So they invited in a random chihuahua. I was in the midst of making dinner, when I happened to look out my kitchen window to discover Ellie chasing around what appeared at first glance to be a rat with a blue collar. After closer examination, I realized it was a chihuahua running around my back yard! We have a fence surrounding our yard, so I had no clue how it got in. Did its owner open my gate and let it in? Did my dogs open the gate and let it in??

I hastily glanced out my front door to see if I could spot the owner, but instead I see the little rat climbing over the fence into the neighbors yard! You got it; he jumped about halfway up the chain link fence, then scaled the rest of the way into the next yard!

Here's the little scoundrel in the neighbor's yard. At present, my husband is trying to lure the dog closer so he can locate the owner, since the dog doesn't belong in the neighbors yard, either.

This was my Friday Favorite! Check out Hillary's blog to see more Friday Favorites.

Is he part kangaroo? That is really impressive!! So glad he managed to jump away and hope he finds his way back home soon!

I wouldn't put it past Bax & Ellie to invite random dogs into the yard. You never know what they're doing while you're at work....

My chihuahua would probably resent his kind being referred to as a rat LOL but that dog certainly has skills! Hope you found his owner.
