The brain has left the building

Before I proceed I need to submit a disclaimer:
Mama and Matt, do not freak out, all is well, everything is fine, Duece and I are currently engaged in a staring contest from across the room.

It is official, I have lost my mind.  My dog can NOT be off the leash unless he is in an enclosed area.  I admit it, I was lazy and when we first got him I did not take the time to train him how to be a good doggy, at least by those standards.  That combined with the fact that he is a beagle, also known as "nose of four legs", doesn't make for a successful walk when unleashed.

This afternoon I was getting ready to leave the house and I was taking Duece with me, and what do I do?  I open the door and say, "Come on Duece, lets go!"  He looked at me like, are you crazy?  And I just stood there, waiting for him to load up in the truck.  Did you pick up on the important step that I forgot?  No, I didn't leash him, and by the time I realized it he was down the street.  What was I thinking?  Obviously now I know why he was looking at me like I had worms coming out of my eyes.  My only guess was that the train wreck of a blog post from last night fried all of my circuits.

But God, being the great all knowing creator that he is, knew how stressed out I was and placed the neighbor and her dog out at their mailbox at the time my lobotomy was taking place.  He stopped, sniffed, and played with the dog and I came along and scooped him up.

I don't think that will happen again anytime soon.  Cardio for the day, Check!

See Mom and Matt, it all worked out.  No lectures please, if I wanted a lecture I would go back to college.

P.S. Here is a little gem for all of you.  Duece gave me a present today.  Isn't that sweet?  I have been working so hard and he recognized how hard I have been working and how tired I have been.  He wanted me to have something from him when I came home from work today.  Poop.  Yep, he pooped in his cage today, and then layed it in.  He is the best dog!

Oh my. Duce sounds like Rak. Rak has been known to take us on impromptu 3 mile runs when he makes his escape without a leash.
