Chasin' the Dobie!!!

Hola Y'all!!!

First things first!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ALL for voting for us at the animalrescuesite. We're still in first place thanks to all of you who are voting every day!!! YAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just GOTTA tell you about what happened to my two legged, human brother, Bud, the other day!!! Ya have to just picture this happening.

Bud is living in San Ramon, out in the country. Somebody was looking for a home for their dobie and Bud has been wanting a dog!
Anyway, now he has a GORGEOUS female dobie named Poas. (She's named after a volcano here in Costa Rica)

Well the other day Poas decided to make a run up the road. She takes off and Bud has to go chase her. She thinks it's GREAT fun but Bud don't enjoy it nearly as much as Poas does!!

Poas is pretty fast but Bud is pretty fast too so he usually catches her before she can get too far. But this time she got a head start!!!!!!!

She runs, as fast as she can, up the road and straight to a neighbors house with Bud hot on her heels!!

Now everyone here in Costa Rica keeps their doors and windows open most of the time. It's just that kind of climate!! The weather is usually perfect so........

Anyway, Bud's maybe two seconds behind Poas and she goes runnin' IN THE FRONT DOOR OF THE NEIGHBORS HOUSE!!!...through the living room...through the kitchen...and out the back door into the back yard!!!!

Bud goes runnin' in right behind her and chases her through the house and out the back door.

As he runs through the front door he realizes he is "invading" someone's home and quickly yells, "My dog!" He gets a quick glimpse of the entire family standing on their couch with bulging eyeballs!!!!

When he reaches the back yard Poas has a chicken pinned to the ground with her foot. He yells "POAS NO!!!!" and she releases it!! Chicken jumps up and takes off unharmed.
He grabs Poas' collar and heads back through the house.....where the family is STILL standing on the couch!!!!

He stops to apologize for the rude intrusion and the family all start jabbering away in spanish asking if the dog will bite them.

Bud told them "No" and stayed long enough to allow each of them to pet her and see what a good dog she is. He introduces himself to the family and tells them he is their new neighbor.

Mom says she is sure the family was thinking, "Gringo loco." WMFWB!!!!!!
