MARCUS: Tuesday night between 9:30 and 10 PM, Jan let me outside and we heard strange noises. Jan listened and then she went next door at that late hour to scare ... um, I mean to warn the neighbors that their dogs were trying to break out again.
MERCI: At midnight, she opened the door for Marcus so he could have a last pee before bed. Sam and I charged out the door with him. We ran to the rear three panels of the pen and really checked them out. Then Marcus started prancing up and down like a hero on steroids, chuffing and pounding his chest ... well, actually he was prancing and making strange noises so it's basically the same thing.
CYNDI: He was pretending he was fearless but we all know he's afraid of his shadow. Still, he can put on a good show. The dogs didn't want to come in. Something was going on again in the neighborhood and we'll never know what.
BUDDY: The first thing Jan noticed the next morning was this hole in the fence. It was way too small for the dogs to squeeze through. And then the woman next door came over to say the dogs did indeed squeeze through that hole and asked could Jan keep an eye out for them.
SAM: Jan waited to hear they were home again. Thursday morning she was preparing for a meeting and, suddenly, she couldn't stand worrying any more about the dogs. She went on Facebook and tagged a few ladies in the local Humane Society, asking if anyone had seen or heard of a black lab and a Weimaraner traveling or picked up together.
PERCY: She also emailed the county shelter Animal Control guy. When she returned to Facebook, there was this picture of the amazingly flexible escapees in their prison cell. One of those she'd tagged, Miss Kay, shared the photo with her. They'd been hanging around someone's yard the day before and were turned in to AC.

MICAH: Jan called the woman. There was barking in the background. The couple had decided to check if the dogs had been picked up and the woman was at the shelter. She later said it seemed like they were expecting her. :-)
RUSTY: Jan hung up and Miss Peggy (shelter volunteer who helps with rescues) called to tell her the dogs were at the shelter. She had intended to call Jan to ask if she knew who owned them since the were found on the next street.
MARCUS: Miss Peggy said the dogs were so sweet she had a rescue already lined up for when their time was up.
CYNDI: Jan is still trying to figure out how those two dogs manged to get out through a hole barely big enough to fit a dog-size head through.
BUDDY: Since Miss Peggy said it is okay to use her photo, we thought we would go ahead and use it for our weekend art. We haven't done art posts in a long time.
MICAH: This is our entry for the Sepia Saturday blog hop hosted by Ruckus the Eskie and Earl & Ethel.
PERCY: Hmmm, this one looks a little strange but interesting. Oh, it's plastic wrap. We thought we would use this one for the Caturday Art blog hop hosted by Athena.
SAM: We thought we would toss in a black and white version too. We just love the expression on the Weimaraner's face. Disbelief perhaps?
