Dad had to go into hospital for an operation and as the hospital was two hours drive from our house Mum thought it would be best if I stayed with our Jen so that she could stay in a motel close to the hospital. BIG MISTAKE!!!! Mum and Dad were to be gone for 87 million days. I can cope with them gone for 87 minutes but 87 million days ..... CRIKEY ..... what were they thinking. They thought I'd be safe. Jen's house has an 8 foot high fence all the way round. Herbie NEVER escapes. Well ..... Herbie's not me, aye??? So ..... Mum and Dad dropped me off. All was well at first. Herbie was pleased to see me as were the little girls. I was pleased to see them too. We played in the yard for a while and THEN ..... Jen had to take the little girls to school and she had to go to work. I had to stay at home with Herbie. Hmmmmmph!! Now I like Herbie but he's not my Mum or Dad and I wanted them real bad so I decided I'd go looking for them. It was a stinking hot day. Well over 100 degrees. No-one really knows what happened except me so I'm telling you my version of events and you can believe me or not. I tried to jump the fence but it was too high at first but after trying a few times I took a bit of a run up and got almost to the top and clawed my way up (I left some pretty big scratch marks on the fence). I got stuck at the top for a bit but managed to jump down the other side alright. Then I took off in search of Mum and Dad. I ran all over the place. One Lady was yelling at me. Talk about scary!!!! I don't like people that yell. My Mum NEVER yells at me. Well ..... maybe sometimes .... like when I try to chase the birds. But this lady was yelling at me big time. Every time she got close to me I took off and when I run no-one can catch me. I ran a long way. I thought Mum and Dad might be at the beach so I went on the main road to the beach. There were a LOT of cars but I stayed on one side of the road and all the cars just slowed down and followed me. Lots of people tried to catch me but I ran into the bushes and they couldn't find me. Pretty clever, aye?? Crikey I got tired. It was soooooooo hot and I did a lot of running and there was no water to drink. I was feeling real crook so I decided I'd best head back to Jen's house. It took me a while to get back but get back I did. People saw me on the way back too but I just took off like a rocket whenever anyone got near and no-one managed to keep up with me. Jen didn't know I had escaped and when she got home she was VERY surprised to see me lying under a tree in her FRONT yard. I was soooooo hot and thirsty and felt real crook but I was soooooooo pleased to see her. She immediately took me inside and gave me a big drink and put the air conditioner on and after a little while I perked up a bit and she thought all was well. It wasn't until later when she checked her Book of faces page that she saw ME plastered all over it. Sightings all over the place of ME!! Oh my ..... Jen was really stressed as she knew by the times of the sightings that I had been missing for most of the day. She checked me all over and I looked ok and she gave me some food and I ate that alright so she thought all was well but later on she saw drops of bright red blood all over the tiled floor. Oh no ..... I was bleeding. Not only bleeding but ..... BLEEDING FROM MY PENIS! Fair dinkum!! My Penis!!!!! She was on the phone soooooo fast. To Peter ..... he's my Vet. Next thing I know I'm bundled into the car and off to see Peter. Do I have your attention now????? I do ..... well ..... can you wait till next week to find out what happened? It's a bit of a long story and I don't want you to get bored. Next week I'll finish the adventure ..... I promise ...
|Pretty nice afternoon at the beach, aye? Just so you know I survived.|
Wanna run ... Love, Charlie.
