I spoke too soon. The pups woke me at 2 am whining to get outside because the doggie door was locked. I woke Patrick because I wasn’t sure if I had slept through an incident or if he had locked them out at bedtime. It was bedtime, so we let them out thinking they needed to relieve themselves. No. They saw something and wanted to play. They quickly got called back in and the door got locked.
Tonight we found a dove in the basement.
Sigh. It’s going to be a long summer.
Once again, I’m grateful the dove was still alive and we were able to put it safely outside again. I’m also thankful for these crazy pups who keep us on our toes.
