This afternoon, shortly after I got home from work, I had to run back out to my car. I left the dogs at the door with a firm "stay" and walked out. Not five steps out the door I heard the distinctive click of nails on cement. I turned around and there was Bender. He managed to sneak out the door before it clicked shut.
He doesn't get to sit in the front yard often because it's not fully fenced in. I had C grab me his leash and I tied him to the fence. He seemed to enjoy lying in the dandelions.
