Dalmatian - German Shorthaired Pointer Escapee

Family Trouble

I just got back from a short hike with my sissy, Frankie, the chiweenie. I can't say it was the most enjoyable walk. For starters, Mother was mean to Linguini, the biggest and oldest dog in our home. Mother, left Linguini behind. I would be devastated if that happened to me, but again, I'm a tiny tea cup chihuahua. Now, you may wonder, why was Linguini left behind, if not for health reasons? Well, to be absolutely frank, Linguini is an escape artist. One of her nicknames is indeed Houdini. Tonight, Linguini took off right after dinner and started raiding other people's homes for left-overs. Mom worries too much when my dalmatian and german shorthaired pointer sissy's gone, I get that; however, I believe that she does not need worry quite as much. Linguini is street savvy and very fast, even now that she's 10. She needs to roam, I get it. The only thing that I worry about is that sometimes our neighbors call the pound and no rescue pup likes to have the pound knocking on their front door.
Needless to say, our walk was a sad one. Frankie, Mommy, and I were all missing Linguini.
The proof! Linguini on her way out
(of course we stopped her after taking this photo)
Is it more common for dalmatians or german shorthaired pointers to escape?

Oh! Excuse me now, please. I'm being called in the kitchen for a family meeting. In-te-re-sting...

Oh dear. My people get most frantic when I escape. It is best to stay on the estate lest we cause the heart failure. Gosh, I never go on walkies with my dumb brother and I make total sad face every time.

Linguini called our mommy and said she would never do that again and to please ask yer mommy if she can go walkies next time.

We escaped into the back 40 one time and it made our mommy cry so we don't do that anymore.

Escaping always seems to upsets the hoomans so much but it is hard for free spirits to be fenced in and maybe if linguini had gone for a walk that free spirit wouldn't feel so restless.

These days, so many horrible things can happen to dogs that it is risky for them to wander around alone nomatter how much they love it. Would it be possible for Linguini to go for a walk with a long training leash?

Sounds like most of us have, um, gone for a little stroll on our own. I must admit, I did it once. Mom was crying. I stopped, even though I can leave any time I want to--true statement. I'm so small I can squeeze out in a jiffy!

Mom won't utter a word here about whether we have or haven't escaped so as not to jinx things. But we do know it would cause quite an uproar if we did. Phantom's leash came off somehow just as she was getting us out of the car at the vets this week and he took off for the grassy area. She was stunned but thrilled when she called him and he came right over to her. Escaping is too scary, tell Linguini not to do that any more.

Happy weekend, the OP Pack

We end up being grounded, too, if we leave the area or try to squeeze out of the gate before we are told. Grammy and Robert are working on the pups to teach them that important rule now, but at least we don't have any roads that are really close. The closest is about a quarter of a mile down our driveway, and it isn't terribly busy, but we usually run in the side or back pastures and there are 100's of miles of BLM land past us back there.

Mom's main worry is that we don't go out after the beginning of dusk because that's when the coyotes come out! Dott from Corgi Country
