I looked away for a little bit,
When I turned around my dog was gone,
He chose to run away when I looked away for a little bit,
Panic hit at the idea that my dog was gone,
I wondered how far he had gone in that bit.
I ran around in my pajamas and robe,
I probably looked like a crazy lady,
I didn’t even bother to get out of my pajamas and robe,
I didn’t care if I looked like a crazy lady,
I knew I didn’t have enough time to change out of my pajamas and robe.
Thankfully my other dog didn’t choose to follow,
Thankfully I heard the neighbor dogs barking,
I praised my other dog for choosing not to follow,
Glad the dog that ran away got scared of the barking,
It was because of the barking that my dog stopped when I chose to follow.
I cried with relief when my dogs were safe inside the home,
My dogs chose to lay down in our bed after the adventure,
Yet a comfy home doesn’t stop them from running away from home,
These dogs still want to go on an adventure,
I just want them to always stay safe at home.
