We asked ourselves many times while dog sitting, why is Puck so skittish? In order to answer that question, you have to go back to his early days as a puppy. The story goes something like this ... One day while he was outside he was picked up by an owl, carried over the Thornapple River, and about an hour later someone called the owners to say that they just saw their dog fall from a tree. I guess I would be skittish too.
Why won't I be going back to Chuck E. Cheese's anytime soon? My purse got stolen on Monday night. I cancelled all the credit cards that night and panicked about what personal information I had left in there (ie. my social security card - if yours in in your purse or wallet - take it out immediately. By the way, great tip I just heard. Lay all the cards in your wallet face down on a photo copier and scan the contents. That way you will know what is hiding in your wallet. If you do both sides, you will also have the 1-800 numbers to call and cancel then too.) Wednesday afternoon I got a call from a woman who said that her daughter-in-law found my purse and since she doesn't speak any English she volunteered to call me. I was so grateful and exclaimed, "where did she find it?" The answer, "hmmm ... I don't know." Interesting, very interesting. (Somehow my purse made it from the mall area to Division Ave. with all it's contents intact, including my new razor cell phone. I lost a grand total of $4 bucks.) Thank you Lord.
