Never Leave a Chihuahua Unattended

The day was bright and sunny. We were off to get hay with Stormy in the backseat and Solomon in the front. With a quick stop for a mocha latte , one with whip one without, and two dog biscuits, we were on our way. We pulled into our friendly neighborhood drive thru feed store and were met with candy bars and two more dog biscuits. We loaded the hay and were on our way. There is nothing a goatgirl likes better than riding in a truck with her honey, two dogs, a mocha latte and a load of hay in the back. Pure heaven.
We get home and I jump out to open the gate. Hubby drives through and jumps out by the large cedar tree and ducks behind it. Seems the large mocha latte was taking effect. As he stood behind the tree taking care of business he heard a familiar click. He knew that was the sound of the door of his truck.....locking. He came around the tree to find Solomon, grinning from ear to ear, standing on the lock button. Engine running and all of our keys, mine included, in the truck.
We spent the next ten minutes trying to get him to step on the button and unlock it. If you held a leaf or stick up to the window in just the right spot he would come over to look and would walk on the button. He just relocked it about 10 times and then got bored and jumped up on the console, turned around twice and laid down. I decided to run over to my neighbor's house and get my house key that she keeps and get in the house. I knew I had a keyless entry for the truck in there.
But by the time I got back the truck was parked by the hay shed ready to unload. Seems Hubby did get Solomon to stand on the window button, and once triggered, unrolled the window. What a guy. What a dog.
It was a perfect day.

Oh gosh! This got me laughing right out loud envisioning you guys outside encouraging your grinning chi to step on the lock button!

Would make a hilarious Funniest Video! hehe

Glad to hear it was all worked out without having to break anything, though.
I'm sure the Mocha Latte made it all better.

Ha, ha!!! I could totally relate....really!! This happened to me when I went (with pup, Roxy) to drop some things off at the Goodwill. I only got out for a second and in that moment, Roxy jumped into the driver's set, onto the arm rest and clicked the lock. Of course, I never was able to get her to reopen the door, so there I stood, in the drop off lane, engine idling and my dog looking at me, waiting for my husband to come with the extra set of keys...

I was so happy to see your post today! :-)

Really. A goat wouldn't have been in the car in the first place (if they could help it anyway). Dogs. Oy. You should have tried enticing him with Peanuts right from the beginning. It wouldn't have taken nearly as long I'm quite sure.

LOL!! Great post! Doesn't it make you wonder what those non-animal people do for entertainment?!

goatgirl said...

Yes I do wonder. I laugh every day at something one of my critters has done. Even while we were trying to get in the truck we were laughing. He was just so darn cute dancing on the buttons.

Hey there - just got your comment on the craigslist add - thank you! Are you on Marigold's Meadow yahoo group? I finally delurked and introduced myself a few minutes ago, but I'm not sure if I've seen you on there yet.

Yep, I'm on there! Funny I had the same worries about fainting goats. If you go back in the post we discuss it.

What a guy! What a dog! A perfect day! You've got it figured out, what life's all about.
I love this quote:

That's so funny! Don't let him fool you though, knowing Solomon he probably knew what he was doing the whole time!

goldilocks, I do believe you are right!
