I did it again! I was just outside to potty when I caught a scent **sniff**— of a deer. I looked up and off it ran and so did I to try and catch it. The human was madly calling for me. I heard them but this was much more important than going back home. Even though I knew I would be in trouble the urge to chase is like an addiction that cannot be stopped. So what’s a bloodhound to do? THE CHASE IS ON!
Well as usual the score was Deer-1 and Annie-0! After about an hour and a half I decided I better get home. As I turned the corner of the cornfield heading down the drive I spotted the human on the porch. OH NO! I am in trouble now. If I sit and hide behind this big oak tree the human will not see me and when they go back in the house I can sneak up to the porch. I heard the human hollering, “Come on Annie I see you, you are not hiding!” I kept ignoring them. Then the human stepped to the edge of the porch where they could see me sitting behind the big oak tree and I saw the hand signal to come there. Busted! So I reluctantly head toward the house.
I went straight to my kennel knowing I was in trouble and listening to the human rant. I was soaking wet from stopping at the pond on the way and playing in the water. I knew what was coming—a shower! Just as I suspected the human came to the kennel took off my collar and off to the shower we went. But all in all getting in trouble again was worth every minute!
