Wayne, I can’t find the dog.
What? What do you mean?
He’s not in the house. Wtf
Just calm down. Have you checked all the rooms?
YES, he’s not here. Omg
It’s going to be okay. Maybe go ask some of the neighbors
I already tried that. They haven’t seen anyone come in or out
Do I call the cops?
No, not yet. You only left for a little while, right?
Yeah, I went to get groceries and
shut all the doors like usua
I’m re ally freakin out
It’s gonna be ok. Ill try to leave work early
I feel so stupid
If I hadnt left he would be here
U sure you checked everywhere?
Like opened every door?
I mean yeah
Our closet is too small for him
to hide in
What if he got out and
got hit by a car???
He can’t open doors
He has to be there
Who else even has a key?
Your mom and my mom
But I don’t think they stopped by.
Im try ing not to have a panic attack
I cant believe this is happening
We only had him a year, babe
It’s going to be okay
You don’t konw that! How are we
supposed to take care of kids in
the future if we lost a dog in
our own damn house???????
Try opening every door again and calling for him
And i mean every door
Babe?/ You there?
I FOUND HIM!!!!!!
OMG he was here the whole time
In the bathroom
The door, I left it opened
He pinned himself in there
He was scared and crying and I couldnt hear him
I usually close it when I leave
Hes NEVER done this before
The neighbors must think Im crazy lol
I cant believe I almost called the police
Glad he’s okay. Gping back to work now.
Youre gonna b a great mom someday
Love you too
