I got lost in the woods with my dog

    I sh*t you not.

    I decided to take him to a local nature preserve yesterday because it was so pretty out. We've been there a gazillion times, and it's not the Sahara Desert or anything, but it's pretty  big--maybe a couple hundred acres. So anyhoo, after about twenty minutes I decided to head back to the car (so we'd have about 45 minutes out on the trail tops), and TWO HOURS LATER we finally found our way out.


    A turkey buzzard followed us for awhile but did not eat us, and we also saw a snake, a lake, and a bunch of frogs.

    Next time I'm bringing a compass.

      Wow, glad you made it out alive! Having a compass is always recommended...better to be prepared than dispared. wink

      Wow -- bet that got a bit scary, after a while.

      Thing is, your dog knew the way back the whole time and was snickering behind his paw.

        Muttley!!!! (old Hanah Barbara cartoon.)

        I apologize for derailing this convo a bit, but Teresa's comment made me think of Duck Hunt and this video.

    You know I bet he DID know the way out the whole time!

    I like taking my dog through the woods as well, so I always make sure I bring some water too, even if I am only going to be out there for a short period of time.

    Well, pgrundy--

    Thank goodness you passed your pooch's orientation-for-humans test, huh?

    This is toooo funny, Pam! The dog probably *did* know the way and was just stringing you along to make the outing longer! cool

    You may need to speak to that dog PGrundy! I am over being hoodwinked by our pooches, they are so sneaky! Your dog knew the way back alright... naughty dog!
