Twas the start to a very productive weekend. The end is in sight. Full steam ahead. Go dog go. Rip a hit.
Wowee kazam what a busy day. We were out the door by 8:30am and headed to the coffee shack to take care of a few things. The wind was supposed to be bad in the afternoon, so we wanted to weigh down our wall a little better to prevent it from drifting into the drive-through space. With that done, we went back to the apartment, grabbed the dogs and headed to the house.
We decided to take a break around noon because we were super hungry. The dogs had also been locked in their car crates for awhile and it was starting to be too warm to have them stashed there.
[One of our neighbors uses Idaho St as an extension of their yard by letting their dogs run free when they’re outside. They have four dogs all larger than Trooper and Sydney. Because we don’t have a gate yet, Trooper and Sydney feel the need to run down the driveway to Idaho St anytime their dogs are out – which is often. This creates a problem because Brian and I are usually working in the house with ear protection on and we can’t hear if there’s a dog fight breaking out. Trooper gets along with all of them but Sydney absolutely hates one of their dogs – and the feeling is mutual. So yeah…it’s a recipe for disaster which means the best protocol is to just lock our dogs in the car when we’re not out with them.]
So, we were super hungry and the dogs were getting hot. We needed to go back to the apartment. So what did we do? We locked our car keys inside the house. 🙁
I didn’t have my keys on me so we had no choice but to start walking back to the apartment (where my keys were locked inside). I sent a text message to the property manager, hoping she was around to let us in. No response, no response, just keep walking, no response…
She never responded. But we got veryyyyy lucky. It turned we had left the “backdoor” unlocked. We went in, grabbed my keys, drove the Smart car back to the property, took the Fit (with poor dogs inside) back to the apartment, ate lunch and then headed back (this time sans dog team).
