And I'm heartsick. Chester got out last night and he's a runner. We have an enclosed front porch and I keep the cat food out there that I feed to "my" strays. I went out to feed them and thought I had the inside front door shut. It wasn't and as soon as I opened the outside door, Chester zoomed out. He doesn't even have a collar on because he chewed through the harness I got him. (While it was on) I bought a new one but don't put it on him unless we're actually using it. He ran to the neighbors house first (where his "girlfriend" lives) but by the time I could get over there he was gone. husband came home as I was walking down the street so he drove around for a bit. He didn't have any luck so I drover around....twice. I could always hear dogs barking in the distance...probably where Chester was....but everytime I got to the area where I thought it was coming from, the dogs had all stopped. He got out one other time when we weren't home but showed up out front the next morning. I was hoping that would be the case today but no sign of him. I've already been out driving twice this morning and no luck. husband keeps telling me that he's a smart dog and if he wants to come back he will. I know but....he's so LITTLE. I am supposed to go comparison shopping today for new flooring but I hate to leave the house. husband has to work and if Chester shows up, no one will be here. Can one of you come over and watch for him?
