Adventures abound in "The Perdue Zoo." Today, I found a new furry friend or shall I say, he found me. The little guy was so small he could get inside our fence without opening a gate. He is a cute little 3-4 pound chihuahua.
Dad came looking for me and this is when the furry fun leaped into a furry adventure. My new friend did not realize my humans meant him no harm. He went into an overgrown area on the back of our property. I went with him. Mom and Dad tried to talk me into bringing the little guy out, but he was too afraid and I stayed with him. He sat under my chin for a while and then after about 30 minutes or so, Dad made his way through the brush. At the sight of Dad, my new little furry friend climbed onto my back. He was NOT going with any human, willingly. Dad tried to slip a leash over the little guys head, but he kept snipping and snarling and actually got a bite of Dad's finger during the "chihuahua dance." Mom said, "your little friend looks like a mouse on steroids." I suppose he did look a little silly acting so ferocious. I tried my hardest to exude positive furry energy, but the little guy was over the top in fear. I am thankful Mom and Dad were NOT mad at him, but wanted to help him.
Finally, Dad caught him with a fishing net. Then I realized Dad was going to find his human family. I wanted to keep him. He did NOT want to leave me either. I wish Mom and Dad had taken pictures of our furry adventure. No words can capture the scene of my Mom in her PJ's and Dad with his fishing net now holding a tiny chihuahua in it, the little chihuahua soaked with my drool and Mom and Dad soaked with sweat and eaten alive from the mosquitoes. Just another day in "The Perdue Zoo!"
