Just a while ago I was going out to the mailbox and spoke to the neighbor and he said snowball got loose weds night and basically the whole block went out on a search mission for our beloved pooch! Me and brandi usually never leave him alone except the 8 hours of work which he is use to. But for days to be gone just upset him to the point he broke loose to go find his parents!! Anyways he came back about 5 am and everything is fine,but I just don't know why Julie did not tell us,I understand accidents happen and Brandi feels the same way. Well we are not going to mention it to her and meanwhile I am so glad Snowball came back and is safe and sound!!!

I'm glad that snowball came back!!!!! I'm guessing that she was just scared and didn't want to tell you but if the whole neighborhood helped in the search, then she should have figured out that they would tell you.

Ha! My grandmother used to argue with my aunt who lived down the road about whose turn it was to use the phone! It had one long ring for my grandparents and two short rings for my aunt.
