That time my dog jumped out of the camper window!

Head, body, toes, her whole self went through the dinette slide-out window! From storms to fireworks, she gets scared rather quickly and this particular event was a day or two after New Year’s. Above my head, the dinette window is a couple of feet up, so for her to jump was quite a feat. It fell from the window, the screen that is, as she pawed her way through it. But would you believe after getting the screen out of the way (and the window was open since there was a nice breeze), she must’ve looked out and thought, “I can’t really see the ground because of how dark it is, but I can do this!”? Did she kiss Piper goodbye on her way up to the dinette seats and out the 8-foot high window? Piper blinks and just thinks, “What a weird dog.” With my arms, I would’ve caught her had I known this was happening but I was in the house next door watching football (RIP Ohio State who lost to Georgia that night). Who knew my dog was planning such an escape!? “Anywhere but in this tiny camper,” she must’ve thought. What would you have done, if you were her? Deep breath, hold on tight, and make the leap! She ran to the front door, then the back, and I eventually saw her in the yard. I thought, “Wait, didn’t I leave Asia INSIDE the camper, how is she now OUTSIDE the camper!?” I simply can’t wait to hear this story, although Asia has yet to tell me all the details. That’s how I kicked off the first hour of 2023… finding a wide open window, screen toppled on the ground, and a dog who would do anything to be somewhere else when loud booms are booming. 

See y’all tomorrow…
