Rascally Ike

Last night I was getting ready for bed and couldn't find Ike in any of his typical haunts.

We searched the entire house including the attic and the mud room (even though Ike doesn't have opposable thumbs and couldn't get in either of those locations alone). We offered cookies. No Ike.

Hmmmmm...finally John suggested checking under our bed which has a clearance of maybe 6". Ike has NEVER-EVER gone there - why would he? He would have to commando crawl under it.

Well, there he was! One of his new favorite places to sleep is under the daybed, but due to packing for the move access is blocked. He must have thought under our bed would be similar; I think he likes being behind the dust ruffle. :) I think he crawled under there to have some alone time and got stuck; he was captured in a corner between a sweater box, the ex-pen bed barricade and the wall!

Thank doG he was okay. Perhaps it was birthday prank. I had a real moment of panic because I couldn't find him anywhere and he turned down the offer of cookies! Very un-Ike-like!

LOL, what a character. Glad you found him, glad he was ok, guess he still has some puppy silliness in him, maybe he had to prove that on his birthday.

Silly Ike,proving he still has a youthful side!

I'm glad you found him safe & sound.

*pulls hair put* Maybe Ike wanted you to be bald??

Hahaha, what a birthday adventure! Glad he was all right.

And happy belated birthday to him!

Too funny, silly dog! I have never "lost" Stewie, he is always right there, but I have lost the cat, it is a funny feeling, until you find her hiding spot.
They always keep you guessing......
