Dexter ran off last night.
It's my fault, really. We were sitting outside with friends waiting for the fireworks to start. It was super late, for us anyway, so I was tired and overwhelmed from the long day. The boys were playing corn hole and Dexter was jumping around. I remember hearing one of our friends say "Oh, that music means the fireworks will be starting soon" and I thought, I better put Dexter inside soon. And then I opened my phone and started playing a game. I had time.
I guess I didn't! Boom! the first firework went off and Dexter was done. He ran for the front door and Brandon noticed, so he headed over to let him in. I guess he took too long because Dexter turned around and took off sprinting around the house.
I thought maybe he would just try to go into the backyard, but we went back there and he was gone. The neighbors behind us said they saw him running south. That was the last we saw of him.
No one has called me yet, but I've posted all kinds of messages everywhere I can think of. I've called the MPs and the shelters around here. No luck. He is wearing a collar with my number so I hope he will find someone and they will call us soon.
Please hope Dexter comes home soon! It's eerily quiet in the house without him!
