Anybody want a dog? Or two?

At my parents' house, the kitchen leads into the laundry room, which leads into the garage. There is a doggie door in the laundry room/garage door and then a doggie door in the garage/back yard door so the dogs can come and go as they please. I was sitting at the kitchen table on my laptop when Sammie (little girl; middle of the userpic photo) came in with her lower half absolutely covered in mud. There are paw prints all over the kitchen floor. I grabbed her, took her to the shower, and cleaned her off as well as I could, all the while grumbling and wondering how it is she got so muddy when K.C. (oldest of the two males; laying down in the userpic photo) came in with her and had not a speck of dirt on him.

What I failed to wonder was "Where is the third bichon?" I got Sammie cleaned up and was back on my computer when there was a loud thud at the front door. Oshie (son of the first two; left side of userpic) was jumping and banging at the front door, waiting to be let in. He had a good bit of mud on him, but not nearly as much as Sammie.

Since I don't know where they dug the hole or whatever that let him get out, I've had to shut of the doggie doors and lock them inside. I'll have to let them out back and go out with them periodically today until Dad gets home and can hopefully fix whatever it is. I also still need to clean muddy foot prints off the kitchen floor. The only good thing about all this is that it was a bichon that got out. As demonstrated by Oshie, anytime they get out they go straight to the front door and demand to be let back in. When Ginger, the chow-shepherd mix, gets out, she goes exploring and you have to chase her and bring her back.

So, anybody want to take an ornery dog or two off my hands?

Sometimes, it's a good job they're cute, isn't it?

They have to be adorable. If not, they'd never survive. The owners would kill 'em all.
