George won't be invited to stay at Daughter's again. Not that he was invited this time: he was only allowed ('He smells and he's naughty!') because we played the 'Look at all the times we have your children/dog' card.
So this time he escaped twice resulting in long searches in pyjamas (I should stress they get bathed and changed very early) and stole Daughter's lunch at least once. There was a message on our phone when we returned from someone who had our dog. Not in a 'give me the money or the dog gets it' kind of way - which is just as well because if Daughter had been in charge she would probably have let the dog get it - but meaning he'd been found and the kind people were looking after him.
But, and this is the interesting bit, it wasn't just George. Holly was with him. So what I want to know is: who took the initiative? Who led the escape committee? Naturally the expectation is that it was George but he's been awfully good recently. Even when the fence blew down and there was a huge gap for several days before Husband got round to replacing it he didn't leave the garden.
So my premise is this: Holly was just waiting for the moment when she'd have her bestie with her to go on a road trip. I'm just saying.
