  1. Oh I so needed this laugh.
    I feel for the poor sod, but still laughed my frock off :)
    Glad you found George, or should I say, he found you, they have ways of making us panic don't they !
    Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day, on the field with your critters..

  4. Blimey I've just snorted my coffee down my nose!! How very attractive!! Hilarious!! I do feel for you tho re George - I spent an inordinate of time calling my hound the other day but he was cocking a deaf un in the middle of a ten acre field having found something unsavoury to eat. Bliddy animals!!!

  5. They were only park deer. Even the queen would have saw the funny side...

  6. I can so relate to that poor man! Dane would have been hunting them in earnest.

    George is a comedian, eh? So glad it was just miscommunication between you two and nothing more! Dxxx

  7. My brother used to live right near Richmond Park..it is so gorgeous. I believe the deer were originally brought there by King Henry the 8th.

    Dogs running off....i've been hysterical myself when mine disappeared.

  9. I've seen this one before. It still makes me laugh in that awful way you laugh when you feel really sorry for someone, and hope that nothing too awful happens ion the long run. Imagine the state of mind of Benson's owner.

  11. What a perfect illustration of someone (like me) futilely calling their dog (like my airedale). Wonderful!
    George is obviously much more obedient that Fenton!

  12. I'll bet your heart was in your mouth for a few minutes. Glad he was okay.

  13. Some of the follow up versions were even funnier; did you see the one with the geese?

  14. And our cats NEVER hear us calling until the fourth (or the fourteenth time.
    Glad it ended well.

  16. Truly terrifying. I think I'd go insane.

  18. Hi John, Just came across your blog via the comment you left on mine a while back. I love your gorgeous photos - life seems idyllic in Wales. My husbands family are from those parts and we listen in envy when the family come to visit us all the way over here and share their lives.
    Keeping my eye out for news re: your geese. Hope some goslings hatch your way soon!
    Nat :)

  19. crikey that reminds me of when we thought we'd lost one of our dogs, when we were moving house and the removal guys left the doors and gate open. I let my 2 out the back for a wee and only 1 came back in. Frantic searching and calling...she was waiting at the other door.

  20. Such synchronicity! Mrs P had a similar experience yesterday as an observer and we revisited the Fenton video as a result last night.

  21. LOL! Great clip!
    Once had a dog which was part whippet, he would absolutely REFUSE to listen leaving us very red faced !!

  22. "Up the Gop"? I thought that was a crude sexual term. Mind you, I know what nurses are like.

  23. Sorry, but it is very hard not to laugh! You have the best spirit!

  24. Oh God, you can feel the panic in that poor man's voice, didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Bet his dog was in trouble later.

    Dogs eh, they bring you sorrow and they bring you joy, but mostly joy.

  25. I laughed out loud when i read your blog entry, and also when i saw the video.

    I'm glad George was all right, and he was probably wondering why you were all uptight when he was where he needed to be...

    I've done that with the cats, thinking them outside at night when i'm ready for bed, and i call and call, only to find them in their usual sleep spots (one on each bed). I wonder if they liken when i do that to dogs howling at the moon.
