Teddy locked Cubbie and me out of the house. It’s true.
Here’s what happened. I needed to take Cubbie to his appointment at the groomers. I didn’t want to bring Teddy along in the car just for the ride because he tends to get car sick.
So I grabbed Cubbie and started getting him out the door. As we were leaving, I put up this baby gate I have, which keeps the dogs from going into the basement when I’m not home. Cubbie and I go out the door and I hear a crash. Immediately I know Teddy has knocked the gate over (which he’s never done before). He wasn’t happy I was taking Cubbie away without him.
I put Cubbie in the car quick, and I went back to the house to put the gate up again. Well, I couldn’t open the door more than a sliver because the gate was wedged between a wall and the door and thus blocking the door.
By this point I was already running late to get Cubbie to the groomer, so I just decided to take him to the groomer and then deal with being locked out of the house.
On the drive to Shaggy Chic Grooming Boutique, I was thinking in my head how I might be able to get back into the house. The door through my garage was blocked, and my front door still had the deadbolt on it from overnight. My only option was my back patio door, but I’ve never actually used that key so I wasn’t sure if it would work.
I dropped Cubbie off at the groomers, drove home and luckily my patio key did work. So there is a happy end to this story without destruction to one of my doors or windows.
Thank goodness I made it back inside my house, and Cubbie’s furcut looks great!
