Where In The World Is That Monkey?

This is getting serious. Monkey has been gone for almost a week.

Bailey is very worried about her friend and is asking everyone to watch for a little lost monkey that may be wandering around in a daze.

I'm focusing the search closer to home today, mainly because yesterday it was 101 degrees and today's forecast is for 103.

Has anyone seen my Ipod?

Where would I go if I was a lost monkey? Maybe I'd read a good book in the library.

3 D movies are fun. I wonder if one is playing around here.

I know kids can waste a lot of time on hand held games, I wonder.

Maybe he met a friend for a little monkey business.

Because Bailey is so upset, I'll make an extra effort to find the little guy. You've seen those tiny little flashlights they use on CSI when they enter a dark house. I always wonder why they don't just turn the lights on. Maybe they don't learn about light switches in CSI school.

I have my own version of the CSI flashlight. I keep it in the garage near the back door. If I don't get the correct head count at night, I use it to find the stray dog that doesn't want to come in with the others. Taking my trusty CSI floodlight and a stick ( there was a snake in the yard in the spring and I don't want to reach under a bush and meet him) I set out to find that pesky monkey.

In the far corner is a rock with a large weed growing over it. Is that a monkey tail behind it? Do you see it?

I pulled the weed back and there he was. Rob and I had both walked past him dozens of times over the past week and didn't see him. Fudge did a good job of hiding him.

I gave him to Bailey and she had to sniff him all over to be sure he was alright.

He's OK and Bailey is happy to have her friend safely back with her. Don't you love a happy ending?

There is nothing as good as a happy ending. I love your CSI lamp too, I might have to get one of those.

Stella answered Tsar on her blog. I hope she enters! The more the merrier!

Hooray! Monkey is back. We've just had a similar incident here.

Poor Monkey, he didn't get to do any of that cool stuff. He just had to sit in the dirt until he was rescued. Bailey better hand on to him now.

You are a very cute dog! I haven't ever met a Portuguese Water Dog before, although I can imagine we have a lot in common: both being dogs, loving water, food, etc. :)

I'm from blog hop, and it is very nice to meet you.
I'm very glad your Monkey is back. :D

Please come and visit me sometime at

I'm glad I'm not the only one who wonders why they never turn on the light switch on CSI ans similar shows. Hooray for Detective Sue! Bailey looks very happy.

Yep! We love happy endings around here! I'm glad that monkey is home safe and sound. And we've wondered about that whole CSI-light switch thing, too. ;-)

we just hate it when our favorite toys go missing. we're so glad that this story had a happy ending. we liked the monkey enjoying the ipod and 3-D movies.

we always wondered about those stupid little CSI flashlights too. we're glad that the money got found without having to call in the CSI team.
