1 The World According to Bella | "Home Alone 3"

Here I am on porch patrol!
"I have never been allowed to watch the movies Home Alone 1 and 2. Mrs. S didn't want me to worry about all the things that could happen when I was home by myself. But this week the unthinkable happened. I was left home alone at the lake, unsupervised and OUTSIDE for almost five hours. Yep, you read that correctly. My heart still races thinking about being left behind. Mr. C says it was my own fault. He thought I was disobedient because I did not come when called. Mrs. S was some 180 miles away in the cities and couldn't come to my rescue. What was he thinking, leaving me outside by myself. Wild thoughts of a bear or coyote attack, bolts of lightning, scary thunder, sheets of rain, bats swooping around me, hunger pains, scary noises, darkness, loneliness all went through my head. I miss Mrs. S. I know she would have never allowed this to happen had she been at home.

Here's how my misery started. I got a real early dinner and went back outside to play. When Mr. C called me to come in, I thought it was a game and ran around the house. The more times he called me I just ran farther into the woods. I wanted to be outside. I did not need an AC fix that day and already had my dinner. But I guess Mr. C got tired of calling and waiting. He just left. Imagine that!! He had somewhere to go that important he couldn't wait around for me to return!! Maybe I was a bit naughty not coming when called, but really not so bad you would leave me outside all alone for sooo long.
After awhile I got tired of playing by myself. I had already gone swimming to cool off, dug several holes in the yard, went to my neighbors to look for bunnies and checked on the muskrats down near the water. I went to the door and barked hoping Mr. C had come home. I checked the driveway-still no car. It was really, really quiet. Being home alone and stuck outside was no fun at all!' 

It was getting dark and I was scared. I was worried about that bear. I had heard stories lately how it comes out at dusk and roams the neighborhood looking for food. I laid on my rug on the porch trying to figure out what to do next. It was now getting more dark and dark and really dark. There were no lights anywhere, Finally, headlights appeared in the driveway. Lucky me, Mr. C returned. I gave him my best tail wag. I was so relieved and happy to see him. I was worried I'd have to spend the entire night outside. Maybe next time when Mr. C calls my name, I should come. It's no fun being left home alone and stuck outside."

Love, Bella
