I've Been "Booed" Part 2

I went shopping today for my supplies to "Boo" two neighbors. I couldn't wait for it to get dark so I could make deliveries. Geoff very willingly accepted the challenge of being my get-away driver. I picked two families that also teach school. When we went to the first house, no one was home. Ugh! So I figured I'd leave the the package on the doorstep for them to find it. As I was walking up to the door I noticed what looked like a dog but it was so still I thought it was a statue. Then it barked at me! I screamed and about wet my pants! Thankfully they WERE gone because surely if had been home they would have heard me. I opted to leave the package on the bricks by the driveway rather than risk a dog bite.

So off we go to the next neighbor. I quietly walk to the door where ANOTHER dog barks at me but at least this one was inside! I put the package down, rang the door bell and ran like crazy to the car. Again, no one was home! That just took the fun out of my booing.

We came home watched some tv and about an hour later went back out to check to see if the packages had been discovered. YES!! Not as much fun as having them home like I was when my package arrived but still fun. I can't wait to see what happens!

I love this boo-ing idea! What fun! How did we get such non-ferocious dogs as compared to everyone else?!
