Lily vs. Motorcycle

I'm a dead duck.
My face will be featured on a milk carton as "lost" soon.
Mom will change the locks.
All mom keeps saying is something about a heart attack and
 being a nervous wreck.
I can't believe my NEW FLEXI leash snapped Ben.
We need to investigate this thing.
Yep, snapped like a piece of string.
I don't think you should have chased the motorcycle Lily.
I told you to stay. You kept running.
You got me in big trouble Flexi Leash.
Mom will never buy you again.
Benny & Lily

Pee S.
We were walking in a busy beach parking lot when my Lily saw a motorcycle. 
When she went to dart after it, the Flexi leash snapped..she took off at least 500 feet or more.
Mom almost died right there.
She spoke of heart attacks and nerves being a wreck. Of being sick and shaky.(drama)
The cycle stopped, Lily jumped on the man and kissed him. The man held Lil til we got there.
Me and mom couldn't help but kiss Lily.

Pee Pee S.
The lady gave in and bought Lil a Flexi for "up to a 44 pound" kid.
ut oh....we just had a flashback


  1. woo guys like to live life on the edge i shee
    we fink lily has the hots for motowcycle dawgs she likes the bad boys teehee

  2. So glad she's ok! We actually had a couple of problems with our standard clip leash; we never consider how unsturdy that little button that clips the leash is and it came undone 2 times. We reinforced it with another circle clip so it can't come undone. I had never even thought about the idea the clip could come undone, or a leash could break.

  3. Wow Lily, you are a strong girl. Stanzie broke the 'D' ring, right out of her leather collar once when a deer crossed our path.
    Good thing you are movin' up to the big girl leash!

    pee ese...this gives me a good idea for a post...

  4. YIKES!! That sounds really scary!! Hopefully the new leash works better!! Glad you are ok!!

    Hugs and Licks, Bruschi

  5. Holy cat crap! Our mom is always worried about that happening!

    Glad you are okay, Lily!

  6. Momma says her flexi snapped once when she was walking Angus the airedale and she FREAKED and wouldn't use one like forever after that but now she has started using one with PeeWee and I am going to tell her to upgrade to a stronger one for sure.


  7. Oooh, that must have been so scary. We wear those darn choke collars when we walk. Mom says she can't manage three flexi handles at one time,and the collars we have won't break.

    That was one very nice motorcycle man.

  8. Lily Lily Lily you musn't chase the motorcycles. Unless of course they're really cute guys in which case our mommy would like you to catch them and send them to her!

    No really, no chasin and givin yer mommy the attacks of heart and nerves. k?

    Bobo and Meja

  9. Oh Lily, how could you not have chased the motorcycle?! Personally, I love skateboarders. However, I'm a wee 13 pounds so I haven't been able to snap a leash yet. Better luck next time :)

  10. Oh boy!!! What a strong girl u is!!! Mom doesn't use does flexi things cause they give me a whole lotta distance to get a whole lotta speed, to put a who...um...yeah I thinks you gets da point. Hmm I shoudl try dat once

  11. I am not a fan of flexi leashes AT ALL. This is NOT the furst time I know of this happening.
    Glad that The Motorcycle Man stopped and held Lily. Whew! LUCKY...

  12. So gald this ended OK, I must say I walk George with a bog standered lead and change to the flexi lead when on open ground, it worries me that sometimes the catch comes off and if that was by a road, well I don't like to think about it.
    He has learnt that he can only run around when I have swapped the leads over, and knows its back to, no pull when the short lead is on.

  13. Hm, I haven't been able to break a leash yet, but I sure have come close to pulling moms arm out of the socket!

  14. Hola Chicos!
    We are so glad Lilly and the Moma are Ok, our mamma had a heart attack too, just thinking about it!! just give her the chills.
    Our Mamma says she does not trust us, we go crazy with motorcycles too,.
    We hope you new Flexi, is alot stronger,we love that pink color, you don't want to give your Mom another heartie attack.
    Spongy & Licky

  15. Kendra's broke, too. But that was because Bella kept biting it and pulling Kendra along. Scary that it could snap, though. Bella also chases anything on wheels.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  16. Boy that is scary, Lily. I'm so glad that you are OK. When we read the post title we were so scared for you!

    When I was about 6 months old I broke through a leather collar to go greet 2 big doggies. My mom person says I was very lucky that they were friendly.

    Nubbin' wiggles,

  17. OMG talk about heart attack city! Mom would have died on the spot! Thank goodness the motorcycle man held on to Lily until your mom got there.


    PS try not to give your mom another heart attack. Moms don't do well with that sort of stress.

  18. We are sure glad you are ok and so is Mom. You should not do that to mom. If she had a heart attack who would take you for a walk??

    Big Sloppy Kisses
    Gus, Louie and Callie

  19. OMG, we're sure your mom has a few white hairs after that experience! Thank doG you're okay, Lily!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  20. How scary! Glad you got a new flexy to handle your enthusiastic pulls!


  21. Thank goodness you're SAFE!!!!! That must have scared the daylights out of your mom. One of us breaking free is our mom's biggest nightmares. Or one of them, any way.

  22. Oh NO!! I bet MOm was scared but it is kinda funny!! Mine has broken before and I was Free for about 3 min!! BOL


  23. OMD So very HAPPY that you are OK Lil! DANG I JUST bet your Mom was upset!

    woo woos, Tessa

  24. Oh my, that sounds super scary. Thank goodness that all that resulted was a bunch of kisses. And thank goodness that the man loved dogs!

  25. Lily,

    YOu is bad to da bone my furiend! I am happy dat you is OK after all da excitments! :)

    WOofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

    PeeS Motorcycle men are great!

  26. *shudder* I'm glad you're okay, Lilly!

    We will NEVER buy flexi leads, for a lot of reasons, but one of the worst is that we've heard too many stories of hounds who get startled and if the handle gets dropped, they keep running because they're scared of the sound coming behind them.


  27. Oh no! Glad everything turned out ok. Mom says we're going back to our old leashes. Miss Shelby is way toooooo fast for us and Dad would have a COW if her's snapped!

  28. OMD!

    Lily Lily Lily

    Woo were furry furry lukhky!

    PeeEssWoo: My mom says her heart would still be RACING fur I would be still racing...

  29. Well, I guess I know what kind of leash we won't be getting, ever. I'm just glad Lily was OK and I hope Mom will fully recover in time.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  30. Oh Lily its not nice to scare your mom like that! Your new pink leash sure is pretty


  31. OMD, you must be very strong to have break the leash! You poor mom. I hoped you apologized and gave her lots of kisses! LOL

  32. OMD--lily~! LOL~!!
    i have that pink one too--but for the smallest dog. :P


  33. So glad Little lilly is OK!
    That must have been so scarey for you!

  34. Holy Cow!!! That was so scary we almost cried just reading it! We are soooooo glad you are all ok. No more chasing motorcycles,please?

    Emma Rose

  35. Oh-oh!
    Sounds like a very scary episode!
    Glad you are ok, Lily!
    Kisses and hugs

  36. My mommy is always afraid of that happening too,,, the thing snapping or breaking.
    I am so relieved to hear everything turned out okay, but this was a CLOSE CALL

  37. WOW!!!

    Ma gets worried when I pullk on mine and its for up to 80KG! I dont know what that is in pounds

  38. Oh, Lily, we're so glad you're ok.:) Love the new leash.:)

    Teddy Bear

  39. nice its pink!!!!

    glad you ok lil

    El'bow & Hauwii

  40. Those bad boys sure are heart/leash breakers.
    It is a wonder that your mom didn't tan your hide :) Just a saying of course. What a nice man to hold you until your mom could come and get yous.

    Kitty and Coco

  41. Yeah, they are not kidding about those weight limits for sure! Momma uses the 'belt' kind that don't hurt people's legs when they get wrapped around them too (why are peoples always getting tangled in leashes??). I don't think they are as likely to break unless the whole thing comes off the reel. One time I took off and broke the retractor part but was still attached to momma. She would have had a heart attack too. So glad everyone is ok!
