This is such a cute picture. What a sweet little face and so peaceful. What can't be seen in this photo is me, sleeping just as hard. This dog is exhausting. She is non-stop all day long.
I owe an apology to the men-folk too. They were outsmarted. She is an escape artiste extraordinaire. Magnificent really. Today, I let her out and she showed me how she did it. I opened the door and she left. I was waiting for the old man to follow her out and he was being mopey and slow. Thirty seconds later, I realized she was nowhere in the yard. I whistled, walked to the gate and there she was. On the outside of the locked gate. I told her to get back in the yard and the little devil CLIMBED the fence. Like a monkey. Like a cat. Like a human being. Like she did nothing wrong-just business as usual. I am in serious trouble here.
She has outwitted me and may need to go back to a safer environment. I am admitting defeat in the face of such awesome prowess. There is no way I can get this girl to stop behaving like this. I am out a small fortune already which I don't mind spending. A new crate and toys and a visit to the Vet has tapped me. The sad thing is she is healthy. No heartworm. No fleas/ticks. Healthy, young and gentle. I'll be sick with worry each time she takes off. I don't think I can do this.........
I am open to discussion and ideas on how to keep such a beast in an urban environment. Does anybody have any ideas?
