Don’t Fence Me In – Or Out

“But wait. How am I supposed to get over there? Usually I just go between the strands, but this fence is different.”dscn6756a

“What if I get hung up on that barbed wire?”


“I can see where I want to be, but … your leg is in the way of me jumping.”dscn6759a

“You’re kidding me, right? Okay, I’ll wind up and jump.”


“Was that high enough? But I’m still on the same side.”


“Okay, I’m sitting down like you told me. Now what?”


“Hoo-whee! Yowser!”


“All RIGHT! Let’s find those birds.”

      Last year our friends (who have a big dog) ran into this very problem. Little dogs are so much easier to manage. The one disadvantage is that they’re harder to see in the high grass, so this year we got a GPS tracking collar so you can always know how many yards out and in which direction your dog is. Even if she’s close, which she should be, it’s good to know where, in case she gets into trouble.

    Emma is so smart. She must have felt that those barbed wires could cause bad injuries. It was better to wait for the boss to help the lady over. I am still smiling, it was so much fun to see it all in a perfect row of pictures.

      You’re right. Last year Ruby went through a fence where the barbed wire was strung really tightly and she gave herself a rip in the shoulder that cost us many vet dollars and kept her from hunting for a few days.
