Houdini Dog

This innocent looking dog is our black Lab, Dakota. Dakota usually spends his days playing with our Border Collie/Lab mix Sierra, sleeping, and walking with my DH. But this weekend he became...drumroll, please...Houdini Dog!!!

Dakota learned how to "climb" over the chain link fence at the bottom of the hill. Our neighbor Bob found Dakota frolicking in his back yard. And returned him to us. My DH put barbed wire along the fence top, but Dakota learned to avoid it and was back in Bob's yard. So my DH put even more barbed wire and Houdini Dog has retired. Silly boy.

Happy Friday, friends and family~~~God bless and keep you all. And God keep protecting silly dogs. Amen.

OOOO a houdini dog! Barbed wire...yikes!!!
I am sorry you have been too. I guess that must be the reason Iris chose "gentleness". The Lord MUST be trying to help me out! But it sure can get frustrating!!!

LOL...I love this story. We once had a beagle who learned to climb our chain-link fence. He was out scouting the neighborhood on a regular basis ;)
Let me in on how your opening went~gotta get the scoop!
Luv ya!
