I learned that I could jump the fence once when I was outside and it started to thunder. I am so scared of thunder. I had to find a way to escape it and that’s when I found out I could get over the fence.
I have another problem when it thunders. I can’t hold it in. So my person makes sure I get outside to take care of business when it’s going to storm, but sometimes it storms and I haven’t been out in awhile. This happened once and she made me go outside in the thunder. In the thunder! Did you hear me? Thunder is louder and closer when you’re outside.
I wasn’t going to stand around for this, so I jumped for the fence. I had to get away. My person was next to me, but I almost made it anyway. But she grabbed me – she grabbed my foot. And she wouldn’t let go.
What could I do? I was stuck on the top of the fence and I couldn’t go over because she had my foot. Could you please let go of my foot? I’ve got somewhere to go you know.
She would not let go of my foot. Then you know what she did? She opened the gate. I was on top of the gate. Now she was facing me and she pushed me back down into the yard. Right off the fence. That’s a long way down. Then she closed the gate before I could run through it. Sometimes a dog just can’t win.
