This time I made my move right out the front door. But I couldn’t do this just any old time. Front doors are hard and not possible for a dog to bust down. Even Super Dog can’t do it.
So I have to wait until my person opens the door.
When my person is walking out the door and I’m in the house her back is to me, and she doesn’t have a clue what I’m up to.
So now’s my chance. Quick, run right past her and out the door as fast as I can and out of her reach.
Then comes the fun part.
I have to stay just far enough away from my person so she can’t catch me. Twenty feet is usually good.
Then when my person starts getting close I move another twenty feet away.
Most of the time I let her catch me after we’ve gone around the block. But I have gone up on my trails and made my person hike after me.
Unfortunately, my person caught on to this trick too. Now she walks out the door backwards so she can keep an eye on me. Maybe she’ll trip and I can get out anyway.
And she sometimes joins forces with my younger person when he’s around. Especially when there’s thunder and I really want out the door.
Oh the life of a dog. It’s so hard to keep one step ahead of my people. Time to come up with something new.
