As you all know, I've been having fence troubles, trying to get Koa and Heaven to stop pushing through the neighbor's fence. They got out once last week by digging a hold and tearing apart the fence while I was in the bathtub (they were asleep in their doghouse when I got in the bath.) Luckily they were still enclosed in my neighbor's fence, and luckily they didn't notice or call the cops this time.

Anyway, so once again, I repaired the fence. I'll have to do something about the digging now. I'm going to try chicken wire I guess. Just put it in front of the fence and hold it down with stakes, maybe bury it shallowly with dirt. They won't be able to dig if I do it right. Or I might get some patio bricks to lay down in front of there, or else just put up a wooden privacy fence once the ground softens.

So here I am watching them through the window.. and there goes Heaven just pacing up and down the length of the fence. Finally she starts whimpering and pushing her nose into it to find a weak spot to push through. That little sneak!! Koa was right along beside her. I yelled at them and they ran away so quickly like, "What? We weren't doing anything!"

Oh it's going to be a long winter before I can get someone to help me fix this thing permanently. :-X

Oh I always watch from my window. They had been really good up until this past weekend though, so I started to relax a bit, and not hover over them. I had fixed the fence, so they had given up on trying to get out (so I thought.) I swear they were asleep when I took my bath, and when I went to let them in... they were GONE! Luckily they were still next door. There I was in the middle of the night, 23 degrees outside... I'm barefoot with wet hair and a robe on.. chasing them back indoors. I've just about had it! But I have enough money saved up for the new fence. Just waiting for the ground to soften. They are always up to no good. Heathens, I tell you.

Sooo sneaky...I hate sneaky dogs! Clucht is real sneaky...he like to take colths, towels, blankets anything cloth into the backyard. He knows he is not spose to but I wil catch him looking around for me to see if I am watching him...then he goes to the dresser/counter/table/whatever and puts his nose up and grabs whatever he can in 1 sec. Then he bolts out the door with it as fast as he can....he thinks once he gets outside he is on homebase so he is clear. Just last nigh the 2 were in the backyard and they were making no noise (not good). So I asked Marc what are they doing...make sure eveything is on the table. he looked all was there. About a min later Scarlet comes running in and jumps on me...folowed by clutch. Then they run outside...the repeated this about 15 times. Finally I go look at what the hell is going on and I see Marcs pants ans his sweater in the back yard and it had been dragged in dog poop. hte minute I walked outside Clutch bolted behind the chair. The funny thing is I believe Scarlet was being a tattle tale...she was running in to me to get me to go look at what he had done. And when I caught him...I swear Scarlet had a smirk on her face!!!

Get a shock collor for the both of them and wire up your fence. This will keep them in. It works well with my russell. But then again they are bully's and I know they have a high pain tolerance.

I would debs, but they're always tearing their collars off, and those ones would be expensive to replace. (Not to mention not working when they are torn apart!)

They are just going to be little escape artists no matter what. I think if I put up a wooden privacy fence, it might take away from the allure of what's on the other side. We'll see.
