Our puppy is a thief and escape artist.

Annabelle is quite the mischievous little booger. She’s taken to stealing things like socks and shoes and placing them in random spots. Mind you, I’ve not found them chewed on, but they have been moved.

Today takes the cake, though. I went out back to call the dogs back inside and she was in the neighbor’s yard. Now keep in mind that our yard is fully fenced and Chloe has never been able to escape, even when she was Annabelle’s size. It’s a good thing she didn’t try and wander off somewhere else and stayed near the fence. This particular neighbor’s yard is not fully fenced and faces a busy major road, so this could have been disastrous.

I found the source of the problem: someone had pulled up a small corner of the fence just enough for a puppy to be able to fit through. I ended up having to lure her back to our yard with a Milkbone and close the opening off with some cut down tree branches until I can bring back the AAA Fence Master service to fix it, since they build it the first time..

This is way too much like having kids. Maybe everyone thinking about reproducing should get a puppy first.

    Having two dogs is crazy too, I’m sure you’d admit. We are currently dealing with sharing, and jealousy now that we have two. It’s so funny.

    Daisy is a sneaky one as well. She’s already learned that she isn’t supposed to eat Max’s food, so she’ll grab a mouthful but not chew it till she’s hiding behind the blinds or cuddle bag! Sneaky sneaky.
