Grandma and grandpas dog Buddy, the beagle, still thanks he wants to chase us. So when he's here we split up the time. Part of it we stayed locked up in Mom and Dad's room, the other part he's locked up in his crate which Mom covers up with a blanket cause if he sees us he starts barking. It seems to work out okay but Mom wishes she had time to work on his social skills and discipline training. She says he seems to be stubborn like a terrier or a bulldog. With them the training is about a stern "me human you dog". And have lots of treats.
Anyway to my story, today Grandma called Mom and said "you aren't going to believe what Buddy did today" Now Buddy got closed in fence for Christmas. That way he can come and go as he pleases. Plus Beagles will track a scent for miles and get lost. Well, they built the fence so it wouldn't allow access to the pool deck.
Grandma and Grandpas' back yard is slopped so the back of the pool which is not decked is about 6 feet of the ground. Well, some how not only did he figure out how to get on the pool deck but he was walking on the pool cover. Grandpa put all the lounge chairs up against the decked part of the pool thanking that would stop him from getting on the pool cover. It worked but then he walked a plank that was on the unfinished side of the deck, to the pool and proceeded to walk on the edge of the pool. Grandma said she looked outside and there he was standing on the section of pool that is 6 feet high! The edging is only about 2 feet wide! He's a dare devil for sure! Gotta keep an eye on that dog.
Mom told Grandma that "we might as well invest in that doggie ramp for sure now." They trained Diamond to go to the steps and climb out last year but Mom would feel better if there was a ramp. That way you know for sure that if they got in the water with out you knowing that they can get out.
Man! Those doggie sounds worse than brofurs!
Well it sounds to me like doggies like to be 'nosey' as mush as us kitties do!~ Buddy jus' wanna check things out! 'n Bein' a beagle, him really know's what him lookin' fur! Well, maybe!! MOL! We hope U all make it safe fur him 'n we shur wouldn't wantz fur him to fall in!!~A doggy ramp would be good, spawcially if him is gonna be's dat close to any pool area! Hmmm maybe him FENCE needs to be a bit TALLER!! Dem doggies, ya nefur know!!! Anyway's doggie's will be's doggies! O' course trainin' does take ample mounts o' time.
Purrs ' n kisses,
Mom so wants to get her treats near this doggie. Actually, she thanks the best training he needs at our house is me and my mighty paw. But right now she still doesn't trust him at all.
