Fall of the Berlin Wall

What can I say – my dogs are clever!  There is no keeping them out of an area that they want to “explore”. 

Last night Mr OL put up the barrier across half the garden to keep the dogs out of the area with the freshly laid grass.  This morning he got up and looked outside and what did he see?  Both dogs, on the WRONG side of the barrier, looking all pleased with themselves as if they had discovered new trick. 

That was when the shouting started I was trying so hard not to laugh, but it was a futile exercise.  In the end I put my head under the covers to try and smother the laughter.  

Daisy ran hid on her bed, Duke looked all innocent as if he did not understand how that had happened or how on earth to get back to the area that was supposed to be in.  He just sat staring up at us with big eyes, looking all sheepish and his tail wagging slightly. 

Mr OL decided that a “conversation” was necessary and called them both over and gave them a lecture (by this stage I had given up trying to hide my laugher).  He tried explaining that this was like the Berlin Wall before it fell and they were NOT to cross over.  Not sure if he figured the Berlin Wall was a good analogy because Duke is a German Shepherd?

Surrender?

  1. hanlie – Mr OL did not quite see the funny side.
    Damaria – I hope you have better results than we have.

  2. Your dogs are named after Dukes of Hazzard characters. Is this just coincidence or are your cats called Uncle Jessie and Boss Hogg?

  3. It is purely coincidence, but we did realise after we named Daisy. We were going with a hill billy or bad western theme – Miss Molly, Duke and Daisy. Our last cat added the alcohol needed for any hill billy family – Bacardi.

I would love to hear from you
