Our Lab-mix Sugar tore apart her kennel about a month ago. When I arrived home that day, she calmly met me at the door…as though this was the normal routine. At first I thought someone had not latched her kennel correctly…then I looked at the kennel.
I still don’t fully understand how she managed to bend the front portion of the kennel enough to squeeze herself to freedom. I especially don’t know how she did it without hurting herself.
Sugar will be 2 years old soon. She is extremely well potty trained and for the most part doesn’t chew anything but tissue paper and the occasional advertisement. So we decided we would allow her to be free in the house during the day while we are at work. Its going well…our furniture is still in one piece and no holes have appeared in the dry wall.
Now, for the photo explanation….Every morning, after all dogs have completed their business in the backyard, I tell them to go bedtime. Everyone has their place to go….well, everyone but Sugar. She still goes to the place her kennel was a month ago. She stands there for a few minutes…until she realizes it is no longer her “bedtime” space…then she casually walks away as though she was just messing with me!
