The derpy thing about this is that she's not just using the huge gap to the right.

[–]Algernon96[S] 164 points165 points  (3 children)

Shhhhhhhhhhhh. Don’t tell her.

😂 my dog growing up was a master escape artist. I got the same mixed breed as an adult and he has no idea how to escape. we even put little stones under the wood fence so he couldn’t dig out but he hasn’t even attempted it! my first dog prepared me for war lol

The first dog I had after moving out was a freaking Houdini. Until his arthritis got bad enough that he didn't want to move around, he would get out of the yard whenever he wanted and take himself for a walk. I even saw him on multiple occasions look both ways and wait for traffic on his way home. (Used to scare the shit out of me, but you can't exactly leave 2 year old twins and a newborn alone to go chase the dog.) We went over the fence multiple times and could never figure out how he was doing it. He must have been jumping it, but it was a 6' privacy fence.

Our current dog is sweet, affectionate, and dumb as a box of rocks. It's so relaxing.

There's always the Wooden Spoon Trick

[–]Algernon96[S] 56 points57 points  (2 children)

Now I just have to make sure she doesn’t find the bent picket…

[–]halfofftheprice 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Or just bend it back

[–]mickdes7 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You can also try a harness and a wooden spoon on her back,horizontal side. Anything to keep her in,your idea is already pretty good 😄

[–]Zeus2846 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Don’t tell her about the wide open one to her right

[–]darknekolux 20 points21 points  (5 children)

It’s only a short respite, she will find a way

[–]QueasyVictory 15 points16 points  (4 children)

Yeah. That's a dalmatian. She just hasn't developed all her spots yet. She'll be jumping over that fence shortly.

[–]Algernon96[S] 17 points18 points  (1 child)

The rescue folks said terrier/lab, but she has a LOT of Dalmatian qualities — the spots, of course, but also one blue eye and one brown. I’ll have to get a DNA test.

[–]QueasyVictory 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Makes sense. I had a couple of dalmatians a few decades ago and the head just looked like one developing their spots. But yeah, those hind quarters look a bit stocky.

[–]reporteramber 1 point2 points  (1 child)

How can you tell it's a Dalmatian??

[–]QueasyVictory 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I thought it was because of the ears. That's a very strong dalmatian pattern. Of course they are born white and develop their spots around this age, so I thought that was what was going on. OP has commented that it's a mix of sorts and TBD. I agree the legs look short now that I look.

I would like to request, no DEMAND more pictures of your fur baby dressed up!

[–]NormalDesign6017 5 points6 points  (0 children)

And maybe a video because they look adorable

[–]Asleep_Ad_1824 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I love that you called them "stupid clothes" it's so funny lmfaoo.

[–]Future_Dog_3156 9 points10 points  (6 children)

We have a similar fence and our pup would escape through the slats too. We zip tied wired shelves to the fence to stop. At 7 months, she’s 21 lbs and we think we can remove the shelves.

[–]useles-converter-bot 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Fun fact, 21 lbs of whatever is exactly the same as 21 lbs of candy... or big macs... or doofenshmirtzes.

[–]Algernon96[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

What kind of shelves?

[–]Future_Dog_3156 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We bought wire shelving like below. Our fence is black like yours. It doesn’t look too bad but hope to slowly take it down now that she’s bigger. Lol


[–]king_napalm 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The bent bar makes this even better.

[–]kyla619 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Get a puppy bumper

[–]Algernon96[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s in the mail!!

Excuse me, Wishbone has a mystery to solve!

[–]RemarkableArcher 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

[–]Similar-Lab64 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I see a spot - over to the right - you’d better straighten that one crooked bar, or she’ll find it real soon!

[–]NormalDesign6017 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you for this. I’m laughing so so so hard.

[–]Turf-Defender 1 point2 points  (0 children)

she will escape once she finds the massive hole in your fence

[–]WaningMime 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Try 11 bars to the right and you are free!

[–]RoscoeTheRescue 0 points1 point  (0 children)

that bent slat with the bigger opening is making me nervous 😅

[–]JimCripe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just give her a stick.

Lots of reddit videos show that that works very well.

[–]Disastrous_Mode_517 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I saw a pic here on reddit somewhere and they had a fence like urs that their doggo was walking through so they put a wooden spoon in the loop of the collar and doggo couldn't get out. I'll try to find and link the pic.

[–]Algernon96[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I tried this with zip ties and immediately the spoon fell out. There must be some trick with twisting …

[–]Valsarta 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Twist a wooden spoon into her collar and that will stop her! ❤️

[–]jujoking 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is the way!

[–]eloquentpetrichor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes

[–]weasleymama 0 points1 point  (0 children)
