  1. I’ve got two conflicting reactions to that amazing bit of dog genius:

    One side is the rock climber in me cheering the pup on. Great stemming technique in that “open book” corner! (And, like most unroped climbs, getting down is harder than getting up.)

    The other side of me is cursing the dog… As an architect, I design vet clinics, doggy day cares, animal shelters and such… In other words, I’m the prison designer who needs to out smart these wily inmates. (For their own good, of course!) Certain dogs are natural “escape artists” and it’s amazing what they can figure out and execute when they are bored and/or motivated! (In addition to not having the dog escape, I also have to make sure they don’t put themselves in dangerous positions like this guy’s 6 foot drop from the kennel roof. It looks like he made it without a problem, but dogs will panic and hurt themselves if given the opportunity!)

    Still, no matter how much you learn from experience (and security camera footage) there will always be that one dog that comes up with a new, novel technique!

  2. That was terrific. Mitch pointed out the boards at the top of the door as possible evidence that this was not Fido’s first escape effort. I would also note the brick on the corner of the roof that our little friend had to negotiate. But then, why would one train a camera (security?) on a dog pen in the first place?

  3. raff,

    I heard it through the grapevine that he and a buddy were on the run in Argentina.

  4. The boards at the top of the door tell me this dog has gotten very good at this escape business.

  5. enoibob:

    Sometimes I think we’d be better off with humans ruled by dogs than dogs ruled by humans.

  6. The two dogs in the background give me the impression that they are barking at one another saying,he said he was going but we didn’t believe him.When he finally drops down the third dog seemingly is sticking out its paw saying bye,bye.
