Our back fence is not made of the best quality. We had an ice storm about 6 years ago and our fence took some ice and was damaged. We got some insurance money but with our deductible and everything we didn't really have enough to get everything we needed fixed so the fence was still standing so that was the thing that was put on the backburner. Well my dog is slowly (like 6 years slow) finding some of the weaknesses of the fence and becoming a modern day Houdini. In the last few weeks she has gotten out some 3 or 4 times. Every time she doesn't stray far because she knows where her bread is buttered but it's getting really annoying. So we have decided to keep her on her leash while she is in the backyard. It's one of those retractable leashes so she can still roam the yard but she is ticked! She just sits facing the door and barks at me. I think it's pretty funny. We are planning on going to Lowes sometime in the near future to get a fence installed but until then I guess we are going to have to take the necessary precaution to keep Freckles in the yard!

I have a runner dog too. He gets pissed if we put him on the leash because the other 2 dogs don't have to be. But it's his fault. He should learn to stay in his own yard!
