After work yesterday, I experienced a minor meer-akle. I got home, walked the dawg, and left him tied to the front porch, like always. I went in and got my stuff and came back out to take him snorkeling, and he was gone! I shrugged my shoulders and went to the beach without him. (Poor ‘lil fella!) When I got home, he was tied to the front porch again! A Meer-Ackle! He must have unclipped himself where the leash was attached to his collar, gone for a little run, come back and clipped himself back to the leash! I’da never thunk he coulda done it, but we hold these truths to be self evident.
(Or else I didn’t clip him properly, he got off, and a neighbor clipped him back up when he came home.)
Here’s a pic I took yesterday whilst snorkeling, click to enlarge.
