Camera Critters - Silly Dog


You can play this at Camera Critters!

I've never tried to refer to my dog Sasha as being a smart dog. In fact, when people ask what kind of dog she is I tell them she is a Border Collie/Stupid dog mix. Of course we love her just the same!

Earlier this week she did something I KNEW had to be posted in Camera Critters! (Better late than never.. I got a slow start on the day.)

You see a couple years ago we got new living room furniture in a kind of off-white color. Sasha used to be allowed on the couch, but with her being black and the furniture being new and light colored, we didn't want her to do that anymore.

We thought about getting a baby gate, but those are pricey just to use for a dog, so I put my mind to work and decided to buy a cheap expandable window screen to block her way to the living room overnight. And it worked!

So, like I was saying, the other day I woke up and saw this. The screen was down. And she wouldn't step over it.

Silly dog.

That’s hilarious! Actually I’ve had a ‘baby-gate’ for DECADES that is in such rickety shape (after being abused by various puppies over the years) that Molly could easily knock it over and go wherever she chooses when I’m not here. The one and only time she actually knocked it down, she reacted in the same way as Sasha and wouldn’t walk over it. Dogs can be funny ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

We used to use a baby gate to keep my dog from coming into the dining/living room...except she would just jump over it without a second thought!

I think that makes her a very smart dog! She knows she's not allowed past that gate. :)

Sounds a lot like Seven. Not stupid, just cautious.

She's not silly! She's smart... you see... She knows that she is not supposed to cross the area where the screen is - therefore, she's being a good girl and isn't crossing. Seriously - would you expect anything different from me other than for me to defend her with all my energy?

I LOVE you Sasha!!!
