The Great Escape

What is so difficult for the 2-legged ones to understand?

I have a bed at The Farm. That's where I will hang out when you two decide to go village hopping, grabbing a bite, antique shopping, WHATEVER.

There is no need to resort to THIS. A travel crate. (Shown here in it's upright - "before" position)

Here is what it looked like when they returned after 3 HOURS of being left to my own devices.
Flipped on it's side - which by the way is NOT difficult to do if you have MY talents.

Unzipped. Yes - my people assist the blind - we can certainly figure out how to UNZIP something.

I was waiting - napping - right inside the front door. NOTHING WAS DESTROYED. I just didn't see the need to be confined. WHY is that so difficult for you people to understand?

Humans don't learn as fast as Golden Retrievers. You just have to be patient and just do what you're doing. Demonstrate the right way to do things and she'll get it eventually. The impawtent thing is to be firm and consistent. You'll get there.

We had one of those. It ended up being used as a toy chest until it got all chewed up :)

Your hoomies need to learn how to trust you. I hope they won't be confining you in crates again!
