Canine Criminal Minds
This is what I came home to at lunch last week.
If you will notice, this is not our fenced backyard, but rather our front doorstep. How did this happen?
And Bo was kind enough to do a reenactment.
If you will recall, from a previous post, this is not Gus' first break out. See The Escape Artist. I believe they must have worked as a team. Bo, the little one, was the brains of the operation. He would sniff out the right fence slat for weakness like the guy who tells you where to drill for oil. Gus, was the brute strength. He just butted up against the chosen fence slat until the old nail was forced to surrender. And viola.
Well, this is what it got them. Behind bars for the rest of the day.
Repeat Offender & Seasoned Criminal: Gus Perot
The Rookie: Bogart Perot
As you can see from the mugshots, Gus has the look of a hardened criminal. Bo, is giving me the eye and licking his chops as if saying "When I get outta here...". In addition to community service, they will be required to watch SPCA videos of all the dogs who are homeless and hungry. Hopefully, this will change their attitude.
In the meantime, I think we will be investing in a new fence soon.
