So this is weird...I came home last night and when I pulled up in the driveway my dogs greeted me at the car. Naturally, I just assumed my wife had
beaten me home, but when I opened the garage door her car wasn't there. **shrug**. Then I went around to the front door and had to pull out my keys
to unlock it. That's when it hit me. How the heck did the dogs get out?????
It was a warm day yesterday, so I'd put them in the garage where they like to hang out. When I got home they were outside, just running around. I
specifically remember putting them in the garage because it was the first time in about a week or so. It had been too cold before that.
Now, the Australian Shepard, Rhode, knows how to open a door, but usually only a door with a lever for a knob, but not an actual door 'knob'. The
back door into the garage has a knob, and usually has the dead-bolt thrown, but yesterday it was unlocked. The front door was locked, as was the door
from the garage to the house (because that's the only way you can keep Rhode from letting himself in and getting into mischief).
I looked around, but nothing was out of place or missing. We live far out in the country so someone would have to be pretty ambitious to walk here on
foot, and there were no cars around. I grabbed a pistol and drove up to our out-building and checked it out. Everything was fine. Then I set about
looking for tracks. Didn't see any footprints in the snow or the mud.
So how the hell did the dogs get out??
