Be Careful What You Wish For--You Might Just Get It.

So, this morning I'm complaining about the dog's nocturnal breakouts, and concluded "why can't she do it in the daytime, when she's easier to find?"

Yup. She did it again. This morning I found her in the next door neighbor's back yard, but she outsmarted herself, because they have a nice solid wrought iron fence in concrete footings all around their yard except on the common side where my chain link fence is between us. She couldn't get back, but she couldn't get out to anyplace else either. I examined the fence line very closely and concluded that this terrier climbed a tree and went over the top (some low stobs on a hackberry along the fence acted like steps). I have now chopped and sawed those branches and any others that might remotely support her from the fence line.

She is such a nice dog, but she's beginning to get annoying.
