When Net Wire Attacks!


We had an "episode" while my rent-a-husband, Dino, was helping me out this weekend. Dino and I were out in the pasture next to the house checking out the new baby Creme Brulee. I watched as Lil Man ran up and down the fence line whining cause he couldn't get in the pasture with us.
I would holler at him to go around but he didn't have a clue. Then I looked up and saw his head thru the fence. He put his head thru the net wire and was stuck. He started flippin' out so I ran over and tried pushin' his head back. Didn't work. Dino came over and tried turnin' it different ways, still couldn't get him out. So I told Dino where the plyers where in the truck and he jumped the fence to go get them. We had to cut the fence in order to get his head out!

Once freed, he was a happy pup. But I wonder about his intelligence cause not two days later, I saw him stick his head thru that fence again. This time, however, he got it out himself before I got to him.
It only took one hookin' for him to learn his lesson with the cows. He doesn't even step foot in the pasture when I feed anymore. But the fence lesson seems to be a harder concept for him to grasp. At least in a couple more weeks, there won't be any way for him to stick his big ol head thru that hole. That will be the end of that!

Face it, sometimes good looking and smart don't go together(LOL) He will figure it out besides he got lots of attention when he got stuck the first time...so maybe smarter after all

Those pups will do stuff that you wonder what were they thinking! It is scary that he could get stuck when no person is around to help rescue him!

Such a pathetic little guy!

Pony Girl said...

I'm glad he was okay! Silly puppy!! He's so cute, it's hard to be mad at him, I imagine! ;)

I thought it was cats that had 9 lives. Little Man may be giving them a run for their money.

Glad he's okay.

You'll just have to put him in the resource room until he figures it out. Oh sorry can't get school terminology off the brain. His cuteness makes up for any lack of intelligence!

Bigger heads mean bigger brains. At least that's my theory where Minky is concerned. Hope it pans out soon!

Hopefully he'll grow quick so he can't get stuck!

Sometimes Super Cute and Super Smart can't live as one!

Ask my Labrador, she is beautiful but dumb as a rock. Sad really...

Creme Brulee. Fabulous name!

Andrea said...

He was probably thinking, "Man, I fit through this last week!" Poor guy. He just wanted to be by his momma!!

Homestay Mama said...

Awww, poor thing! He just wanted to be with his 'mama!' LOL

Tatersmama said...

Silly boy ! Silly, silly boy !!
But by the time his head doesn't fit through the fence anymore, he'll just dream up more trouble to get into!

I had to laugh! Our Zig & Zag both did that at the same time- years ago...I panicked as Cowboy wasn't home and I knew he'd have stuck MY head thru had I not got those two girls released! Puppies!! The love of our lives...
