Restraining Genghis is proving tricky, however I hope we have finally got this electric fence thing sussed. It was a bit of a problem when Bill was toiling to construct this fence to keep Gingernuts in and we realised it was actually too late and he was already gone! Oops.
Once recaptured and the fence in place we let him out, safe in the knowledge that he couldn’t possibly get away now. Minutes later he’d somehow barged straight through the old fence, evading the electric wire entirely and was happily gamboling down the road again. GAH!!!
Fence patched, electric wire lowered a tad and third time lucky? I was watching out of the office window and saw Genghis sneaking off to the bottom of the yard. He took a running leap at the fence and, intent on escape, used himself as a battering ram. However, instead of forcing his way through and wriggling to freedom as he so desired, he hit the wire, squealed, jumped really high into the air and did a sort of back flip before racing back into the house looking for me. He didn’t leave my side for several hours after that!
All this morning I’ve had the doggy door open and Genghis has spent his hours happily messing around outside. I think I’ve heard a yelp every so often but he seems to have got the message and is behaving himself at the moment. I guess we just have to wait and see if this lasts now.
