The Fugitive

"thump, thump, thump" surprised Peter and me as he unlocked the door to the house after church today. The "thump, thump, thump" was coming from inside of the house.

"Is Lily out?" Peter asked.
"Shouldn't be" I replied.

The dogs are crate trained and are never, ever free to roam the house when we aren't home. It was at that exact moment that Lily's face flashed across the front door. The "thump, thump, thump" was Lily's tail beating against the wall. Lily has a unique talent for breaking out of her crate. She learned how to open locks so we added a carabiner. She learned how to bust open the bottom of her crate so we moved the carabiner. Evidently, today she learned how to bust open the entire front side of her crate; looks like we'll be adding a second carabiner.
