Graceful Exit

All humans with dogs understand this – Let us out so we can come in so you can let us out. And, with Typhoon, we have a graceful exit.

Let us out! Let us out!
Let us out! Let us out!

As we have mentioned before, our yard is divided so that the seniors have a nice, quiet place to nap and enjoy. The juniors, meanwhile, can wrestle and play to their hearts contents in “their” yard. (And a simple opening of a gate creates one big yard when requested). To get to “their” yard from the bedroom, the juniors cross through the great room, into the kitchen, and outside. With all of those wood floors, you would not expect a certain young dog to turn this into a game, would you?

Look! No paws are touching!
Look! No paws are touching!

Fair enough, this makes a perfect Film Friday, so enjoy a “Graceful Exit:”

    Mom sez: That’s like our IceMan on our dining room laminate floor. For that reason, he refuses to go any further into the dining room than possible with his back feet still on the carpet.

    Ah yes, working from home. Out-in-out-in.

    It’s so hard to run on wood!

    It does remind me of my boy.
    I have a fenced in back yard and a deck in the front with a bed. He cannot get off that deck.
    Rebel will come in one door and run right to the other and slips and slides on the wood floor in the living room on the way. Love all your photos, videos and stories.
