Automatic Gate

Landon has submitted a requisition request for an automatic gate. Apparently, the manual system we have isn’t fully responsive.

Woe is me. Waiting on the humans.
Woe is me. Waiting on the humans.

Landon would like file a complaint about a lack of reaction from our human servants. The Boomster wanted to go outside and went to the gate from the deck to the yard, but it didn’t open.

The gate's still closed.
The gate’s still closed.

Hu-Dad’s response was “You just came in” and “I’m not opening that gate every thirty seconds” and “you decide—in or out”, but all Landon heard was blah, blah, blah.

I'm not listening to you.
I’m not listening to you.

Now you might think this is the end of this post, but Boom Boom might have been up to a little mischief after being refused his request. Or maybe he was being innocent. We’ll let you decide.

Up to no good? Or totally innocent? What do you think?

    My gsds love to go out and come in all the time. When it is cooler, I can leave the door open to the fenced in area and they let themselves out and in. When it is hot, then I am their servant. Yes it can be frustrating at times but I figure their lives are short enough and I can at least provide some entertainment besides walks and playtime. haha

    Landon’s such a teenager. 😉

    Having had huskies, I know he could easily jump that gate. Have any of them ever tried an escape?

      Fortunately, if the Boomster jumped this gate (and he could easily), he would just find himself in the fenced yard. That takes all the fun away.

        My goofball managed to scale a 6′ fence once. I think he scared himself. He was standing at the gate howling to get back in. LOL

    I see trouble in Boom’s future!

    I see two things. .. the last picture definitely trouble. But the second the last picture, it appears to be a variation of “talk to the hand aka fluff”

    UH oh-I THINK Boom Boom spilled that glass of wine to show his displeasure about the humans NOT responding to his request-lol
