Escape

One day while I was watching TV when there was a knock at the door. It was the neighbor from across the street. He asked me if Tramp was in the house. I told him he should be. But my neighbor replied saying I think Tramp is down the block. Sure enough when I went outside, there was Tramp/ Fortunately there was another neighbor hold him by the collar so Tramp would not get away. I thanked both of them and brought Tramp back inside the house.
The next day I happened to notice Tramp was not around the house. I looked all over the house, but Tramp was no where to be found. I went outside and looked up and down the block before I found Tramp in a neighbor's back yard. I was still trying to figure out how Tramp got out of the house yesterday and now he got outside. How he got outside remained a mystery until the next day I found out how Tramp got outside. When I walked into the kitchen. I looked over at the open door and saw Tramp, with his bod halfway out of the screen door. I went and grabbed Tramp before he could get outside. I then fixed the screen door to make sure Tramp never sneaked outside again. In this photo , you probably see how Tramp was trying to make the hole in the screen door bigger so he could sneak outside.

A very clever boy!! It's a good thing you figured out his escape route and nothing tragic happened because of it.

We have a sliding glass door to the back yard which I like to keep open when the weather is nice. I've taken to putting a baby gate in front of the screen, because otherwise Ben would just tear open the screen to get outside if he saw a rabbit or squirrel. He also scratches at the door if we're outside watering or mowing and he wants to be with me or my husband. So far we haven't had to replace the screen, thanks to the baby gate.

You may have to upgrade to the pet proof screens. Our cats ruined so many of our window screens, we replaced a number of them and they are really durable.

Pet proof screens work amazingly well! My dogs scratch on my screen slide to go in and out all the time, it still looks like new.

When I was in the hospital having my first baby, my husband came home to the across the street neighbors running to my house and pointing. Just as my husband pulled into the driveway, he could see one of my dogs half way through our dining room window screen, and the other two waiting in line. I don't know what possessed them, maybe they sensed all the excitement before I left. Be watchful of screen windows.

Oh my... that took me back to our Sammy!

In his case it was him running next door, digging holes in our neighbor's back screen door, and chasing their cats around the house. He did that a couple times. o_O He was a very bad dog that first year.

Years ago my elderly neighbor refused to have her lhasa spayed, so of course she would go in heat. There was this collie, who knows where he came from, that she would find in her house, he had broken the window in her basement and used to enter that way.
