You know that Oscar is afraid of his own shadow. I had been playing with him in the living room downstairs. After a while I put him back in his little fenced area but he was still pretty full of energy. He isn’t supposed to go behind the recliners because there are cords and things back there that he will chew on.
This morning I went through a box of cords, trying to figure out what went with what. The ones I couldn’t match up to devices, I rolled up, like you would a water hose, and stacked them behind the recliners. I was going to bring down some velcro ties and put around each cord to keep them from getting tangled and put them in a tote labeled “Misc. cords”.
I opened the gate to Oscar’s fenced in area and he ran out and was able to get behind the recliners. Before I could get to him, he had managed to get himself tangled up in a couple of the cords and came running through the living room like “HELP ME!” He couldn’t get out of the circle and they were wrapped around him, loosely, and the more he ran, the more they came unwrapped and turned into a bigger mess that was snuggled around him. He kept looking back and the cords were following him but he was running like a race horse trying to get away from those cords.
I started picking them up and thought . . I should get a picture of this to show Vince.
I think Oscar was one happy little puppy when I grabbed him and the cords stayed behind. I would love to think he’s learned his lesson and will not try to sneak behind the recliners but . . he’s a puppy!
