is about to be made to wear one of those inflatable tube collars, just to keep him from escaping everything. He can squeeze through the babygate we keep on the hall. He can squeeze through the gate that separates our front yard from our backyard (leading to fun "which door is Nog at" games) and now he can squeeze through our front gate too. Today in the 1 1/2 minutes he was out(I had to pee!) he was sitting in the driveway, waiting for me We do not leave our dogs out for extended periods, but Goose is a shy pooper, so we've always been able to send them out without having to stand there staring at them.
