The Security Breach





Some of you may remember the "no-sibe zone" fence that the Momster put up this summer. You can read about it HERE. She had to take it down when the roofers were here in July, but she did manage to put it back up again when they were finally done cleaning up the mess she made. The fence is made up of a whole bunch of sections that she laces together with these cable ties.



She uses one at the top and bottom where two sections join together so that it makes the fence sturdier and prevents us from knocking it down. Well, since we hadn't even tried to go in the no-sibe zone, she thought she would skip putting the ties back on after the roofers finished because she knew there was more work to be done. There were going to be workers installing new gutters and downspouts, some repairs to the landscape areas, and a new paint job for the whole house. So rather than waste her time putting all those ties back on, she just set up the fence, knowing she would have to take it down or at least parts of it a couple more times. All was going quite well for her, and not so great for us because we couldn't figure out how to get in there. Well, not until ONE of us decided there was a way to do it.





Yep, Mr. Thunder Dunder has breached the no-sibe zone, and he has done it many times. He is the only culprit, and he has been caught red-pawed many times. Just in case any of you doubt this, here is video proof.






Pretty clever use of the body, eh?


"Where there is a will, there is a way. Yes, I could have easily jumped the silly fence, but I needed to conserve my energy for my hunting expedition."

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

Pee Ess, please ignore the dead shrubs you see and the patch of dirt. Those trees were totally fried by our summer heat as were many in our area. They will all be removed and replaced in the next few weeks as a new patio area just for us pups is going to be installed. Mom keeps saying something about no more muddy feet.

Thunder, are you part rottweiler? In our language NO means something like, well, see if you can do it without hurting anything... You could be an honorary rottie. We give nice kisses...

Wild Dingo said...

OH. MY. FREAKING. DOG!

sigh. (shaking head.) I'm not surprised. Sibes laugh in the face of barriers. I leave juno out at night while i watch TV and now and then i get the urge to "check" on her because i know she's capable of escaping anything.

Thunder, you do your breed good with breaching like that!

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Oh that's funny. A little squirty fence to keep you all off the garden. Actually we only have a squirty chicken wire fence to keep us in our whole yard. Don't tell mum but we like to stay in the yard. Its more fun. Hehehe.
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Maggie and Mitch said...

That was one slick move, Thunder! What a great spot for nap time when you don't want to be bothered!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Just Ramblin' said...

Too funny and very very clever! : )

Mango said...

Good job figuring out how to enter the no dog zone because seriously, who is going to do daily inspection if not you?

Slobbers,
Mango

Ruby and Penny said...

That is one smart move Thunder.
Love Ruby & Penny

Mack said...

TD looks mighty proud of himself!!

ArtemisiaFSS said...

Thunder we are so proud of you, we thinks you must be part cat. There is no such thing as a no cat zone. ~Socks, Artemisia, & Scylla

Being an obedient pup I would never go where I wasn't suppose to, unless the cats knocked the fence down first, then it is their fault. I stay in the kitchen and dining room with the baby gate just laying across the door until Scylla knocks it down BOL ~Fenris

It sounds like this (BAM) Mommy: Scylla!!! Hi Fen, did Scylla let you out? (Then Mommy is usually to lazy to put me up so I get to sit in the study on the carpet by her.)

Gus said...

Way to go Thunder Dunder.

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Didn't I tell you it woz just a matter of time, hehehehehe.

Mrs. JP said...

Great video! He's acting like he does this all the time. I was so sure it was Sweet Ciara who found the breach in fencing.
We use those zip ties lots.
OH,,,it did it again, they blinked at me. It must be the way my browser loads the picture or something.

Soggibottom said...

Smoothly done :-)
Wow, isn't young Lightening growing fast, what are you feeding her on :-) ? What ever it is, she's looking rather beautiful.

That will teach her to skip a step!

KB said...

Love the use of the body, and the way that the fence snaps back into place so that the momster can't even tell how you got in! Now, if you could just figure out a way to clean those red paws, you could sneak in without a trace!

Who'd have thunk that Ciara would be the goody-four-paws?

SissySees said...

Sissy actually has a command "Problem-solve!" I think SOMEONE could teach the class...

Benny and Lily said...

Good job Thunder, BOL

Seriously, that fence is 'chicken feet'. Escape artist is our middle name. Wahahaha!

Thunder - that was one smooth move!

Sarge said...

Hey Thunder!
Wow, great job of breaching the zone! I think it's important to remind the peeps that we can go where we want, when we want. You didn't dig up any shrubs in there, so what's the harm in visiting?!?
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Hound Girl said...

That is too funny!! That is totally Haylie - she kept breaking through my temp fence with zip ties, I saw her do it one day and was shocked! They are so smart.

sparkeespud said...

Just goes to show you that no barrier is totally "sibe proof". Welcome to the Houdini club Thunder!

Remington said...

My....you are amazing, my friend!

Barbara said...

Oh, I'm so glad I'm not the only one that has a "bad" dog!! :)

Sue said...

Good luck with that muddy feet thing!

I'm always amazed what a small space Tsar can squeeze his big body into. Of course, Tsar is 60% hair, but still.

jen said...

Ohhhh.......... Thunder you are so smart! but you went and got caught! darn it!

BeadedTail said...

Thunder, you are so clever to find a way into the supposedly No-Sibe zone! We can't wait to see your new patio area just for you!

The Thundering Herd said...

We certainly were not shocked at the security breach, but we were shocked, shocked, shocked at some suggestion of no more muddy paws. What is the point in that?

Tessa the Maltese said...

OMD!

Well Thunder, I thinks you need to change your name.

Yep, I do believe that the name...
SLICK suits you much better! BOL

woos, Tessa

houndstooth said...

How nice of the Momster to put a little mental puzzle out there to challenge you, Thunder! I figured Lightning was going to be the one who had breached the No Sibe zone, but I should have known better!

Piappies World said...

Way to go Thunder! You are so clever and we must say, smooth!

You just had to inspect the no sibe zone, right?

Who knew that sibes could be as slinky as kitties?

Anna the GSD said...

Fence?! Fence!?! We don't need no stinkin' fence!! BOL!!

And good thought mom, but there will ALWAYS be muddy paws!! MUWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! :)

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Thunder, I just love how you did that without wasting any of your valuable energies!

Frankie Furter said...

Super JOB THERE Thunder!!! I am very much PROUD of YOU!!!

Boondocks and The Love Shack Pack said...

Mom says she knows first hand that those Sibes are HOUDINI dogs!! There is no keeping them in or out of where they choose to be!!

That's telling 'em, Thunder!

AROOOOF!

Ms. ~K said...

Sorry, but I had to laugh...I gave up w/ fencing a few years ago. :)

Your Barberries look better than mine....I didn't trim them this year and they are a dried up mess!!!
Hugs and belly rubs to all!

Dory and the Mama said...

Go Thunder!! That was great use of energy conservation!!

Smileys!

One day, your mum will learn. One day.

Amber DaWeenie said...

Thunder....can you get any more sneaky? You got through without even knocking down the fence!

BOL

Zona said...

Thunder.... BOL!! I've been catching up on blogs, finally! After some sad posts, it was great to see your smiling, mischievous face! Love the new (to me!) header photo!

Wags,

24 Paws of Love said...

Very, very clever Thunder!! We love it!! We would have thought fur sure that that Ciara would be the culprit!!

Love that Sibe innocence!! :)

Stella said...

It doesn't surprise me to see TD doing the NSZ checking. After all, he is second in command and Phantom probably gave him his permission.

They get their OWN deck? All to themselves? Some spoiled pups is all I have to say.

Kisses,
Stella

Tweedles -- that's me said...

OH OH!
Someone got caught! I wonder who???

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

The problem was that momster challenged you with "No" instead working proactively as your team coach to accomplish a mutually desired goal... at least that's what the speaker at the seminar dad went to on motivating students would have said.

Linda said...

Just look at that sweet innocent face! Besides, someone had to make sure there were no critters hiding under those bushes!

scotsmad said...

Bravo Thunder! You showed them there's no such thing as a Sibe-free area.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

bichonpawz said...

Thunder is VERY smart! But HOW could anyone stay mad at that cute face??? xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

Honey the Great Dane said...

Just look at you, Thunder, strolling along as suave as you please! I think the CIA should recruit you! :-)

road-dog-tales said...

Well, if they're gonna follow you around with a video camera, might as well give 'em something to tape, right? And if they think it's cool enough to capture on camera, then it must be okay, right?
Can't wait to see your new private patio! Hmpfh... maybe you should make it a no-human zone. Just sayin . . .

Sagira said...

Thunder you are such a naughty boy. I love how he just takes his time and acts like he isn't doing a thing wrong, haha.
