Scar Escapes!!! (Again)
June 23, 2019 6:55pm CST
So I just got back from Wally World...had to go buy another lead for Scar. I think this is the 7th or 8th one in the past three years. He normally sticks his head in the door every 5-10 minutes to check on me...unless he is napping on the porch...and I hadn't heard him for a few. So I looked out expecting to see him stretched out on the porch...and all I saw was the end of his lead. So I went searching...5 minutes later found him down by the railroad tracks dragging 25 feet of lead behind him. These leads get a crack in the plastic coating, and the wire in them starts rusting...I noticed yesterday this one was getting worn and was planning on getting a new one at the first of the month. But nope... At least this time I found him before he lost the collar the lead attaches to...last time he did it, he came home several hours later with no lead or collar on him. Brat. I may have to get a log chain for him.

I had this happen with my dogs, also. Ted and Brandy would one minute be laying in the yard. Five minute later, I would see one of them running past the house! These were my two dogs, when the kids were still living at home. Teddy lived to be 14 years old and I had Brandy put to sleep, when she was nine. Every joint in her body was crippled! At a hardware store, they sell all thicknesses of chains. Maybe a thin chain would keep Scar from getting loose.

i've been tryin' to work with the resident cat here to put'n a halter (kitty halter, not a horsey'un) so's i can try 'er out'n a lead. she so wishes to be outdoors (used to be in/outdoor kitty) 'n yet i fear fer 'er safety. i'm thinkin' screenin' the back porch'd be a better ways to go coz she's havin' none 'f that halter thingy. (very sharp claws'n teeth...) i can jest see mr. scar out there with that big ol' heavy chain. 'fter a few weeks he'd look 'kin to a lil body builder, lol.
