yes, basil is a butthole. let's not forget how the system comes with one collar, so i had to purchase a second collar.

but i love my dogs, so i'll do what i have to do to keep them safe.

My mom and I used Invisible Fence for our dog, and it worked out really well. He only broke through it twice in 13 years or so, during particularly frenzied moments involving some squirrels.

Some people say its cruel, but I think it would be worse to have your puppy hit by a car or eaten by a bobcat or something.

Also, my nihilistic teenage ex boyfriend -many, many years ago- put the collar on his younger brothers and sent them through to test it out when their family got one installed. They yelped a little, but said it was more of a scare than painful.

basil's a squirrel chaser, but the beauty of this system is that there's no wire, so if they "pass through" the perimiter it doesn't stop "correcting" until they come back in.

i don't think it's cruel at all. i think it makes them make a choice that doesn't involve me in any way, so it doesn't turn into a case of doing the right thing only when i'm looking at them.

i'm not excited about having to put it on and test it out, but i won't put it on them if i can't do it to myself.

there's also this new invention
called a gun
I used one on my mom's dogs
and they can barely walk now
let alone run away
what's the old saying?
A woman, a dog and a walnut tree
the more you electrocute them, the better they be
I remember one New Year's party back when I lived with
Brad and Cat and Pandice
we got drunk and carried the thing around
in the cellar where the signal wouldn't go
just make sure your dogs are drunk all the time
the better they be

drunk dogs would have to pee all the time. i think this will work for now, but i'll try whiskey if it doesn't.

The dog of one of my relative's neighbors in Tenn. used to psyche himself up to charge through the "shock zone." It was the strangest thing i've ever witnessed. They told me he went through accidently in a frenzy chasing a rodent of some sort and he then learned it was possible to be free again so to speak. So watch them boogers.

this one is wireless, so the "correction zone" is anything outside the circle. it keeps "correcting" them until they come back inside the circle. i love when the problem solves itself :)

This is why I need a stun gun and a ski mask...
