Remember how I told you about Rocky pulling a Houdini, getting out of his harness without undoing it?
Well - I discovered how he does it - but only because he taught Tux how to do it too!
We were out on the weekend, enjoying the sun and a good book, when my neighbour walked by - it spooked Rocky and sure enough, he slipped out of the harness. I put him inside because he wasn't happy about the neighbours prescence, and went back to the chair to finish my chapter and let Tux have a little more outdoor time.
A few minutes later, I look down at Tux and he's working on his own Houdini - this is how they do it:
Tux positioned himself so he leash was taut, and running over his head - with a good pull, the collar of the harness slips right over his ears and off... he pulls his elbows in and the belly strap slides easily over front legs and head and voila -he's free.
They do it in one pretty swift motion -and I got to admit, it's pretty smart. I guess I have to see if there's any room to tighten that collar...
