Oy! I always wondered how my little Ladybug got out! Now I know! How cute - just goes to show how smart these little buggers are! We used to call Ladybug Houdini because she always got out of her cage. After we figured this one out we zip-tied the bottom of the cage to the top - then she just figured out how to open it by the lever that closed the cage - teeheehee! :rotflmao:
I have the same crate as that. Day 1 Spencer broke the bototm pan, he has now broken 2 of the bars off and I now have them held on with zip ties. I swore that was actually Spencer when I was watching that.
That is so funny!!! The owners must have used a nanny-cam...or would that be a beagle-cam??!! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif
Another really funny video in that group is called Smart Dog Escape, I think. There are there 3 dogs lined up in cages, 2 Boston Terriers and a poodle-ish type, and one Boston gets out and then comes back and lets the other 2 out!! :roll:
My Sammy has a crate similar to that, and she has bent the bars enough that some of them are broke. We used keep her gated in the kitchen, but she figured out how to get over the gate. Now she is starting to figure out how to get out of the crate. The beagles are definatley very smart and determined.
Yes, our beagle brats are determined and smart - but all I could think of was how it could have been hurt trying to chew out of that crate - then watching it after the pan was removed - how easily a leg could have been caught and hurt. Guess I'm too practical to see much humor in it. My little rescue, Lottie, came to me with several teeth abcessed and/or broken due to trying to chew out of cages or fences - the vet said the teeth he pulled looked like they'd been scraped with metal. I'm sure that affected how I viewed it. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif
