Well the little rascal gave my husband quite the story to tell me when I got home from work. He told me that he had taken the girls for a walk, and stopped of to say hello at a friends house. He went inside leaving the girls tethered outside. when he returned 15 minutes later Casey was their and so was Hunter's harness, but no Hunter. She had gone to the side door of the house to wait for him. Now I would really like to know how she managed to get out of her harness, as it fits quite snug. Maybe we should have called her Houdini /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

How lucky she came to the side door. Our Brandy unnoticed ate thru part of her harness three weeks ago and when we were walking she sprang free. It was dark and off she went. Richard put out dirty t-shirts around the property and headed out in the truck looking and calling. I grabbed Cecil and we went thru every shrub, thicket and wooded area around. Cecil and I walked six miles in total. She got on Brandy's scent one time and started the baying she does when she is on a rabbit. It was on a neighbor's property behind us; however, she got side tracked. To make a two hour search short, Brandy walked into our next door neighbor's garage for a visit. Darn if they didn't play with her for a half hour before tying a rope to her and bringing her home. We were scared since it was at night. Richard just knew she was gone for good, but thanks to our walks in one certain area, when the girls escape, they turn up somewhere in that area. Thanks to good neighbors, big neighbor dogs, God and luck, we have always found them. Glad your story was a good one.

I'm glad Hunter didn't go very far! They can be excellant little escape artists! In the vehicle I put Caesar in his harness then I have this thing that attaches to the harness then to the seatbelt. This way he can sit up front with me instead of the back of the SUV. One day I went to pick up my Mom because the 3 of us were driving down to Calgary. Naturally my Mom gets the front seat so I attached Caesar to the back middle seatbelt. I was a block from home when he jumped up into "his" seat beside me. How did he do that??? Unfortunately after that he had to stay in his kennel.

Good luck keeping Hunter in her harness!

I'm glad to hear that she didn't wander too far. My Amber's littermate was like that. My cousins (Amber's mom was my Aunt's Beagle) called him Houdini. They had a box with 5 foot sides and at 6 weeks old he was still getting out. It's amazing what a Beagle can do when they set their minds on it.

Janna, getting out of the harness is very easy. I saw it with my own eyes the very first time Boeing did it. We came back in from our late afternoon walk and I tied his leash to a tree. I went into the house to get his towel and when I came out, the little guy was struggling out of his harness with butt pulling hard. Then the locked strap on his shoulder folded over. Out came his head and then his two front legs!! That strength was really amazing!! Once he learned the trick, I had to be more careful from then on.

It was a good thing Hunter didn't wander off /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif .
