A Big Dog Retrospective: Big Dog Meets the Indoor Fence, Over and Over and Over Again

Big Dog: What is this thing?

Me: Funny you should ask. It’s an indoor fence. I bought it for you.

Big Dog: The thing is keeping me from looking outside.

Me: That’s what we call a feature not a bug

Big Dog: The thing is keeping me from looking outside.

Me: I got tired of you breaking the glass trying to get to the mailman.

Big Dog: I hate him.

Little Dog:  Her.

Big Dog:  Also, I hate the thing.

Me: You’ll get used to it.

Big Dog: I will not get used to it.

Me: Just give it some time.

Big Dog: Give it some time right now?

Me: No time like the present.

Big Dog: I will use my time to check on the kitchen garbage.

Me: Nope.

Big Dog: I will use my time to look for rats in the laundry room.

Me: Shhhh.

Little Dog: Also, there’s that other window…

Me: That’s a relief.

Big Dog: What is this thing?

Me: That’s the indoor fence.

Big Dog: The what?

Little Dog: We literally just talked about this.

Big Dog: The thing is keeping me from looking outside.

Me: It’s a feature not a bug.

Big Dog: I do not like the thing.

Me: Give it some time.  Maybe check to see if there are rats in the laundry room.

Big Dog: Good idea.  Going to look for rats, going to look for rats, going….

Little Dog:  My life is Waiting for Godot.

Me: I prefer Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.

Little Dog:  Good play.

Big Dog:  No rats in the laundry room today.  Say, what is this thing?
