Out of the Blue

The Gunnar-man started limping the other night; he had no cuts or any such thing, so we tried to keep him from being too active to further aggravate what seemed to be a minor sprain. This is not easy with Gunnar, who is sort of a cross between Tigger from Winnie the Pooh and Rocky the Squirrel, as he tends to jump up and down when excited (his standing vertical leap is easily three feet) and fly off the back deck or front porch when we let him out. He seems better now, so we'll put his injury to the test today, as the dogs are climbing the walls after two days without getting out for a run on the doggie trail.

A three foot vertical leap? Really?

Back in the day we used to put some really old "child fences" at the doorways to some of the interior rooms to keep our young puppies at bay when we'd have company that didn't like dogs or repairmen that couldn't be bothered.

The oldest one was at least 2 feet (perhaps 2.5) and the pups would jump over that with ease.

We had a newer one that was 1/2 to 1 foot taller (probably 2.5-3 feet total) which they managed to jump every now and then. Granted they needed a running start but they did it every now and then.
