Barney and the
June 22nd 2007
What a bad start to the
day, I was woken up early and could hear Barney crying and thought
the very worst!
Well, was nothing like I
When I got to the kitchen back door he was stuck half in and
out of the flap in the back door!
In the last five years Barney has been with us as Rescue he has
never tried the flap, my Berners who grow up here as pups have used
it from the first and managed the trick of getting in and out no
problems, this was a first for Barney!
And he got stuck in a big way, couldn't get out or back in!
Somehow he had managed to scrabble with the one paw outside,
loosen the bottom end of the flap outside and had made it even worse
as he had head and one leg out and one leg trapped between .
Thankfully, I had a Phillip's Head Screwdriver to hand and went
out the front door and round to the kitchen door and was able to
unscrew the bolts on the flap and set him free!
"Phew, thanks Jean!
Sorry, I woke you but I was only trying to get out for a much needed
"That's better, now
can you get me out of this contraption!"
It was hooked around him
and one leg inside, thankfully, a handy pair of secateurs cut
through the flap to free him up completely
This Boy is on diuretics for his cardiac tumour, recently I had
been leaving the back door open for him but the past week have had
storms and torrential rain! Guess he just did not want to wake me!
Now he just has a big hole in the back door to come in and out
of no problem! Hmmm!
