O.T. got chased by a dog "HE NEVER GAVE UP"

Sorta silly but I kept hearing a large dog bark at people walking.  I continually felt like I was being sized up but couldn't figure out from where.

There he was on the other side of a barrier wall.  No sweat I continued with my purpose.

I tried to play peek a boo behind my truck.  I ducked down.  He started jumping verticle to see over the wall.

I went ahead and put my ladder up.  Next thing I know dogs climbing the tree.

Then ill be dag gone if he didnt use the tree to get over the wall then run my @$$ up the ladder

Then sat their evaluated the ladder and was going to climb when the owner came and got him.

    That is hilarious!  The only advice I can give you is stand and bang.  In my landscaping days the best medicine for aggressive dog was to meet them in the middle and control the situation, most times this worked.  One time a big ole standard poodle got to close so I burped the weedeater in its mouth.. It came back for more so I retreated.

    Very funny! Thankfully my boxer hasn't figured this trick out yet.

    May want to take a chainsaw with you next time you're in that neighborhood.

    Mine learned how to turn on a space heater as a pup. It was one of the small ones that you just hit on top like a snooze button. He opened a bottle of beer once also.

    Haha, They are such cool dogs. Always wanting to play or get into mischief.  I made the mistake of replacing all the door knobs with ADA levers. Nothing is safe now.My wife swears they taught the Mainecoons how to open them.

    The female that I had before him hated the vacuum cleaner. One day while I was at work she assassinated it by biting the plug off of the cord. Only one of many stories usually involving theft of food.

    Our youngest (2 year old Sealed Brindle) has the same issue. I can not have her outside when I run any of my power equipment. We have a fenced dog run off the back deck,so to keep the mud out of the house I made a 12 foot landing for the dogs to traverse when they came up on the deck. I bordered it with 6x6s and filled the inside with screenings(fine gravel) . Middle fawn would have nothing of that and proceeded to remove it all. 2 whole yards of it. Ya just got to laugh.

    @thetrim If your dog ever swallows something and you need it back immediately give them hydrogen peroxide it will cause them to vomit

    @thetrim

    We had our dog do the same thing. Try to get him to puke them up. Just pray none of the bones cut anything internally. He had some red crap for a few days and were fortunate it didn't require any surgery. Best of luck to you and your dog.

    With a profile pic on the head I could probably tell if he was full Boxer or a boxer pit mix. For instance.

    The "notch" right before the  eyes  is dead giveaway for a pure bred.
