This. Is what happens when you accidentally leave two doors open: Your bedroom door and your adjoining bathroom door, leaving them to the mercy of a small terrier puppy, still the intruder two months on. It also helps if you possess the leg reflexes of a greyhound and have the speed of a champion racehorse. Both of which, I do not.
This dog can run about 4 times the average speed of a human (we won’t talk about how I had to stop traffic about a block from my house — and by traffic I mean I first had to run in front of a big rig — for 30 minutes to catch the bloody thing because my 4-year-old accidentally let him out). And, he has hydraulics in his hind legs, to boot.
I think the addition of the sock was genius. The dexterity that took to grab it from the hamper on the way in is just incredible.
