I, like most pet owners, think that my children are smart, clever, and intutive. They pick up tricks easily enough and demonstrate their wits on a daily basis via obedience, or lack thereof. Clearly there is something going on upstairs, so I never question their abilities.
That all ended yesterday. We are having a screen enclosure installed over the new pool and Mason and Karly just can't seem to get the hang of the fact that THERE IS A SCREEN at the edge of the patio. They have both run into it, head first at a trot...twice. This is only day 2 of having a screen, so it looks to be long week.
I guess I shouldn't be too disappointed in them...a squirrel got trapped in there this morning. Damn screens... how dare they be all screeny and everything...
