    In anticipation of age-related infirmity Czarina had all the inside and outside doors built to wheelchair width (really worked out when she broke her leg) and flipper instead of knobs on the doors. Seems Lucky, the only one, has figured out that getting up and flipping the handle gives him access to any room that’s closed. Now whenever we go outside and don’t want him to come we have to lock the doors with a key. We’re being very careful with the refrigerator.

      My friend has a master bedroom with double doors and “flipper” door handles. Her cat figured out how to open the door so that she could sleep on the bed, so my friend put a rubber band around the handles so that the doors wouldn’t swing open. Well, the cat was still able to get in, but the doors swung closed behind her, trapping her in the room. Not much improvement!

        We succumbed to the ‘cat inevitable’ thing years ago. Two dogs worked on the swinging baby gate we put on the bedroom doorway to keep all of the dogs out…stilllllllll working, but then they’ve got time,

          I have a gate between the kitchen and dining room to contain the dog on either side, depending. It has vertical slats, so he can’t get a toe hold, but I saw him climb it anyway one day when he was particularly determined to get out of the kitchen. It’s about two feet high. It works most of the time.

            ‘Works most of the time’ seems to be the goal we’re stuck with. It’s almost as if they think these barriers are some sort of enrichment exercise we put up especially to entertain them.

              The gate I used to have there was plastic, with holes all over the surface. He could climb it like a ladder.

                One of the Goldens we had climbed chain link fence like a ladder. This after he finally destroyed a cedar fence we had hoped to get more life out of. He chewed a board off, my husband replaced it. He kept moving down the line. Finally husband resorted to chain link fence around the back yard. He started digging under that. My husband bought tie downs. He pulled them out. Husband then took huge rocks and placed around the bottom of the fence, and the dog then just climbed the fence.

                At that point my husband went into the house, got a beer, and turned the TV on. The only time ever I’ve seen him get bested in all these years.

                We have a steel one that fixes in the door but swings open. Lucky sat down next to it, watched us and then started to work at it. He got it so we tightened up the latch. He can’t seem to be able to pull hard enough to overcome the increased friction in the latch but he’s eyeing my propane torch and Sawzall when he’s in the garage.

            My friend has a puggle who will pee in her extra room (luckily she has tile one the floor). She used to leave the door open because the cat liked to sleep on the bed in there (probably why the dog wants to pee in there). We put up a gate that was almost 3 feet high, I believe that had a small cat door in it. The dog is too big to go through that door, but somehow got in the room and back out. I know she had to jump over that gate.

            Border Collie can jump a 6 foot fence with no problem! The only way to keep her contained is with big crate backed up with hardware she can’t open with tongue!

      We once rescued a chocolate lab. He was goofy, the dopiest dog we ever had. But he could open doors like that. The other dogs, instead of just doing it themselves, used to go get him and line up behind him to come on in.

      We had a female Golden Retriever. She was not only alpha of the pack, which she took to include us under her rule, of course, but the most dominant doge I’ve ever known. Bo, the lab, used to take his huge paw and slap her across the rump. She would go for his throat and put him down, and he’d be grinning, tongue lolling out of his mouth.

      I miss both those dogs. A lot. Now they are across the bridge, and Bo is slapping Katie, and she’s just short of tearing his throat out. He will wait maybe an hour before he does it again, and grins that huge sloppy doggie grin.

        When we got Daisy the Border Collie I was nervous about introducing her to Zauber. He’d see her thru the glass doors and light up…so I decided to put up a baby gate in the hall, which Z would never cross, and let her in.
        She walked in…they both stared at one another, and she jumped the gate. She immediately cowed and, over the next week, pulled out the huge ruff/mane he had around his neck – never did let him grow it back.
        He was about twice her size and they played together endlessly but from “HI, howareya” she ran the house and him.

        because they came home to their people who loved them and who they loved.

        some people need to learn that kind of devotion, I think.

        we have all lost our various non human family members, and it was very very hard, and we still miss them. but we shared with them, and them with us…and Today, I feel gratitude to a Loving God that send some of his best to be part of my life. I thought they were difficult sometimes, but other times I snuggled and played with them when no one else wanted to play or snuggle…kids grow up and leave..but the furry lovies stay with us until it is time for them to take the rainbow bridge journey.

        I took a message of hope and love and tenderness from the movie…sure, it was saccharine sweet and sorta silly…but i thought it was a good Thanksgiving message.
