The Joys of A Dog Door

September 13, 2010

We’ve been in the house for about two weeks now.  I knew this was coming.  I was hoping it would take a little bit longer, but alas it was not to be.

The girls have discovered the joys of the dog door.  They are playing with the lock on the back door (safe, I know, but it’s funny to listen to).  The Little One locked the back door using the small keys for the chain on the gate while the Big One was inside.  They are thrilled that the little keys worked ( I am not so happy about that!) So the Big One says, “it’s okay I can use the dog door.”

To which the Little One starts laughing  and says, “DO IT!!!”

The next thing I hear is the Big One grunting and the flap on the door opening and closing. Meanwhile the Little One is cheering, “You can do it, you can do it, you can do it!! YAY!!”

So now they are taking turns locking each other out and crawling through the dog door.

Each time someone successfully makes it in or out of the house, they cheer, “We did it!!” a la Dora.  I suppose I need to prepare a lecture on why we don’t play with locks now.

    We have a dog door too and my son like to play ‘doggie’ and crawl through it too. I have also used it myself when I got locked out of the house (we have BIG dogs!).

      Lord knows my butt would never fit through our doggie door, I’d have to send a kid through it! At least now I know than get in and unlock the door if need be!
