Joey Does it!!!!!

The Internet has me in a bad mood today. I am generally overwhelmed with the conglomeration of stupidity out there. I hate to say it but there are some people who should not have a voice. I don’t really want to go into detail. I will get over it and I am moving on. Wheew now I feel a little better.

As you all know I have been busy with my weather experiments and my quest to collect all, your throw away votes. Is there a more trusted leader than a dog? Dogs are tasked with leading blind people across streets what better vote of confidence is there than someone stepping out into traffic without looking and knowing their dog will keep them safe.

With all these things going on I have been very busy and have sort of lost track of what my pals have been doing. It turns out my best buddy Joey has been working on a project of his own lately.

It seems that there are invisible barriers around all the homes in our neighborhood. It is weird you will be minding your own business then like 3 feet before you get to the barrier you hear a beeping sound. If you don’t turn around and just ignore the beeping a few seconds later your neck will hit that barrier and you will feel this weird pain like a bee sting. It is really not pleasant.

The weird thing is that when I am with my A or R they can lead me through the barrier with no problem, but if I try to go through the same spot without them it does not work. Believe me I have tried everything. It seems to me that the gap must be constantly moving. I have a feeling the barrier is visible to humans but not dogs, which would explain why it is so easy for my A and R to get through it. I wonder if it has something to do with color. We dogs don’t see color anywhere near as well as people so I am guess this has something to do with me not being able to see the opening in the barrier.

Now the other day I was walking by Joey’s house and he walked out into the road to say “Hi” to me. I was shocked. “Joey how did you get through the barrier?” he told me he had figured it out. Apparently in order to get out of Joey’s yard all you need to do it locate gap in the barrier which can be done by watching birds. Apparently when birds fly over the house they use the barrier gaps. The birds always fly above the gaps so if you can run under the bird you can get out of the yard.

Joey is so lucky. He has been taking himself for walks, he gets to visit people when they walk by and he has even been going over to visit muddy next door. As soon as I get some time I am going to see if the bird trick works for the barrier around my house. I have noticed it does work for getting into Joey’s yard so I am hopeful it will work in my yard.

I am hoping that this system works for all the yards in my neighborhood and not just Joey’s yard. I can’t wait to be able to get out at night and go visit Mr. Mailbox. I am so going to figure out what he is getting in that ridiculous mailbox. I can understand locking up your house or your car but your mail, come on. I wonder if Mr. Mailbox knows that anyone can stop his mail. All you have to do is go to and fill out the stop mail form. They never even ask you to prove it is really your mail you are stopping. Well it looks like I have some work to do over at Remember if you don’t know who to vote for vote dog.
