    Nope, not neutered, as we will see further down the road (a couple years, probably).

    it is against the law to tie a dog up in the yard for extended periods of time where I live. Get an Invisible Fence, they work really well.

    It looks to me like, that if he didn’t spend so much time AROUND the tree his rope would be a lot longer and he could go further afield in the yard !

    I think some readers aren’t realizing that these are OLD strips, rerun from (at this point) the early 1980s. There WERE no invisible fences. There were no microchips. The big push on neutering was still some years away.

    to prevent him from leaving the area unless he is on a

    I think they need to get Farley a pool with a fence. He will need to work on his swimming skills for things to come.

    I am not a pet person, but I see some people that are pet owners who should NOT be, because they are ignorant.

    Lynn: I encountered that a few years ago when a German colleague had translated an article into English. He was stumped, suspecting “when all ropes fail” would not be known to anglophone readers. Still a climbing term, I suggested “at the end of your rope” and the piece went forward.
