No, Scooter’s been working on this for a while.
Fitting the hoses together was probably his most recent technological victory….
Last year, he mastered the faucet, but he was stuck with a hose of limited length….
Then it was Buster Kitty who taught him a somewhat embarrassing lesson about looping a line over a tree branch, to trap the unwary.
Not that he was actually hurt…. he could have easily escaped, but he was humoring Buster.
And it gave him the idea that if it were a hose hanging down from the branch….
The attack would be swift, and resistance would be futile.
Scoooter’s not a bad dog… just a smart and wily one, with lots of time on his hands and a bit of …. shall we say, wiggle room(?) … in his moral compass.
If he were a bit more anthropomorphic, he could get a job, like Fenton, and BatPug….
but he’s all dog… and we all love him for it.
Still… sigh…. this can’t really continue.
Monkey! Time for another talk with Scooter!
