Gypsy Breaks Free

This dog is going to be the death of me.  She has been a gypsy since the day I picked her up.  She just want to roam free and go out to see all that she’s missing.  She has 3/4 of an acre to roam free in whenever she wants.  I have fenced it all in thinking the fence would keep her contained to my yard.  First she figured out that she could dig her way out under the fence.  I installed stakes to keep the fence down so she learned to climb the fence.  After a couple of times of having to leave work and rush home like a mad-woman to pick her up somewhere in the neighborhood in addition to being fined by the township, I installed an electric fence.  Gypsy is clever though.  She knows when the collar battery starts to run low.  I’m not sure how she does it but she stays right on top of it.  I mark my calendar so that I don’t forget to change the battery every month.  A couple of days ago, I was vacuuming and moved the table which the transmitter sits on.  I didn’t notice that one of the wires must have become loose until of course, Gypsy was nowhere to be found.  I swear, my heart just stops when I realize she’s missing.  She does give me grief but how can you look into those eyes and not love her.
