Our dog (a 2yo pound puppy) got up on the patio table the other night. Its a rare occurrence because the chairs aren't usually sitting where she can jump into the chair and then onto the table. Well, we left the chairs out and she jumped on the table.
The next morning I saw her sleeping on the table. Didn't think much about it. That day at lunch she was sitting on the table adn staring in at me through the kitchen window. Dh noticed her on the table a couple of times too.
Then yesterday I come home from work and she's on the table adn I notice a big wet puddle on the table. It hadn't rained, so I said to dh, "Did Ellie pee on the table?" We determined she must have cause there was no other way for liquid to get on it. We looked at her through the window adn she'd stand right at the edge of the table and wag her tail in a nervous/scared manner.
That's when we figured it out. She hadn't been getting up on the table the past couple of days. She'd never gotten down! The dumb dog was STUCK on the table. The table is only 2.5 feet high! She could have easily jumped down. And, the chair she used to get UP on the table was still there and she could have used it to get DOWN! Dh and I were rolling in laughter when we figured out why she'd been on the damn table so much. Just to verify, I went outside, held her favorite toy out to her and said "Here girl." she came to the edge of the table, looked down and very nervously wagged her tail and whimpered. I had to LIFT her off the table!
so, that's my dumb dog ...
