Dang, that smarted!

Tonight Danny and I decided to make a Sonic run in the Jeep, you know how hot it was today and a Blast was sounding like it might just hit the spot. Nelson really thought he needed to go too, so we invited him to ride along.

Nelson was SO happy that he was getting to go on a RIDE. He loves to get to GO, he was sitting in my lap, looking over the side of the Jeep as Danny slowly backed out of the drive.

Just as we neared the street I heard Nelson make a SNORT, which I thought was odd; then all at once he JUMPED and YELPED! And then Nelson’s terrible Mama remembered that she had left his invisible fence collar on him!

I quickly held him up over my head trying to get him out of range of the fence, but it didn’t work! Danny was so confused that he just STOPPED THE JEEP ON TOP OF THE FENCE!

I’m screaming at Danny to MOVE, MOVE and Nelson is YELPING, YELPING and our neighbor across the street and some lady that we don’t know is walking down the sidewalk and WATCHING this entire fiasco play out.

Finally, Danny backed out into the street and out of range of Nelson’s fence, but poor Nelson, his heart was racing, he probably thought he was being electrocuted.

When we leave in my SUV I don’t have to take his collar off, I guess there is enough metal on it that it blocks the transmission to his collar.

Nelson will probably think twice before he asks to ride in the Jeep again, don’t you think?

So sorry to Nelson, but I have not laughed this hard in a while. I love the image of you holding him over your head and everyone watching! Tonya
