    DefaultI am pretty sure the meter reader....

    .....needs to change his underwear!

    I had the window open and all the dogs peacefully with me on the couch. My shy little Flint noticed the man walk by the window first. Every one bolted for the window and went right through the screen! Out of the window comes five Labs, barking and charging around him. I got all but Flint back in the house, and my shy boy kept darting about barking at the poor guy. Apparently it was his first time on the route and had no idea there were dogs here. He said he would make a "note" of it!

    Unfortunately, the dogs now know they can bust through the screen!

    OMG! I have always feared this, time to put bars on the windows. I bet it was kind of funny, just a little bit!

    Poor guy, but really funny visualizing it.


    Isn't it great to have a sister

    Oh my, I can picture this happening & while amusing for us, likely not funny for the meter reader.

    All our utility companies have gone to meters that they can reader with scanners or sensors from a vehicle. No need to physically walk up to & read or scan them any more.

    Funny! My meter reader would have broken out the pepper spray for sure.

    I had a dog who went out the screens more than once. I only open windows from the top down because of that (mine are mostly double hung).

    Yes, it does sound funny to me, but I'm sure he was startled and I would have been pissed.

    My sisters two dogs went through a picture window one time. Scary.

    That may present a problem in the future. My guys figured they can push out the screens so I can only open the windows from the top, or less than 6" from the bottom, so a Lab can't get more than his head through. And believe me, they remember!
