Sofia escapes! A smart dog finds a way out.
That was absolutely perfect. The backwards hind-leg climb, the little face peeping out at the top (at which point I went "Hee hee hee hee hee"), the way all the other pups stop what they're doing and wait with bated breath to see if she actually does it (you can almost hear them thinking "What's she doing? Escaping? No!"), and then how they all rush to the door, and the sad little raised paw of the pup left behind ...

Oh my god, best youtube video ever. Beagles cannot be contained!

I've actually seen this on TV before youtube (for once!)

Hee! Our dog would probably do something like that. We call her the "escape artist" because she's confounded us several times and left us wondering how the hell she has managed to get out, over or through whatever pathetic security we've attempted to put in her way. She's squeezed through a totally impossible hole, jumped from windows that we were sure were much too high... Like Sofia, she can be utterly determined, single-minded, and fearless. But only when we leave the house without her. Presumably, she's trying to come find us.

My previous 2 dogs, both Aussies, were somewhat the opposite. I've let them out in the back yard, unknowingly with the gate open, and they would stay there. Not even running out to greet me if they saw me walking home down the street.

The current 2, I have my doubts about. Silver figured out how to open the gate, and that was a sign to have him fixed. He's never tried to escape again. Saffron could easily jump my fence, but she never does. I think she probably hasn't learned that she can yet.

Interesting how that dog learned to climb the chain-link. Dogs are full of all kinds of surprises.

That is so funny. The other puppies were saying, "Now free us. Open the door! Hey, where are you going?"

That's too cute. Reminds me of my cat. I swear he would open doors if he had thumbs. He paws at the doorknobs, but luckily for me can't use them!

Though I expect this isn't the first time Sofia has escaped - something had to have prompted her owners to set up the camera.

Yeah. You can see the bit of wood stuck to the top of the door. Then the second bit of wood nailed to that (after she got through the smaller gap). Then the brick put on top of the corro roof after she pushed her way through the last time. I'd guess the camera was to find out how she was getting out even after all those measures.
