Guess who can climb this gate?

 "Who? Me?"

Guess who taught him?

"Who? Me!!!"

Yes!  It would appear that Trace has discovered the OTHER dimension - UP! He is now experimenting and has realized that he can climb like a little spider monkey.  Mommy is not happy with a certain little spider monkey.  She is also not happy with a Giant White Gorilla.

 "Where's a gorilla?"

"There's a gorilla!"

 "OH! A gorilla-tail!"

Clever Briar,,,not. My Mym (Pyr) was up and over 8 foot fences as was Falcor. Maremma are not as good at it unless taught by Pyr. Bella (M) is pretty good but the Pyrs clamber as long as they can get those claws in. I have seen a male carefuly climb a verandah beam while it was being built and was 12 ft in space so he could get to the finished bit. Another wanted to get over a barrier (house rebuilding in progress) to go and sit with Ex to watch TV. He carefully climbed on proping kitchen chair, bit like an elephant on a circus tub and over.

I can see Trace climbing, but how on earth do big Pyrs get vertical?? Looks like you're going to have to screw a 1x10 piece of wood, horizontally across the top. Of course, Briar is probably tall enough to just pull it down?

Re the Pyr climbing I cured it with hot wire. When they do it its like a bear or cat they clamber. When Falcor got to the top he swayed and hung on for dear life then ever so carefully slithered down full stretch and sort of concerined (sp) himself so he was standing on front paws and then sort of heaved himself forward. (8ft wire fence) Mym just climbed up and over no fancy stuff. She could also slip through loose gate where it was chained. About 6 to 10 inches. Slipped under an electric about 6 inches off ground by using an old plough furrow.. need I go on? They are called shapeshifters or disapyr.

"Disapyr"!!!!!!! I LOVE it!!!!! Ohmygosh! That's perfect! Sometimes around here it's a "reapyr" because I left her in a pasture with goats or rams and she climbed over the fence to "reapyr" in the back yard again!

I am so glad, Sacha, my female pyrenees cannot access my internet connection. She is behind a five foot chainlink with the goats and chickens. One day soon she will have run of the whole place and can guard everybody - her humans included.

Consider yourself lucky! Briar is a climbing fool! She climbs into the back yard. She climbs into the sheep pen. She climbs over the stall doors. When barking at people on the street or something along the canal, she climbs out over the fence. She is a White Gorilla!
