My little Escape Artist

So this week Sparty decided to break out of his crate, every day. Tuesday was the first day of tricks. You can see from the picture, he pushed over the top latch to escape. He only chewed one of Steve's sandals. Thank goodness he didn't get my running sneakers!!!

Wednesday morning rolls along and I make sure to lock the crate before leaving for work. Well when I got home, Sparty escaped again! This time he pushed the tray out from the inside of his crate and wiggled out the bottom. He didn't eat anything though.

Thursday, Steve gets home from work and shit hit the fan! Sparty escaped for the third day and chewed the place up! My birthday present from my sister, the tissue box, a scrabble game, and some pine-cones that were on the table.

On Friday we went out for 2 hours and placed carabiners on the crate, he couldn't get out.

Saturday, was the worst, for him. He broke out with the carabiners on the crate. When we got home we couldn't believe the destruction that was done to the create, it was so destroyed we couldn't even close the doors, not to mention, the wires could have poked him through the gut. He has a bruised eye and scratches on belly.

No more crate for Spartan, the little escape artist!!!

I rescued my human

Our sweet little guy Sparty. He's about 2 and 1/2 and loving life. Sleeping all day and going for walks throughout the day. Our neighbor gave us a medal for Sparty that says "I rescued my human". And that's the truth.
