Lincoln the jumper

So Mom uses baby gates all over the apartment to keep Lincoln and little ole me out of trouble. These gates are a constant annoyance when I get in trouble and have to be put on the other side of the gate. The gates always go up when Mom leaves for work too. A couple of weeks ago, Mom started noticing something odd. When she would get home from work, Lincoln would greet her at the back door. However, the gate was still up. She suspected he was jumping the gate but she couldn't figure out how. After all he is a pug. So she kept trying to catch him jumping the baby gate. But she never could, he was always just waiting on the other side.

Finally she figured out that if she stood on one side and called for him, he would do it. Here's the proof...who knew Lincoln was an agility pug. He sails over the gate. It's so unfair, I couldn't jump the baby gate if my life depended on it.

  5. Petunia can do that, too! Mom had to use two gates with a little space between so the kitties can in the bedroom, but Petunia can't get out. She used to go get midnight snacks.
    Maybe this summer, Mom can try some agility with us. Let us know if you try it!

  6. OMP Lincoln is a rally good jumper. Was he even motivated by food? We don't jump here either Minnie and baby gates keep us isolated too. However Tuni knocks them down sometimes hee hee.

  7. Hi Minnie,
    WOW, Linky has spring loaded knees! I love to jump to, but Lincoln wins hands down. He looks like a deer jumping a fence.

  9. BOL! WOW! Lincoln, you jump like we do! Maddy jumps the baby gates too, but Owen hasn't figured out how yet, even though he can jump all the way up to Daddy's shoulders. You should join agility classes :)
    Wags,

  12. Wow, Lincoln is a true blue agility pug, and he didn't even need to back up to get over the gate. We are so impressed!
