Nine days since the latest Belle break. Nine days ago, I patched the dog run fence most recently, and she hasn't gone walkabout since. Perhaps she's finally acknowledged that a dog's place is in the dog's yard. Or maybe she's finally decided to bow in recognition of my fencing supremacy. Or maybe she just doesn't have anywhere that she wants to go. Either way, she hasn't gotten out in nine days, and we're on our way towards a record.
