Isaac is an escape artist. When we go to the doggie beach, he amuses the other dog owners by demonstrating how he can swim around the barriers separating the small dog beach and the two big dog beaches. He can then swim around the barrier at the end and be out of the fenced dog park.
After which he usually runs right up to the gate and waits impatiently for me to let him in. Because he wants to be inside the fenced area with all the dogs and the people. That's where the fun is. It's just fun to escape. Not to be outside the fenced area, just to escape from it.
Stinker. The other dog owners frequently comment on how smart he is. And he is. But still.
I've only seen two other dogs ever swim around the barriers of their own accord, although Isaac has shown a number of other dogs to do it and encouraged their bad behavior. Other times, the dogs see him do it but still can't figure it out. They just wonder how he suddenly got on the other side of the fence. One dog owner told me, "Plato thinks Isaac is magical."
Plato was her dog. He and Isaac had a great time playing together.
So anyway, here is the magical Isaac, demonstrating his escape artist skills for the camera.
