I'm back! xD and I have a new escape artist
Hey everyone, It's been a while but it's great to finally have time to be back! I missed all the awesome advice and loving community that is KH,
I've been unable to come on as of late for family issues and just not having enough time, cause of my Junior year and looking at college.

In January we got a new puppy, an Akita named Shasta, named after mount Shasta in Washington. She's quite the escape artist and has bolted through our invisible fence twice!

(pictures of her)



She is such a handful but worth all the effort of grooming, feeding, walking, and... sometimes chasing around the neighbor's yard to get her back home. I am smitten like a kitten with a ball of yarn!

What a sweetie! She'll be good company too. My DD's Jack Russell will run the invisible fence if he's after a rabbit; his collar's on Fry Daddy, Fry! setting and he just doesn't care when he's motivated. Are Akitas the same way?

Akita's are a very stubborn, very large breed, she runs through the fence when she's motivated or she feels the shock and not the vibrations of the collar if the collar is too loose... my dad had to tighten the collar after yesterday's scare... man she can run! I had to catch her by her tail yesterday

I just noticed in your photo there is what appears to be a crocheted afghan. Did you make it?

No, my mother was making a cotton afgan for my Grams, but it wasn't quite going how she wanted it, and Shasta needed a blanket in her kennel so rather than ripping back all the work she did she just stopped where she was and had me give the blanket to her
