My Dog is Nicolas Cage

Our next door neighbor's dog, with a little help from Heidi, broke through one of our fence pickets. It was a very Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall moment.

Today I was fixing the fence and while I was in the garage cutting the new picket to length and marking the holes, I noticed I hadn't seen Heidi for a little while. I went out to the backyard and peered through the new gap in the fence. The little diablita was snooping and sniffing around our neighbors yard like the No. 1 Puppies' Detective Agency. All the while, our neighbor's dogs were watching and barking from inside their house, fully losing their minds.

I lured her back with treats, but before she squeezed through the gap she took one last look at their house, squatted, and peed in the middle of their yard. It was pretty much exactly like that scene in Face Off where Castor Troy, with the face of Agent Archer, taunts Agent Archer in prison.
