|I DIDN'T HAVE A CAMERA WITH ME TODAY,|
SO I'M USING AN OLD PHOTO AGAIN.
Months later, Dixie had gained weight and I bought a bigger harness. It didn't fit perfectly, but it went around the middle of a 27-plus-pound beagle.
She's tried mightily to get rid of both harnesses, and she's gotten out of the second harness twice. In fact, she did it so well that we can't find the bigger harness (and we've looked everywhere but the yard; I'm sure she had it on when we came in).
So we went back to the smaller harness, which doesn't really work. Holly's talking about heading to Walmart to get yet another harness.
Which means we'll probably find that second harness she wiggled out of.
NOTE: Holly bought Dixie a comfortable-looking harness, and we'll see how it works. (She's lost some weight, and the comfortable harness is too big for her.)
UPDATE: Dixie lost her harness again yesterday. She was hooked to her line outside when she wiggled out of her harness. Later, a neighbor carried her to our carport door and asked my wife Holly if we had a three-legged beagle.
Obviously, we did. She's lying behind me, without a harness. We need to find one that fits better.
