Camp has a bit of a problem lately, this problem comes in the form of doors, glass sliding doors in particular. She seems to run into them quite a bit. When she hears the roller door go up and a car pull in she will become excited, start prancing around and wagging her tail furiously, then she puts her head down and run as fast as her little legs will let her go straight into a closed door. She hits the door which such force that everyone in the house can hear it – that sound – the sound of bone connecting with something hard. I told her it’s not a marathon. One should look up to see if any doors or other obstacles are present in their current running path, but she doesnâ€™t listen.
To rectify the situation I have been contemplating putting some sort of doggy road bump near the door – such as a mat – to at least slow her down a bit, and maybe fashioning her some sort of door helmet and dollying it. She will either stop running into doors and in the process hate me for the rest of her doggy life for putting her in such a lame looking thing or keep running into doors and rejoice that she now has a helmet that she can use to break down said doors.
