I rather enjoyed the outing last week, to get fitted for a new collar. The ladies at the store oohed and aahed at my loveliness, and treated me like the Queen Sophine that I am.
Then the flags went up.
It was all a ruse!
I am being "trained" to the Electronic Fence!
I should not be hemmed in by a fence, physical OR electronic! I am Queen Sophine! The neighbors should feel blessed if I deign to lay my poopage upon their turf!
I am acting quite grumpy about it, too, to fully express my disdain. Thus far I do not have the "shock" on but just the warning signal that comes on if I go near the flags.
Pennie is quite grumpy due to wearing the Cone of Shame. I am grumpy due to the reduction in my territory (and there was not even a Treaty Agreement!) We shall see if Mom can endure TWO grumpy dogs.

Wow Queen Sophie, you will have to hang your head in shame!
I cant imagine the dreaded "electric fence". The Morris Pack protested and mom just couldnt do it so we made them build a wooden fence. Maybe you pups should protest! Good Luck!
Woof Woof, Molly
Yes, Molly, we have all voted for a physical fence, but it just won't work. The back yard is surrounded by honeysuckle thicket. Not only does it give privacy, but it makes the back yard much shadier in the summer time. As fast as honeysuckle grows, it would rapidly grow and entwine itself into a physical fence. This would make it extremely difficult to keep the honeysuckle under control, as it requires regular maintenance, but it is worth it for it's privacy value and cooling properties. Mom does miss having a physical fence, such as she had at her last house.
Oh Queen Sophie it sounds like you did all you could. We know about those honeysuckles down south here, they grow worse than weeds but we love the smell of them. We have an empty lot next to us that hasnt been built on and it is covered in it!
Just listen to those beeps and stay away and you will never have to endure the "shock", youre smart so you will understand!
Woof Woof, Molly
