Hilarious Video Of A Man Showing Off His Hand-Made Fence To Keep His Dog In Resurfaces

Hilarious Video Of A Man Showing Off His Hand-Made Fence To Keep His Dog In Resurfaces

bored panda - 1 week ago

We like to think we know whats best for our dogs. But they move in mysterious ways and theres just not much you can do about it.

This 18-second-long tale documents a real-time conflict of an owners wish and his doggos will. The video shows a man flaunting his picture-perfect fence thats supposed to keep Stella inside. Pretty proud of it, I’d have to say, the guy declares without a hint of doubt.

But 3 seconds later, the pooch lightly leaps over it and she is out and about. The viral video was viewed more than 4 million times and resurfaced right on time to cheer everyone up. Stella, if I were you, Id stay at home this time.

The man recorded his newly fixed fence on camera but it didnt go so well

But it turned out Stella had business to do on the other side

Well done, hooman. Whats that decoration for?

The proud fence fixer clearly didnt see it coming

And people couldn’t stop giggling
