He is the most determined, clever, ingenious dog I have ever met. You see, Pumpkin is bad. Just down right bad. That's why he's not allowed in the living room when no one is home. To keep him out of the living room we block off the room with a huge piece of plywood. That seemed to work. Little did we know that all the while he had been formulating a plan. Here's the plan (as we see it anyway...) He carefully pushes the dining room chair out from under the table. Then he carefully jumps on the chair, making it easier to jump onto the dining room table. Then he figures he has a better chance of jumping over the plywood. So far, he hasn't figured out that part. Knowing Pumpkin.....it won't be long before you figures it out. NOTHING CAN STOP A BEAGLE FROM GETTING WHAT HE WANTS..... NOTHING.... Not even an iron dog crate.
