Houdini Lips

Yesterday afternoon I was in the pasture cleaning up manure

and playing ball with the dogs. 

This is their very favorite game...fetch.

Can't you tell by the smile on their faces?


Oh, I might have failed to mention...Sam doesn't fetch.

While I worked and the dogs ran, I heard the sound of the Porcine Princesses 
from the other side of the fence.

In their very best Piglish, they were excitedly trying to tell me something.

I, the dumb human, just couldn't understand what had them so excited.

And then I heard a very loud "CRACK" from the direction of the porcine palace.
Going up to the horses' dry lot to investigate that sound, I saw this...

Apparently, Moonbeam was so starved that he had to break into the pigs' stall to eat their hay.

"A guy's got to do what a guy's got to do when starving!"

There was nothing for me to do at that time, but to close the door and latch it.

And then I realized that Mr. Houdini Lips...

could actually turn the handle and unlatch the door.

Yep, that old Moonie can use his lips just like fingers.

He can open just about any kind of door!

It takes the hook lock on the top of the door to keep him out.
Somehow he has not managed to figure out that kind of lock!

"Rats!  Foiled again!"

"Looks like I'm gonna starve around here!"

PS:   Later today I am going to get the trail cameras and check for this week's activity.
I know that the camera in the orchard will have at least 42 pictures of Annie,
as she runs in front of it routinely at least twice a day.

Check back this weekend to see who's been visiting our land at night!
Have a great weekend.
