Poor Griffin! Looking back at the strip after I posted it, it may look like Hunter is swinging at Griffin’s head in panel two. He’s not, I just drew it a little close. He’s just showing Griffin that there’s nothing there!
A subtle note about today’s comic; it shows a little of the effects that “Bark To The Future” had on Hunter. If you recall, he used to be a pretty big wuss, and would never mess with something that could potentially zap him, regardless if he could see it or not. After going through so much in the past year of comics, he’s toughened up a bit! He’s certainly not Mr. Tough Dog, as we’ll see in the next month or so, but he’s not jumping at things like he used to!
I’m not a big fan of “Invisible Fences”, or shock collars in general. Choke collars make me mad too. But that’s another story.
In my experience, invisible fences work marginally at best. A dog up the road from us was hit by a car after running through one, and that was not a big dog. I’d hate to think of the voltage we’d need to stop Hunter in his tracks when he gets going. I’m thinking cattle prod levels, probably, and I just couldn’t do that to my boy.
Anyone out there have any invisible fence success stories?
