Meet Harry — a little dog who recently discovered his one true passion in life. Watching the world pass by.
Harry had always enjoyed hanging out in his family’s fenced-in backyard, but it didn’t offer much visual access to what lay beyond. The pickets on the fence were so closely spaced, it was pretty much impossible to look through them.
But then something happened that gave Harry the first glimpse into what he’d been missing all along. A storm knocked over the fence, and a new one was put up with a slightly different design.
Alex Mcleish, Harry’s owner, thinks it’s sad for Harry to spend so much time staring into the void every day. So to give his dog more joy, he asked his father to build a fence with a special design. Mcleish’s dad had cut out a window in the fence just for Harry to be able to look out on the world without any obstructions.
Harry could now watch what was happening on the other side of the fence by peering through the narrow slits.
“When my dad rebuilt the fence, there was some spaces between the pickets,” Mcleish said. “That’s when I caught Harry looking out the gaps!”
Harry was thrilled. “Harry knew it was for him!” Mcleish said. “He watched my dad when he was making it like he was waiting for him to be finished.” And it was clearly worth the wait.
Since the fence was redesigned, Harry has been mostly glued to it. The dog looked happy and wagged its tail repeatedly when it saw someone walking past the house. Mcleish said the dog just sited there for hours and would only come in when he called in.
Harry wouldn’t have voiced any complaints, of course, had the fence been left as it was. But with that adorable modification, Mcleish’s dad was able to make the pup’s favorite new pastime all the more enjoyable.
