Help Me!

I really, really need some help here.

Rumsfeld keeps getting away & I can't seem to keep him tied up. So far he's broken three collars, two harnesses (that I then patched together to make a third, which he also broke), both snaps on his cable & then the cable itself, which is why he is now put out on a length of 800 pound chain. And he's not even tied out that much, due to my fears that he'll get loose & run off.

Soooo, anybody have any ideas for keeping a 100 pound Rottie/mutt on a chain?

(I'm planning on getting a kennel-thingy when I can afford it, but that won't be for a while.)

Well, the log chain sound like the best bet yet. Do they make collars out of Kevlar? Kevlar and steel cable would be a good set up! Seriously, the best thing I could think up would be to string a cable between two trees, put a pulley on that, then run your chain to the steel shackle on you houdini dog. That should keep him in the yard!

Eric - Remeron? Or maybe Haldol? I wonder how big of a dose I'd need...

Just my luck he'd turn into a druggie -doggie - breaking his chain to go find that Pit Bull dealer of his & I'd be right back in the same boat, only with the addition of his new, expensive habit.
