Well, it came a little late, and - thanks to all the cool, interesting, funny, witty, strange, confusing and a few slightly disturbing caption entries - it took me a little longer than expected. But I have at last chosen a winner in the MBF caption contest First, however, a few honorable mentions...
Spentcartridge had a good one with "No, I wasn't climbing the fence. I was stepping over it when my legs shrank", and reader jbiz71 hit the nail on the head with his entry "maybe an underground fence isn’t such a bad idea."
Reader 1grand6 took a cue from one of my favorite Bogart flicks (and better book by the enigmatic B. Traven) with "What gate, I don't need no stinking gate!" While bassman1 gave the photo his best TV pitchman effort with "Bird dog mail box now $39.99. No hardware needed just place paws over fence. Not responsible for mauled or missing mail."
Regular blog reader MLH chose to highlight the alleged visual shortcoming of certain Teutonic continental breeds with "Just call me ugly one more time ... just one more time." And the contest even garnered a little limerick action from reader Cunninghamww
Ole Hank didn't have much sense.
He got hisself stuck on a fence.
But don't be dismayed,
His sweetie's been spayed,
A fence-jumpers only defense.
