Okay... I can explain this! Really! My daughter is NOT your average kid!
How this picture came to be is a shining example of this...She crawled into the cage and locked herself in
(and the poor dog out) and refused to come out of the cage until we had taken a picture of her in there..
She thought it was pretty damn funny and well, I guess I have to agree with her!
On a side note, she has since been forbidden to lock herself in, as it really bothers the dog when she can't get in her "house".
