Have You Ever Noticed A Fence Painted Purple? It Means THIS..

Seeing purple paint on fences in rural Texas is extremely common, but many people don’t know what it means. The practice began in 1989, as a subtle way of letting strangers know that they were entering a private area. Most people have no clue what this purple fence means but awareness could easily stop an unnecessary tragedy from happening.

You might think that “No Trespassing” signs would be a more direct way of reminding people of land boundaries, however those signs would often disappear or be damaged. Texas passed a law in 1997, that would particularly alert hunters and fisherman not to go further, saying that purple paint meant “No Trespassing”.

In the video you are about to watch below, you will hear more about how this came about, and why the color purple was used. The Purple Paint Law has also gone into effect in Illinois, and violation because you are ignorant of what it means is no excuse.

After This Guy Literally Just Finished Building His Dog Fence In The Backyard He Let’s His Dog Out To Test It.

Dogs love going outside to get some fresh air and exercise and for responsible owners that means they have to either put them on a leash and take them for a walk or go to the dog park. Unless, of course, they have a sturdy fence installed that allows the dog to roam free and explore the yard safe and securely. The convenience of having a fenced-in area for pets at home simply make people’s lives easier and they also make life easier and happier for the dog, and more fulfilling!

One man, YouTube user rgraves62002 decided that his best friend, an adorable dog named Stella, could benefit from a nice penned in area. He rescued Stella after finding her in a dumpster and saw how much she loved to run and jump around, so she needed a place to play in and keep her from wandering off.

Knowing how much of a jumper Stella was he tried to figure out how high she could leap before he went out and bought a fence. He set up a test and explained in the comments that he “had Stella jump a baby gate inside and when she stopped jumping it I added 6” (inches).”

After putting up the new fence he couldn’t help but admire it and the clip he posted shows the end result of all his hard work and effort. He can be heard in the background saying “Yep, just completed fixing this fence. Pretty proud of it I’d have to say. Trying to keep Stella in the yard.” As if on cue Stella comes running, she flies right by the camera, and leaps up and over the new fence in a single bound!! She barely paused and cleared the top with room to spare! Seconds later the man simply says “Dammit.” It’s the perfect reaction to the moment and one can only imagine what a stupefied look he must have on his face. Stella: 1 Fence: 0.

In the end, the fence didn’t end up going to waste. The man commented that he re-purposed it into “a tree house with a zip-line for my grandson” so it wasn’t a compete failure. This video just goes to show how everything worked out for the best, and how agile some dogs are! Show this hilarious video to other dog lovers and anyone else who can appreciate the hilarity of the moment.
