Our very huge dogs dug a very huge whole under the fence and got out a few days ago. They didn't run away though--camped out on the front porch. It was 102 degrees outside and they wanted some open-air shade. One of our neighbors, a Mr. Mom, kept an eye on them and put them back in and boarded up the whole for us. We're working on a very awesome "thank you" for him.
The dogs broke part of the fence, so we went to Home Depot to buy replacement wood and were up SO late fixing it. Now the new wood is mismatched from the old wood, so I'll be doing some fence staining while Billy's out of town.
Okie and Stella stay inside during the hot Texas summer days, but it's STILL SPRING!!! Not suppose to be 100 degrees yet! They'll spend the next couple of weekends at Dog Boys Ranch...they'll be outside, but at least they'll have a pond to swim in and trees to nap under.
They lose their coats in the summer too, which won't suck so bad for us this summer because we're switching our
hair magents carpets out for hardwood floors.
It's amazing to me how much we humans go through to have dogs in our lives. They really are special creatures.
