The fence will be installed tomorrow. Finally! Last weekend we worked super hard to get the privet hedges trimmed back so that the fence can be installed right up against them. The dirt and sore muscles are gone but the scratches on my arms are still there. It looks like I’ve been playing with a vicious cat.
Yesterday, I shopped for the Martha Stewart lawn furniture Mel wants for her birthday. They were out of stock on the stuff but I got a rain check for the sale price. Since we plan to spend lots of time outside with dogs, we figured we might as well be comfortable.
Almost every dog owner in the neighborhood knows we are getting the yard fenced. It seems like every time we go out walking we meet a dog we haven’t met before. If the girls show the slightest interest in the fellow four-legged, we end up issuing an invitation for play time. It seems there isn’t a day that goes by that Mel or I don’t tell the other about a dog we met, and “oh, by the way, honey, I invited them to come over.” I believe our newly fenced yard will be dog run central this summer.
We also got SuperSoakers last week. Between those and the hose, there will be no misbehaved doggies in the yard. Heheheh.
Yes, I know. We’re obsessed. “Mental-sick” as Mel would say.
