The dogs were barking and having a fit and when I looked out the window I saw the Landlord coming up the driveway on his tractor with a front loader and was plowing our driveway
He was putting all the snow in a big pile where it would be out of the way...He plowed right up to the front of the garage...couldn't ask for a better LL
It was Maggies turn to go out (we have to put the big huge pups out one at a time on a chain since they broke the other chain) and she was facinated by the tractor and we barely ever have a vehicle pull in our driveway so that was exciting for her to. Maggie does not like it when it is Callies turn to go out and she has to stay in and wait for her turn..
This is our back door that goes out to the back porch and the LL cut a hole in it so our cats could go out on the porch to go in their litter box plus their food is out there. I took the back side of a piece of velcro and had Billy screw it into the door right above the hols and then I took some upholstery fabric that wouldn't fray and sewed the top half of the velcro on the back of it and cut it in strips. We did that on both sides to keep drafts out and if anything happens to the fabric (like maybe Maggie tearing it up) it can be replaced easy enough.
And here is Maggie with her head out through the hole because she is upset because Billy is outside with Calli and Bianca and Annie. She howls..whines..and crys until it is her turn.
I sure wish I could just let the pups out without a chain but every time they manage to sneak out or break the chain they take off and I am afraid they will get out in the road and get killed. I would love to have one of those zappers to use and there is a special collar to put on the dog and when they go past where you want them to go you can zap it and they will learn not to go where they are not supposed to go...will be glad when spring is here and we can rig up some kind of fence...even if it looks like little house on the prairie..
