Grrrr

Just a quick vent...I need a fence dammit! My yard is not fenced and for the most part my dogs will stay in the yard amazingly enough. They wander around and do their business. Kasey is 13 so she's not too energetic and Maddie being a 6 mon old puppy pretty much sticks by and torments Kasey.

But not lately....Maddie bolts out the door and looks immediately for a squirrel, jogger, biker whatever so that she can chase them. She will come back after I scream at her long enough but damn, I'm too old to be chasing them! Kasey will slowly follow Maddie as well so then it leads to me chasing Maddie then once I have her back in the house, going back and rounding up slow poke Kasey.

I have priced dog runs and that might be what I have to go with (if not just hooking them up to a
stake while they are outside) after I get my fence quote on Friday. I have a feeling it is going to be too much for me to afford. Luckily how my yard is set up, I really only need two sides of it. My house and the neighbors fence would make up the other two sides.

Here are some pictures of my lovely dogs....grrrr LOL

I love that they are snuggly. My 3 pretty much avoid each other unless they are getting into trouble. UGH! Hope all turns out fine for the dogs with the fence. I wouldn't be able to have a house w/o one. What about the invisible fences? My girlfriend swears by hers. Even when they have it off the dog still stops on that line. They learn.

Oh my word - that last photo is PRICELESS!! I love it!

Yeah - fences are pretty expensive. Luckily, our dog is pretty good about going out, doing her thing, and coming right back in.

Can you do an invisible fence? Those are usually cheaper. My Olivia runs too, so she's not allowed off leash. A pain yes, but no chasing :)

omg they are adorable!!!! cuddling. so cute!

It's funny, we all have fenced yards here but when I go to other places {Oregon, for example}, I'm always blown away that I can see right into everyone's backyard. Not one fence! It's cool, in a way, but when I'm tanning, I don't want the world to be able to see...lol.

I've never quite been able to fathom how people who don't have fences keep pets and children from running away. Do you have to watch them 24/7. I think I would lose my mind.

What sweet puppies you have.
