(There are cute dogs at the end, I promise!)
Happy Dogs on Thursday! Please pop over and read all about the new salon equipment at Sissy’s Doggy Diva Spa our house. I won’t repeat myself, so you’ll just have to paddle over and read if you’re curious.
Instead, I need your help. (Not you Cynthia. You and Mr. IT have helped enough already. Please note that while *I* am being listed as the party requiring the security doggy door, someone else’s eyes glisten at the mere thought of technology, security and his little princesses all meeting in one microchip.)
What? Oh, sorry. I digress, and moreso. Personally, I love it when my local life and my blog intersect. Do you? Or are they two separate and distinct parts of your life?
Anyhoo, after several years months weeks of talking about it, we are finally under construction at Haddon Woods. Please note that while *I* have begged for an addition for YEARS on end, the fur-Divas get their steps into the pen first. (As they should, but still!)
Ignore the concrete that has sucked the paint up until the original color is left (the grey is the “correct” color). We need to repaint, but I keep putting that off with phrases like “… but that will get taken care of with the addition, right?” I think it’s time to decide what’s going to happen when, and move forward with SOMETHING…
So, back to Cynthia, Mr. IT, and the supreme doggy door. I’m leaning more in more in favor of a doggy door onto this deck, with a couple of conditions. A motion-activated light must be installed for Gretchen’s safety. The sliding glass door shall be replaced with french doors, with the doggy door going on the “fixed” side, so that the working side can have a screen or something.
I don’t know exactly which model our friends have, but the Knight babbled about a microchip that opens the door, so without that, other critters can’t get it. Here’s a link to some doors of a similar sort I found…
Anyhoo, I believe construction will be completed this evening with help from our nephew and a friend of his. I think the Knight will have to powerwash the original deck before he tries to stain to match. We’ll also need to clean out the pen a bit too.
Do your dogs have a doggy door? If so, what type?
Oh, but that’s boring for those of you looking for cute doggies, isn’t it?
Rosanne gifted Gretchen a fetching fire kerchief a while ago, and I kept forgetting to take photos. Gretchen really seems to like this style; she actually pulled away from me when I wanted to take it off at the end of the photo shoot!
It’s reversible too.
She could match her Dadaw’s personal truck. Of course, he’s not so worried about THAT truck; he noted last night that the girls sure would be cute hanging out the back windows of the chiefmobile for the parade coming up this weekend. (I think the temperatures will make this a non-option. Besides, I think he was joking, maybe?)
Happy little friday! Don’t forget to visit the other DoT blogs.
