After several weekends out of town Patrick and I finally found some time this weekend to get back to work on the house.
We are watching my parents dog for almost a month while they take a road trip almost across the country to visit Wyoming. This is really a treat for us because we absolutely love Weston. He is such a good dog. He’s an eight year old golden retriever and probably the sweetest, smartest boy ever!
This weekend’s project was focused on our extended dog sitting job…. most of our yard is fenced however there is a small section that is open to the road on the side of the yard. When speaking to the past owners that said a gate had to be removed some time ago to run the utility lines underground and they never got around to re installing the gate.
While we trust that Weston has no interest in running away, we know that he will run out to visit anyone or dog that walks by the house. Most importantly I don’t want to worry about him running into the road. It’s not too busy but unfortunately dogs don’t understand the concept of looking both ways before crossing the street.
Here is a picture of Patrick standing in the opening.
The good news is that they never threw away the old gate!
So our plan is to get this thing install asap so Weston can enjoy a little yard time without our supervision or without being on a leash.
