Freedom

We finally got our fence installed.  Well, most of it is done.  We have two sections of temporary fencing up until Dominion Power can make it out here to bury the power line.  The kids are thrilled to finally be able to run and roam free.  We are happy to not have to leash walk four dogs 6 times a day!

Below are just a few pics from the pups first romp in their new yard.  🙂  I think their bubbles say “Freedom!”

At age 11 and 1/2, Maggie does not run much anymore.  So we took the opportunity to have our picture taken together under the Magnolia after the action from the other pups was over.

The Magnolia is my favorite tree in our new backyard.  Unfortunately, it has not been maintained very well.  It is pretty stumpy and wide instead of full and tall like most Magnolia’s we have seen.  We got some advice from Southern States on the proper way to prune.  Spring is the perfect time to do this.  We removed a lot of the lower branches.  We don’t think it has ever been pruned, so we took care of that last weekend.

It looks so much better and hopefully will start to get taller.  🙂

Back inside, the pups have been doing great with the new no laying on the living room furniture rule.  🙂  I guess dogs can break familiar habits.

Pippi loves to be wherever the sunshine is.

Maggie loves all the sunbeams from the big bay window.

Cueball loves the den……..

but spends most of his lounging time on our bed.

 We are all settling in nicely in our new place.  I think the pups are happy with their new home and new yard.  We sure are!

  1. I remember the days when we moved into the house and didn’t have a back deck and hadn’t put up a fence yet. Not fondly. Looks like your kids have settled into their old routine in the new house.
