Maybe I don't want to know.

I need to go home and shower.
I'm pretty sure that if a coworker did that to me...they would get a sharp elbow jab to whatever my elbow happened to be closest to on their person. And then another for good measure since their hands were WET.

Ew.

Why did I just spend an hour and a half looking at gruesome car crashes when we're driving to Regina today?

The problem with antlers, is they get a pretty mellow 4 minutes of chew, then he gets bored and ditches them. I guess I just need to deal with tiring him out instead.

Sometimes I think there is something really wrong with me. Couple weeks ago I looked on TSC's website and saw 10'x10'x6' outdoor kennels or $299, I thought OK great back-up for the new house if we don't get the run done. Didn't realize that was a sale price and the kennels are normally $599 - I know I can buy used, but I do not feel like going to look, possibly having to disassemble myself, reassemble - just box it and give it to me. So I am not crazy about temporary solutions and our contractor may not be able to do the real fence until spring, I'm now looking at kennels in the $1,500 range - per dog, but they are really cool, they are a raised house with a kennel enclosure, completely tight with mesh roof... So I don't want to spend $599, but $1,500 - that's a good buy! I need to go sit in a corner with a pointed hat.
There is a completely fenced yard... But, it's a 4' high picket, good fence, it's composite and Oz says he wouldn't jump it, but I am not believing him.

Look at TSC for their electrical fencing. Don't look at the ones for dogs, but price the ones for livestock. They are super easy to install and maintain.

If you have a dog that already pops a fence (runs and flys over) they aren't going to help. But if you have a dog that jumps on a fence (up and down) and then hooks and climbs, they work great.

I've always used one. I have a 4' chain link fence. NONE of my dogs will even attempt to stand on the fence. It gives a pretty good jolt, but it pulses so you don't have to worry about getting too much of a jolt.

You put the box in a place that you see everyday. There is a blinking yellow light and a 'click' sound as it pulses. Mine is in my porch. I see/hear it several times a day. If there is a problem with the fence, like something causing a break in the current) it'll either stop pulsing totally (no 'click' sound or blinking yellow light) or it'll be off beat.

I don't think an electric fence will stop a dog who has already learned to jump a fence. It might, but I wouldn't bet on it. But for me, as my dogs got older (and bigger) they tempt their fate and stick their nose on the hot wire. They only do it once.

My Lacy could easily sail over my fence. Hondo (even with his bum leg) could as well without much effort. But neither dog will get near the fence. Which makes me feel better because my Lacy gets it into his head that there is buried treasure in the yard.

My two nieces, ages 1 and 3, ADORE Baxter. They each have little stuffed GSDs that they sleep with, carry everywhere, and even make "guard" the house (they put them in front of doors or windows and tell them to keep it safe). So I thought it would be cute to make a photo book of various pictures and add some captions since there was a Groupon for it.

...I have the picture part down, but I'm struggling with captions.

Hubby wants a Range Finder for Christmas. I think I'm going to give him my stove. I don't use it much anyways.
