Dog Troubles

One of my dogs has discovered that she can chew right through the bottom of our picket fence gate. By this means she has now escaped several times.

So today I spent quite a bit of time rigging up some metal mesh reinforcements at the bottom of the gate.

Also, I found she was chewing insulation off of our outdoor air conditioner compressor. So I put some metal mesh fence up around that, too!

You might ask what kind of dog this is. Well, I have papers, somewhere, claiming that she is a purebred Labrador. I saw her mama, and her mama was a Lab, for sure. But her daddy is clearly not the daddy listed on her papers. The real daddy dog had a much longer coat than a lab. Maybe it was an Irish Setter or a Golden.

We bought the dog from a farm family in Verona, Illinois. She is named Juliet, in honor of Romeo and Juliet, who lived in Verona, Italy.
