Fencing Coming Soon

As our home renovations come closer and closer to completion, we are scheduling our fence installation. Yes, fencing coming soon!

Our fencing installer is visiting Chez Herd By The Sea (how’s that for a new name???) today to measure for the fence installation. We expect most of the exterior work on the house to be complete in the next few weeks (finally) so we can (finally) get our fence replaced.

Then we will be able to run, run, run.

Maybe the timing will work out that we will get our fence for Christmas? That could be an awesome present to ourselves.

Then we won't need no stinking leashes...inside the fence.

    Hu-Dad-how weird is it that back in December 2019 the HERD was looking forward to a fence and now in June 2021 they are in a new home and the title could be used over again-lol? I hope it went well yesterday!

    I can’t even begin to imagine not having a fence. The joy on everyone’s face, including the humans, will be a sight to see!

    I bet that’ll be a huge relief, for all.

    I really like the new name, sounds so peaceful and relaxed. The fence will be a great addition to the new home. With 1 I can get away with no fence, but with 5, no way!! Enjoyed your grassy yard today, after our 2 feet of snow here. I am sure you don’t miss the white mess!!

    Love the joy on her face!

    What great news Hu-Dad-hopefully a Christmas present to the Chez Herd by the Sea(love the name BTW). Miss Cheoah can run and play with NO leash dragging behind her! WHOPPEE!

Maybe my neighbors didn’t notice, but I took a walk on the trashy side last week and need to confess my mistake.

We Had A Little Snow

January 25, 2016 |

Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
