With the first weekend of the new decade approaching, we thought everyone should start it with redhead smiles from our Miss Cheesy.
While the boys have enjoyed roughhousing in the new fenced area, Miss Cheesy prefers a more sedate and boy-free experience.She can enjoy the marsh breezes without worrying about being trampled by a rampaging wrestling match.
We had lots of questions about the fence yesterday, so let’s see if we can answer them:
Is the fence eight-feet tall like the fence at the old house?
The fence is 54″ (4-and-a-half feet) tall, significantly shorter than our old fence. We no longer have to worry about keeping out bears and other large predators, though we certainly still have plenty of coyotes, etc., around. And, as we are an older pack than has historically been at the old house, we don’t have to worry about the vertical jumps quite as much. Yes, Typhoon used to have an eight-foot jump (Hu-Dad said he had springs in his paws), but the boy does not sky the way he used to.
Have we buried dig guard?
Not yet, though Hu-Dad will be monitoring for needed enhancements. He reminds everyone that Nikita helped trench the first fence. Hu-Dad allowed her to dig fairly deep and then he would show up with a bag of concrete mix, pour it in the hole, and add water. Yes, Miss Nikita helped install the very first dig guard, one hole at a time.
Do we have a separate senior area?
No. We do have two zones of fencing, but one is for the pool which is decidedly a non-senior area since our senior-most-girl is also she-who-is-most-likely-to-dive-in.
Do we still have access to covered porches?
Oh, yes. We have our own private set of steps that lead to the first level covered deck AND to the second level open deck. Both decks are secured with railings. So don’t be surprised to see us having a lot of porch time with our yard visits.
