Why Wait For A Little Fence?

Landon asks Frankie why wait for a little fence around the yard before taking full advantage of it.

During a mid-day stroll through the new backyard, Landon asks Frankie why the leashes are attached. Oh, sure, the fence hasn’t been installed yet, but if we promised to be really, really, really good and not stray off the property, the Boomster can’t see any reason to be tethered. Hu-Dad laughed and laughed at the suggestion. Something about get used to it. (Fence is about two months away. Sigh.)

    I agree with Hu-Dad-sorry boys. Also agree with Debbie and Ruby-probably true about 1 in 10 million sibes can be trusted off leash!!!

    I agree with you guys, what Husky can’t be trusted off leash? Maybe 1 in 10 million!! Don’t worry 2 months will just fly by.
