You all remember the BEFORE steps, steep as the alps with really high steps that were hard on mom's knee and my older joints.
Mom wanted to fence the backyard but we couldn't as in order to gate them, the gate would be right next to the driveway and Dad has to cut the corner through the edge of the grass there when Mom's big four-door 4 x 4 truck is in the driveway.
So Dad rebuilt the steps, making the steps very shallow (there's just more of them) and rotating them back 90 degrees into the yard so the little grassy bit is there on the left for him to make his turn onto his parking pad (that will get cemented in)
I've never been off a leash before. I'll just stand here cuz I don't think I'm supposed to be off the leash. Mom took me to a dog park once. I wouldn't leave her side.
I can Mom, really?
To fence the whole thing in would have meant a very expensive gate and all sorts of spruce needles in my paws which can sometimes hurt. So they left the side yard open and just fenced in this half.
I did one last zoomie which Mom said was just a big blur on the camera and then it was time to face the music.
I'm still not sure about this. I'll just give her my "I smoked but I didn't inhale" face.
Made it in the house and Mom was . . .smiling!?
