Hi everydog, kittie, hammie and hooman! It's me, Penny! The guys finally showed up, yesterday morning, to build our fence. First they had to have a conference to decide how to build it.
And then, they put up some wooden posts and some steel posts and attached the fence. All of this gave me a flashback to my puppyhood. You see, I lived inside a fenced area for the first year of my life. I was a hunting dog and my main prey were bears and wild hogs.
I had my teefies on a hog, once, but when the guns fired to bring down a hog or a bear, I was terrified! I guess that's why I'm still afraid of thunder! I just don't like loud noises! Since I wasn't a very good gun dog, my breeder decided to sell me. That fence also reminded me of when my mom and dad came to pick me out of my litter. I pranced around inside of the fence and tried to look as cute as I could. I kept saying, "Pick ME". They finally did pick ME because I was so cute and I have a white blaze on my chest just like the original Pockets! I was soooooo happy! That was the day my life changed forever. All my brothers and sisters are still hunting bears and hogs, while I live in a nice house where I get all the treats I want and when it's hot outside, my house is nice and cool and when it's cold outside, I am nice and warm. I get petted a million times a day and I get lots of food and water whenever I want it! So, you see, I was also the SMARTEST dog in my litter! By acting like I was afraid of guns, I get to live the good life! I'm pretty sure all my litter mates would be jealous! Oh, yeah, and I also never saw a dog toy for the first year of my life. Now I have way too many (according to Mom) and I like the squeaky ones best! I have to share them with Poppy, but that's okay since she is such a good sister!
The guys only got the fence about 3/4 of the way done, yesterday. They will be back today if it doesn't rain or tomorrow if it does. Then we will be all ready for our new Aire-sister when Airedale Rescue finds her for us! We can't wait!
Penny (and Poppy)
