I took advantage of both me and my hubby being off work from Friday through Sunday and.....................We got our fence put up around the back yard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....

Not the greatest way to spend mother's day weekend, but it was a great gift!!!!!!!!!!  I could hardly contain the excitement when I opened the back door and sent Fiona and Cassie out and I stayed inside :)

Cassie is not to sure yet......for a rescue that slept in a pen....she sure has become an inside A/C dog.....but Fiona ran around and check the bounds and then hopped and jumped and ran....acted like a complete nut!!!!


So.....I am excited :headbang:  

And a big :emtthumbs: to hubby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

great job.. what type of fence?

I have the money to do it at my house but not the time, as well as too many zoning laws.  However we have a fence company coming at 10am on wednesday to give an estimate.

I might except the estimate if its a fair price and they can be done in one day....

YEah Sharon and the hubby!!  I got one in November after 20 years of asking for one and I LOVE IT!  I tell my hubby that all the time and he just smiles.  I can finally let my dogs run and be loose without worrying if they run off into 1100 acres of wilderness or the bears are in our yard.  I do still monitor them being out there and Mateo would still rather be on the front porch or in the house with me most of the time but Talia would stay out there all day and eat rabbit s**t.

Mine is vinyl coated brown chain link fence and I think it cost about $15 a foot installed.

We did chainlink because we only fenced a portion of the yard.......WE put up about 340 feet of fence........But, I live on 2.5 acres and wanted to be able to see it........ :)   WE paid about 1300$ for the material....

can't think of a better way to spend mothers day = taking care of your babies :)

i can just see fiona romping out there free and happy!

add fertilizer, grass seed, and good rake to your wishlist  =))   although with 2.5 acres, you shouldn't get a boxer burn runway in the same spot like mine do....

Isn't it wonderful Sharon? Heck it may not have been the ideal way to spend Mother's Day, but ........ :) Sure makes life easier, doesn't it?

I'm so jealous of anyone that can even put up a fence! I hate my homeowners association!  :x

Well, that's awesome Sharon! I must have missed it somewhere, but I take it that this means you have moved into the new house?
I'm sure the kiddo's will love their new freedom.  :D
