The first day we had Macie we had her in her kennel and she hated it. She got herself so worked up that she had something come out of each end.... So we decided we would gate her and Molly up in the bathroom while we were gone. This seemed to work for a couple of weeks until she chewed through the gate. We then got a heavy duty gate that she would not possibly be able to chew through. Well lets just say she didn't chew through it, but she has found a clever way of getting her way. She is very quick about it. I put her behind the gate, walked to the kitchen, turned around and she was already standing there wagging her tail and looking at me for some kind of treat. Here is a video of her.
Macie got put back in the kennel that night while we were out to dinner with Roy's sister. We came home to a kennel full of throw up. So she has won and now she and Molly get to wander the house. We keep our fingers crossed every second we are gone that we don't come home to a marvelous mess. So far so good though.
Also while we were in Utah for spring break we had some "family" pictures taken. Roy's sister Leslie majoring in photography at UVU. She did these last minute for us. THANK YOU LESTER! They turned out pretty cute and we are happy to have recent pictures of both of us and the dogs.
