The Boys Are Back In Town

Remember when this entire blog revolved around two little fur boys and their adventures? And then it seemed to suddenly shift focus elsewhere.  But it’s not what you’re thinking.  They didn't get booted because the Bird took center stage, we didn't love them any less since her arrival, and they certainly haven’t stopped being the center of attention.  Their absence can be attributed to good behavior.  No drowning pugs, no runaway heelers, and no more midnight barking jam sessions. But fear not; the boys are about to make their big comeback. 

We moved to the country for one main reason; the abolishment of all laws doggy. Unfortunately, that isn't the case and somehow our boys seemed to find their way straight into trouble. But you know how the saying goes; every dog has his day in court, except the names appearing on the court dockets we’re that of yours truly.  Zip and Tank found their way into the neighbor’s chicken coop and ruffled a few feathers. No chickens were hurt in the midst of their gallivanting but it was just enough to send out the big guns and summon us to appear in front of a Judge for the crime of the century.  Yadda, yadda, yadda, we ended up not having to appear and instead were told to provide proof that we built a fence, which was well in the plans anyway. It took a phone call to pop and one expensive trip to Home Depot and voilĂ , we now have a back yard. 

Let me paint you a picture of my property.  A house, a porch, a driveway, various types of fences, and rocks. Lots of rocks.  No grass, no trees, no flowers, not a shrub insight.  That was so last week.  My charming little house got a makeover last September and now it’s on to landscaping.  Aside from the creation of a backyard, we've tilled up all the land and are planting grass, building a back deck, enlarging the front porch, adding landscaping, oh and this weekend we created and planted an entire garden.  I live in God’s country and it’s about time our little piece started looking like it. I LOVE where we live, the home we've created, and the people I get to share my life with.  So grateful for a hardworking and loving husband, a chirping little bird, a willing and giving mom and pop and the best neighbors/in-laws a girl could ask for. Oh, and some boys who are now forever forced to walk the line. Sorry guys, but I’m going to say it…I have a damn perfect life.
