Weekend Update Without My Other Half

Marty was gone this weekend but I managed to keep myself pretty busy. I got in a nice bike ride, a good long(ish) run and saw The Dark Night with friends. I've also managed to watch A LOT of Olympics and if last night was any indication, I'm going to be staying up way past my normal bedtime over the next couple of weeks.

I've also realized we really need a doggie door. Tassie loves being outside and is constantly giving us the puppy dog eyes so we'll open the door for her to let her out. Then she goes and tries to hunt squirrels and bunnies. When she gets tired, she lounges in the dirt which is great since she's a white dog. Anyways, she's discovered that with just one distinctive bark, Marty will run down the stairs and let her in. I was the recipient of this bark all weekend - it's different than her bark when someone rings the doorbell and sounds more like, "LET ME IN NOW!!! HEY!! RIGHT NOW!!" I swear she can be so bossy. Little princess!

I bet a doggie door would make things a lot easier. You/Tassie are so lucky to have a backyard. When I get home from work, Cooper and Frito bark at me until I take them out for their walk, even if I wait just one minute. Spoiled doggies :)

I would highly recommend a dog door. We purchased from Home Depot the kind that fits into a sliding glass door. It was a funny experience trying to teach the dogs to actually use the door. It took a lot of encouragement and baiting with food, but eventually they all learned.
