As for the kennel. Sometimes things which are ours get 'borrowed' for longer than thought or agreed upon.
But, that's what I did with 3 panels. I made that small area out the front door with them when Hira got here, and what happened was that, for the first time in his life, Krypto can go out alone. Not for long, but it's amazing to be able to open the door and let them out.
On the other hand, it's very small, and as to your point of getting things done, I have waited to get the back area fenced for over 2 years; before we got Krypto. That area is about 6 x's the size of the area in the front.
What is with our not being able to get help? Have you ever asked Mike if there's a handy man that he could recommend for a relatively small job or 2?
I just learned of someone who sometimes is a rodman for Ds...surveying. He does ocean fishing for $'s on his dad's boat, but his primary job is a landscaping business. It got me thinking that maybe, once to twice a year, if I could save some each month, he could come over and clear the hill of weeds/fire danger, in late spring, for example. No one's asked him, but I will eventually, if it looks like I could pull it off. Dh works hard on it, but it's really difficult on him these days.
That got me thinking, and wishing, that there was someone, like we used to have, who would do that, put up a dog run with Dh, etc. But, not this guy for the run, etc.
Anyway, good luck with it. I wish that you had help with that.
Are those like Otter Pops? We got some at the warehouse a few months ago, but they were smaller boxes. Hopefully, they will enjoy them in this heat!
Have a wonderful day!
