Some people . . .
. . . just shouldn't be allowed anywhere near animals.. The short version of the story is that we've gained a stray dog who wandered into our yard. There is little question that this poor critter deserves a loving, caring home after all that she's been through. She's absolutely petrified of everyone and everything. If I ever find out where she came from . . . there'll definitely be more than just a wee bit of trouble. Anyway, she definitely deserves a chance (and is much better behaved than our own four-footed whirling dervish), so she's on the waiting list for a foster home (while we, too, are actively looking for a permanent home for her).
Belated deck photos
Yes, the deck is completed, although the mosquitoes are doing their best to ensure that we don't enjoy it too much. We're just waiting for the gates to arrive, which will hopefully be soon. I've got to take some more pictures because the ones I've currently got don't show the finished flower beds around the deck.
