It’s remodeling time

Either Kali got tired of the arrangement in the run or there’s some critter there. She’s been busy rearranging the furniture (heavy pavers).



SAM_1783He put things back-He liked it the old way. The purpose was to keep critters out. We remember a couple of years ago:


The fire department had to take away a rattlesnake who took to the run. When He rebuilt the barrier, a small spider quickly fled the run. Really Kali, all that work for a spider? And the dogs have the nerve to call me a bird-brain.

Reminder-if you haven’t entered the contest, you have a little over a day to get your entry in.

  1. Yikes on the rattlesnake. We have them here too. I don’t mess with them. They can do whatever they want as long as they stay out of my space.

    Have a terrific day. ☺

    • This one didn’t. That’s why there’s a barrier and chicken wire. We haven’t seen one in there since and both dogs went to “snake school”.

  2. I wouldn’t fly too low with all those snakes around.

  3. Looks like a Goldilocks scenario to me. This paver is too long this way…this one is too short this way…this one is juuuussst r.i.g.h.t. 🙂
    Eek on the rattlesnakes-they scare the be-Jesus outa me.

  4. Mom wishes that we had a run. It is too difficult to walk terriers that don’t want to move outside. Sid comes to a screeching halt all of a sudden and mom gets jerked around. She is not happy.

  5. We’re with Kali…..if a critter, no matter how small, invades YOUR territory, you’ve got to move stuff to get it!

  6. Well, we are glad that Kali ROUSTED OUT the …. INVADER…. butt OMD…. what if it had been another Rattling Snake???????????????????? OMD OMD THAT is SCARY… We would not like coming Face to Fang with a Rattling Snake.

  7. I would like a paver driveway when you get that excavation done can you come and start here?
