We still have some work to do finishing up the fencing but the novelty of a private backyard is too much for any of us to resist. Even on a long line Shiva has enjoyed kicking it outside. There is just the right amount of room for fetching frisbees and chewing on sticks.
Apparently, we are good times. After watching us for a while, the little Yorkie from next door decided the grass was greener on our side and she now makes a habit of slipping under the fence to join in the fun.
I was a little nervous at first as Shiva doesn’t know that many small dogs and tends to play rough. Amazingly, the two hit it off and they enjoy chasing each other around the lawn. Well, the Yorkie enjoys it anyway. Shiva mostly just looks confused as the tiny puppy darts around her in circles.
We’ll see if the other dog is as brave once the fence is completed and Shiva can run all out.
Until then, we’ll just have fun basking in the summer sunshine.
