About Me
Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

I love my dog, but my dog loves my neighbor's yard. My adopted Labrador needs hours of playtime each day to stay fit, but she used to be a master of escaping no matter how close of an eye I kept on her. After a few too many holes dug in flower beds, I splurged on a tall chain link fence and finally ended her romps on other properties. Now my neighbors smile and wave when we meet in our shared driveway instead of giving me a wary look. Sharing my new found love for fences is just one way I hope to give back to others.
