With apologies to Paul McCartney...

Got this song stuck in my head as I made more repairs to the dog pen fence today.



I made up some new lyrics as I worked though.

I'm fixing a hole where the dog gets out
to stop my Belle from wandering
Where she will go

I'm filling the holes that ran under the fence
to keep my Belle from wandering
Where she will go

And it really doesn't matter
If she's wrong, she's right
Where she belongs she's right
Where she belongs

See the Shepherd ambling there
Who isn't in her pen
And wonder why she isn't at my door

I'm cursing at Belle in a colorful way
because that dog is wandering
There she will go

And it really doesn't matter
If she's wrong, she's right
Where she belongs she's right
Where she belongs

Silly neighbors calling me
They worry and they ask of me
Why I do not keep her in the yard

I'm taking the time to fix me a fence
just like I did yesterday
And she still goes

I'm fixing a hole where the dog gets out
to stop my Belle from wandering
Where she will go
Where she will go

I'm fixing a hole where the dog gets out
to stop my Belle from wandering
Where she will go



And of course after half an hour of work, thinking it done, I went back in the house. Five minutes later, a neighbor called to tell me that she was out again.

Five minutes.

  6. Perhaps there is a business opportunity you are overlooking? Consider hiring out as a dog containment evaluator. Belle for the dogs perspective, and you for structural design and overview.
    Does anyone in your area specialize in dog proofing yards? Both ingress and outgress? That also look good? Seems to me that there may be some broad and narrow angles to work there as a possible income generator.
