Executive Decision

I think you all knew it was coming....but the executive decision to make Dutch an outside dog was decided two days ago. You know our sufferings so I won't go into detail, but he just couldn't cut it as an inside dog. Oh, yes he was outside during the day but he would come in each evening and have movie night with us in the TV room and even for about two weeks he would sleep in there and ask to go out in the morning. This was all fine with us, until he decided that the couch was his. You see, if Dutch gets an inch, he takes ten miles. Oh and the night before our decision he some how turned the television on and was found sitting watching a DVD at 2 am. Daughter #2 found him and there was no way he could have used the remotes, which leaves only one other way.... pushing the power button on the side of the television.


So now I believe he is either the smartest dog in the world or the dumbest.... but now my flowerbeds live in peace, my lawn furniture isn't getting dragged around and my favorite bra isn't being stolen, because this is now Dutch's new state of being.... tied up outside with a freshly painted dog house.

And he seems to be completely okay with it. He gets his usual 3 to 4 walks a day and now is more content then we've ever seen him. I guess he needed more boundries.

So in the words of our filly Celeste who continually deciplines Dutch and puts him in his place when he is in her pasture...

Boy, it's about time you straighten up and fly right,
