Uallis likes to go into the woods to lay in a nearby creek. I have no issue with that...however, Uallis isn't allowed to go into the woods unsupervised because there is an area that he can crossover that meets the township road to my house...too close to the road for my comfort. The problem is that Uallis likes to make a beeline straight for the creek at really inconvenient times, like first thing in the morning when I need to get ready for work...lol I had a "wonderful" idea and I was sure it was going to work and the dogs would love it. I got them their own wading pool so Uallis would have no need to go to the creek to cool off when he could do it right outside the door to the house! It didn't work... Eddie says, "What are you doing, Dad? Is this my new water bowl?" "Eddie does get thirsty sometimes...but geezz Dad! This is a little overboard!" Uallis..."I didn't realize there was water in it...I got water up my nose!" "Okies...I bored now...this grass looks tasty...Uallis will pretend he's a cow instead of swim..." "What are we going to do now, Moms?" They have no interest in the wading pool after their initial inspection of it. I thought for sure they would at least get in it with it being so hot today...but no go. They just drink out of it. lol So now, my next wonderful idea is to turn it into a sandbox...which knowing my luck, they will ignore and instead dig a hole right beside the sandbox... What a waste of 20 bucks...lol Oh, here is another shot of Uallis...a full body shot. I took this because it was requested on another forum and I thought I'd share it with all of you as well... Thanks for looking!
