It started out with a pretty heavy frost but warmed up to the mid 60's with clear, sunshiny skies. I opened up the kitchen door and just let the dogs come and go as they wish. Cos and Ang, ran around, hung outside a while and then came in and out as the mood struck them. Mal just hung around outside. Aside from the obvious benefits of having a fenced yard with three dogs, my greatest joy comes that it allows Mal to just hang in the yard. He loves to lay in the grass and watch the comings and goings of the neighborhood.
