No fences!

My neighbors are replacing the fence around their yard which means lots of construction trucks (doing drains and gutters too...)  All this means we cannot let Watson out in the yard.

Has anyone ever dealt with a dog with depression?  They took down the fence last Friday.  So since then we have been taking him out about every 2-3 hours.  This is still not nearly as often as he went into the backyard for a quick squirrell chase.  For the first few days he was just confused...then he whimpered a lot at the door...today he isn't eating - not even bacon.

Talked with the contractor and it will be mid next week until the fence goes back up...trying to think of options.

This does link to quilting...I'm keeping him back in my sewing room most of the day since that is the furthest point from the noise.

However the likes to sit on my lap...doesn't lead to productive days.

And needless to say Dobby is really not happy the dog has taken over his space.

So in all this what is on the design wall?  My leader and ender project from 2016!  Looks a bit like fences to me...with a bit of luck the real fence will be completed before my quilt-top is!

Oh, poor Watson! Poor you and Dobby! Construction times are so stressful. I hope the fence goes up quickly so those squirrels can be kept in line! Lots of walks in the meantime seem like the only choice.
The lozenge quilt looks wonderful! Too bad you won't have time to work on it. Ha!

Is there a dog park in your area?

You could try a 40 ft. leash. I use those with my dogs and they love it. It gives them a sense of freedom without really being free.

Poor little guy! He'll be excited the first time he goes out and sees a new fence. I'll bet he'll leave his "mark" on every post. :)

Your project does look like fencing. Seems appropriate. : )
I really hope these contractors are among the rare ones that finish when they say they will (or even earlier)!
