Abby’s Heat Cycle Update
Abby is entering her 2nd week of lock-down and seems to be feeling much better about life. She has gotten her appetite back and is eating well again. She is still spending most of her time in my shop with a few carefully supervised outings each day. She likes to go with us to feed the chickens and gather eggs. The chickens don’t like it much but Abby thinks it is great fun to bark and threaten the chickens. I tie her to a post a few feet away from the chicken coop while I tend to the chickens with my kids.
When we put her back inside the shop she comes right to the window and begins to plead with us to let her out. She really doesn’t like being inside all day. She would much prefer the outdoor kennel and the fresh air, but I can’t risk any visits from fence climbing mongrels. Even though our rural Utah town has a leash law, it seems that only a few of us are abiding by the rules. Most of the dogs in town roam free all day and night. In the spring I hope to fence in a large portion of my back property for the dogs to have a little more elbow room.
