Way to go R_G! Even if you hadn't gotten to the top, you made the effort and didn't give up and you carried the pup with you and you did make it to the top. We all know going up stairs are harder than coming down! Congrats!

I can just hear R_G saying: "Let's get these puppies to the top!"

RE: Once more unto the breach...
I need to get you to carry *MY* puppies.

Sugar is about 8-9 months and getting close to 85lbs. Trooper is 3 and weighs just a pound or two more but she is already a little taller.

I put them out today on one of our rare rainy mornings and they both decided to play in the mud. So now, with my wife out of town, it seems that washing puppies is my next chore.

Yesterday Sugar (probably with Trooper's help) figured out how to remove one of the aging boards from our fence and escaped into our backyard neighbors yard. At least they are fully fenced so retrieving her wasn't a big deal, and Trooper didn't bother making the escape with her.

Today I took a bunch of that little heavy wire decorative fencing stuff and tried to encircle the mud puddles from the holes they have dug. We just spent a small fortune on new grass sod and she's trying to tear it up already.

The new grass is great where the puppies haven't attacked it but they were really starting to make a mess off one exit of the back deck but that is now more or less blocked so we'll see if it can recover and the puppies can stay a bit cleaner.

Retired_guy should be proud of climbing those steps carrying HIS puppy, but I'm proud of being able to go out with my new hip and chase down these BIG puppies and fix the fence so maybe they won't escape again -- for a while.

Sweet Dreams,

Yes, I have been trying to work that angle all day. My daughter let them get muddy once and tried to claim they have "self-cleaning fur" so I am hoping that will work if they percolate overnight.

Then, sheets, towels, and sofa will need cleaning, and herb will get to clean the garage completely since he will be living in there for a while.

Completely agree! Ours is indoors only so stays even cleaner.

However, I grew up with a dog, a Gordon Setter: she did NOT like the rain or mud so we were never faced with a muddy dog.
