A backyard is such a wonderful thing to have. Being hounds, our recall isn’t the best, so we are not allowed to run free in unfenced areas. Mom doesn’t like or trust the invisible fences, so we are lucky to have a regular fenced yard. A yard is good for so many things dogs and humans might want to do.
As you know, sometimes we enjoy racing and chasing around. Being able to run around helps us stay in good condition and burns calories so we can have more treats. Running doesn’t always have to be with another dog or person, it can be simply racing around with a favorite outdoor toy.
Bailie enjoys sniffing around tracking rabbits and sometimes squirrels. This area where she is standing is where many rabbits get in and out of our yard. We actually caught one there a couple years ago as it tried to escape but got caught in the fence.
Olivia finds prancing around teasing others with a stolen toy to be a lot of fun. Being young, she doesn’t just hang out doing nothing very often like Bailie and I do.
In the evenings, Bailie loves to just lie in the grass, sniff the breezes, and watch the world go by. For her it is very relaxing.
We have a few chew bones around the yard and Olivia loves to hang out and chew on them sometimes. Being outside is a nice change from indoors with all the fresh air.
You all know I love to roll around in the grass, but I also love to stretch out. It feels so good to have a good stretch. Mom says when she was looking for a house when she moved back from Germany, she had some criteria. One was a deck, and the other was an already fenced backyard. We are super thankful she found the fenced backyard! Does your dog have a backyard she loves?
