I don't know why, but the dead grass pee spots don't start happening till it gets hot out and then we have them everywhere, but the grass always comes back by spring.

Before. See how narrow the space between the sidewalk and house is?



Here's a shot of most of the rest of the house front:


Still need to tackle landscaping in front of that deck.


Back of the house pic, prior to new deck being built. Deer don't like Yarrow (the yellow flowers). I still haven't replaced any of the landscaping which had to come down to build the new deck (which is almost the same as the previous one, just not falling down.)



New deck...looks like your style, TN. Except now the vertical rails don't go all of the way down to the deck surface. That's so we can push the snow off the deck without running into the rails.



Edited to add:

And looky what I found, a...whatdoyoucall it?...front elevation:

Good night all.
I took a nap (not on purpose; it was supposed to last longer) between 12:30 and 3:00 AM and only just now am getting sleepy again. So....

Morning DOC & LDi - that's what Pops says to Andrew.
- Dad is the supervisor, because I know how to do the work
- "and you can't learn, how to do the work...if one expects me, to assist to much"
- so Larry puts the Boss hat on & takes some pictures
- very tiring, it all adds up / delivering jokes and all, with sonny & JJ

Beau fired up the grill last night (during a light rain).
- had Texas Steer burgers & home cut fries
- will post photos later
- TN needs some serious BLT competition...his head got proudly, a little big

Morning Kenny.

Bummed out for you.

Farming is a hard and unpredictably predictable life.

Thank you for your hard work and patience!

Thanks for all the house pic's Mel--TN, yours haven't loaded yet. I don't know why your hosta's are so late--mine were all up early this year in spite of the very cold month (I forget which month it was0) but it was the month they usually come up from the dead lump they've been since November. And the new fuchsia's mostly all have flower buds now. And the mystery flower I ended up with in two raised beds are putting up blooms--still have no idea what they are but must have been something that likes to get planted in the fall so that they are half grown by spring (surviving frost and very cold spells and torrential winter rains)--if I ever figure it out I'll let you know--ya'll know that pictures are highly unlikely.

Overcast this morning in Portland (left side) supposed to not really have any rain until late in the day and temperatures are supposed to rise back up to normal (high 60's and low 70's through the week).

And this is the formal notification that today is 1)Toad's 1/2 birthday--he's 13.5 today and 2) I'm going this morning for that epidural injection (of a steroid of some sort) and I don't guarantee you'll hear from me for a day or two--I have no idea what I'm supposed to feel like after this--and yes someone IS driving me to and from the place they are doing this.

UGH! I hate being the sickee I've been lately--I really hate not being able to bend over and pull spring weeds everywhere. And I also hate the fact that Clark (cat) thinks he can run out the back door and down the side of the house and eat a pile of grass before I catch up with him (but he's right--he can zip past me and out and I can't catch up until he's around the side of the house--so he eats as much grass and he can and then when caught and returned to the house washes his feet and pukes up the grass--talk about Dober goats. I NEED to scrub the kitchen floor!!! Life is NOT fair.

Over and out...

Morning BeauBear and ALL!

I really, really need to get Rustine road worthy again!

I wouldn't be taking a day off without pay/occurence, if she was!

Ugh!

After she is up to par mechanically, she will then have to have an electrical workover.

So much crap to do this Spring!

Morning chickens.

SO and I have recently inherited 2 new "dobermans", after losing both of his parents this year.

One is a 16 year old, long-haired, all natural black and white female doberman that lives indoors. The other is an 8 year old, short-hair, all natural, white, male doberman with black spots that lives outdoors. They are both potty trained.

The inside doberman (16yo) is extremely matted around her neck and belly area. We are bringing her to the vet tomorrow to see what they can do for her (might need to be shaved). I know there are a few people here who have dobermans of this rare type, do any of you have advice for caring for a long haired doberman? We have her room set up with a baby gate at the door so Radar can't get too curious. She sticks to herself and hides most of the time.

The outside doberman will be joining us in a week or so, once the inside doberman is settled. He will probably be transformed go mostly indoor, as we live in town.

Inside doberman will not come out of her hiding spot for a photo, so you will have to wait till I can get one.

One is a 16 year old, long-haired, all natural black and white female doberman that lives indoors. The other is an 8 year old, short-hair, all natural, white, male doberman with black spots that lives outdoors. They are both potty trained.

The inside doberman (16yo) is extremely matted around her neck and belly area. We are bringing her to the vet tomorrow to see what they can do for her (might need to be shaved). I know there are a few people here who have dobermans of this rare type, do any of you have advice for caring for a long haired doberman? We have her room set up with a baby gate at the door so Radar can't get too curious. She sticks to herself and hides most of the time.

The outside doberman will be joining us in a week or so, once the inside doberman is settled. He will probably be transformed go mostly indoor, as we live in town.

Inside doberman will not come out of her hiding spot for a photo, so you will have to wait till I can get one.

Oh boy! Well, I'd suggest if you can, you gate off a room for your new "Dobes" with a gate that has a space under it that they can easily get underneath, that Radar can't, so they can get away from him and have a safe zone. Litter boxes and food should be in that room. Get yourself as many tall cat trees as you can afford. There should be one in the safe room, and one in the room where you all hang out together - the more vertical space cats have, the happier they are. They tend to like having a vertical escape route from dogs (and babies!) and a space up high to observe the world. They also tend to like small cubby-hole spaces to hole up and observe, so those enclosed bed spaces are nice for them, too - I have several "cat cave" spots all around the house. I'd recommend 2 litterboxes in multiple spots if you can swing it, especially since one of them has been an outdoor kitty.

With your long hair, you'll need to get him used to being groomed regularly so you don't get mats again. Not sure if he was groomed regularly before, so you'll have to play this by ear and see how it goes. Get the appropriate brushes and make sure you're really combing out under the "armpits" and the tail, where it's most likely to mat. There are some good cat groomers in the area if you need to make some appointments while you're training him to accept grooming. I know you may need to shave him down right now, but hopefully you can avoid that in the future.

Just try to keep an eye on the stress levels - transitioning to a busy home with a dog and a baby could be very hard on them, and stressed cats can start doing things you will not like- namely, peeing outside their litter box. That's really hard to cope with, so if you see signs of stress you want to act on it sooner rather than later. There are lots of ways to intervene, including meds.

Feel free to message me any time - I've been through almost all of it with cats, since I've owned them for many many years, and also fostered what feels like a million of them

Good luck with your new additions, and thank you for taking them in.

I knew someone that put a cheap temporary screen door on their baby's room to keep the aliens at bay. Everyone was able to see each other and get used to things.

Might be worth a try?

Thanks MC!

Long hair dobe used to be SO's cat, and as far as I know is used to being brushed/groomed fairly regularly. His mom got a little depressed towards the end and stopped doing it as often. She seems like she is making the transition pretty well. We let her stay in the heated attached garage her first few nights, so she could start to adjust to the new noises and smells without being disturbed. Now we have her in her own bedroom, no Radar allowed. She is kind of a recluse cat, so we haven't moved the gate up in the doorway yet, but plan to in the coming days, if she feels like venturing out. I'm gonna look into buying some cat trees/making some hideouts for her. The room she is in has a few plastic totes in it (we don't have a lot of storage), so she is able to hide pretty well when she wants to, which is most of the time. She seems to be eating pretty well and drinking water too.

I've been letting radar sniff her crate/towels, and going back through some basic OB stuff with him. He is very curious, but doesn't dwell on it like he would have a year ago. I tell him leave it and he moves on to baby diaper smelling duty.

So far she has her food and litter box in her room, and has been using it despite the stress I'm sure she is feeling. Hopefully that continues.

Nolan is oblivious to the new addition.
