|There is always congestion at the front door in the|
morning when I come down with most of the dogs
from the bedroom.
|Samantha is bringing up the rear of the first|
group of dogs who go out the front door.
(Theo, Trooper, Vince, Samantha)
|Samantha may not be the first out the door but|
she is the first to be fed. She wouldn't have it
any other way.
|Vince eats near Samantha adjacent to the big food|
barrel under the summer kitchen near the firepit.
|When it's muddy I bring Theo in the back door|
of the dog yard shed and close him in there to eat.
He can get himself covered in mud in a minute if
given the chance to run in the dog yard.
|Trooper eats on the front porch of the dog yard|
shed and then spends some time in the dog yard.
He doesn't get muddy because he doesn't run
around like an idiot.
|While the first group is eating, I get food bowls ready for the next.|
|Rain or shine, Maya always eats inside, in the|
front hallway. She is the slowest eater in the house.
|TJ is fed in the AC yard while Maya is eating|
|The dogs who spent the night in the office are next. That's Sparky|
in the rear and Scarlett (former foster boarding for a week).
|Scarlett eats on the front porch and it doesn't take her very long.|
She will then wander around the yard for a bit before following
me back inside.
|Sparky takes Theo's place in the dog yard shed|
and eats his meal there. He will then join Trooper
in the dog yard while Theo comes back indoors
to keep him out of the mud.
|Max spends in the night in the office along with|
Scarlett, Sparky, and Jack. I take him out to
Sparky's former kennel, which we call "Rottweiler
World" to get a headstart on his food, mixed with
canned food to hide his pills.
|This old metal locker is the best thing I ever|
brought home from the dump.
|It holds three food containers and is rodent proof|
and dog proof out in the dog yard shed.
|Sparky and Trooper spent about an hour outside|
in the dog yard after eating, then they came back in.
