(amazingly, they still have the ability to inhale and exhale.)
so today i pulled the window screens out of the storage room and took the screen door off it’s hinges and i did this…

all by myself. and while i was re-screening the windows and the door i was making a promise to myself. wanna know what it was? i will never, ever, ever, never, never, ever own dogs again. i know, never say never, but i’m thinking i mean it this time. and i give permission to all the internets to slap me cross eyed if you ever hear me say or think i’m thinking, “maybe we should get another dog.”

  1. Pets are both great and not great.

    I personally like not having pets so that I keep a very clean house.

    Too bad my kids make messes. /sigh

    bridge – i would love having no pets. and one day i will. tm

  2. bwhahahahahahahahaha….

    but look at you with the new skills! Check out tm’s mad rescreening skills!!!

    winey – i am my father’s daughter!! tm

  3. wow, its amazing what you can do when you have no other choice

    carrie – i know. desperate times call for desperate measures!! tm

  4. wow I am super impressed – I wish I could do this – our cat put a two inch gash in our screen!

    notgoth – you can do it!! if i can anyone can. tm

  5. That’s why we crate train…no that’s not quite true–we crate train so I don’t kill the dog if it did something like that. It is wonderful to come home to a good dog waiting in her crate instead of a mess though.

    You did a great job. Maybe I’ll have to teach myself to do this, instead of waiting a year and a half for DH to fix our screens.

    mom24 – we have crate trained in the past. but had an awful experience with an older dog once and so no longer try with older dogs. i know we shouldn’t give up so easily…
    and i, too, got tired of waiting!! tm
