Benton is growing up. At 35 lbs. he's the perfect size and we're hoping he will stop growing, RIGHT NOW. He's a cutie and we're loving him most of the time. Every now and then though his puppy antics are trying, but mostly he's super.
Although we didn't want to fence our property, we're doing it. Our outdoor/indoor life with all the doors wide open all summer long got us to thinking about our new pup. At some point he could be trained to stay within our property borders, but for now, he's still an unreliable puppy.
We're putting up a wire fence that, through the years, will be smothered in foliage making it invisible. For now we can see it, but barely.
I failed to post pictures of our finished screens. With the foilage filling in it's almost impossible to see them in some places. What we love is more privacy in our bed/bath and loosing the view of the neighbor's storage area. Plus, the metal roofing we used on the screens (matching the siding of the mainliving building), extends the architecture into the garden, enhancing both the buildings and the outdoor spaces.
