I can't possibly be the only person jumping up and down at the wicked witch neighbor leaving, can I? Sayonara, Peace-out, Bye Felicia!!!! I just love love love how that worked out! I totally get the barking, Milo is a barker. Have you tried the Pet Corrector? Sally told me about it, works for Milo. Roxy must really think she's in heaven. I am so happy you have her!!!! Can't wait for more pictures and videos 🙂

I'm not ashamed to admit I'm doing the happy dance too! I was afraid to ask about the neighbor. YAAAA!!! 

Roxy and Wyatt have so much in common. The good news is you are doing everything right and that you will both eventually reach an understanding that will create more harmony in the home. The bad news is you'll probably lose a few more screens in the process! 😉 Just kidding. 

I know that when we lock Wyatt outside in situations like that, the result is often disastrous. He just wants to be next to us and manage the interactions with everyone. He's surprisingly quiet when we allow him to be there. But the moment we banish him from the activity, all hell brakes loose. Maybe the next time someone comes over you can show Roxy the dog door by sticking your hand through and bribing her to come in with some treats?

I, too, am doing the happy dance over no more nasty neighbor news!  Good riddance!

And I am, I'm sorry Rene and Jim, Laughing Out Loud at that last sentence.  Perfect turn of phrase right there. Very simple from Wyatt's point of view: just let him manage and all will be well!

Delighted with the Roxy updates - she truly is a beauty. And she and Wallee are too cute.

On October 27, 2016, nearly 6 months after amputation, and 18 months since his cancer likely started, we lost Pofi to a recurrence of Soft Tissue Sarcoma in his spine quite suddenly.  His canine sister also succumbed to cancer on March 1, 2019 - we lavished her with our love in the interim, but life was never quite the same without her only real canine friend. Cliff kitty had to leave us, too, suddenly, in August 2019. Lucia kitty grieved all these losses, but helped us welcome two new Lurchers into our home and our lives, Shae and Barley.
