We also had a big surprise for Abi - Molly! We didn't tell her we got a puppy and decided to let her walk into the house to a sweet surprise. She was so excited! It was so fun to see her so happy. They played and loved on each other and she took good care of her all weekend.
Saturday morning we were all up early (thanks Molly) and I took Dad to the airport around 10am for his flight back to Bama. Before Dad left he hooked us up with a sweet gate in-between the kitchen and living room. It's like a baby gate but has a door to open and close s you don't have to jump over it or move it out of the way every time. We like it a lot and hopefully we will be using it for more than just a dog before too long! ;)
We also got lots of estimates on our new fence, which we are hoping to have up in the next month or so. We have this entire rigmarole to get through with the HOA before we can start construction, but we will get there soon enough. Saturday afternoon we took Molly down to the American Tobacco Trail for a long walk. She is still learning to walk on her leash so it takes forever to get anywhere. As soon as we take her off though she is great, walks right next to us. Aus and I have been walking her off the leash around our 'hood and she does so well. We have a nice routine each evening with her making a few laps around the loop. She listens well and walks either on our heels or right in front of us on the sidewalk. We are quite impressed for only 7 weeks old!
