Even though Michael and I will let them romp and run around our huge garden, I want to train them, that when they've had enough exercise, they will be herded into their fenced off area. It will be quite large enough for seven puppies to play with each other and when tired, to flop down in the shade, or meander back into the hut to sleep. The area is 5meters x 2.5meters with a gate which Michael will keep closed at all times.
Sekaminya and his team of three arrived at 8.30 yesterday morning. Once they'd sunk the poles, and laid the chicken-wire on the ground to measure it, I went out to check on the proceedings. I reminded him that he had to leave an opening for a gate. He asked me how big should the gate be, When I said I need to fit through it, he picked up the metal tape measure and held it in front of me, between my waist and hips. He checked the tape, nodded and said: Mmm, 24 inches; that is how wide I will make the gate!
The whole day Princess watched the proceedings from either the inside of the hut where she was feeding the pups, or near the outer fence while she was taking a break. The pups, they didn't turn a hair!

By 4pm the fencing was almost complete

And throughout the entire construction process, the pups slept ...

Hope you're all having a wonderful week.
