We are back !!!!

Yes we are back, our inter net server went down and was down for days!!!
Tom said I went into withdrawals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did miss you all !!!!

Tinker has been getting out of the fence!!! She has been digging out!!! Today while I was watering the garden she got out. I called and she came right back in the same hole she had dough to get out. Now this is the third time she has done it!! I am an old lady and can not be covering up holes she has dough !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have got to stop this some way!!!!
I don't leave her out by herself but I am doing other things in the yard while we are out. I would hate to have to tie her up but that seems like the way it will have to go!!!!!!
Glad to be back!!!

Love coming your way, Tinker & Fern


  1. im very glad you are back! we moved our blog Fern so please make sure to update your reader with our new address

  2. Hi Fern and Tinker, Happy and Tom, hope all is well down your way. It's turned wet, windy and cooler (around 72 degrees Fern, bbbrrr...) but we'll get snow on the mountains within the next month :)

  3. Welcome back! Uh, where do you go? ;)

  4. Tinker is going to keep you on your toes! Good that she comes right back though...


  5. Hi Fern! Glad you're back. Anything you can put in the hole Tinker dug, like a big rock or something? Good thing she's so well trained on that return!!

  6. Yay!!! Missed you Girlfriend!
    Tinker, you be GOOD!!!

  7. She doesn't look too big and this is what we used to do. We got a long rope and my husband fixed a clasp on each end. When I was working in the yard, I would clip one end on the dog's collar and the other on my belt loop. This long line is also useful when you are training the dog to come. You say the word and if the dog does not respond, you have the rope to bring her to you.

  8. I am sorry your internet was down and it must have drove you crazy. Thaqt little dog is sure keeping you on your toes. I hope she slows down a little. Hugs GJ xx

  9. Hey Tinker!
    Wow, I'm glad your puter got fixed and you're back with us. We missed you too. Say, better watch that digging out could end up with less room to run. Hmmmmm Maybe stay put in your yard, okay?! We don't want you to be in the doghouse! BOL
    Grr and Woof,

  10. With her being so new, I'd get a long line and keep her attached to you. Call her to you every once in a while and reward her like crazy when she comes. Maybe try taking some toys out to keep her busy, too, like a Kong with something frozen in it.

  11. We know what it's like!! Ivy is a digger too!!

  12. Hello All, sounds like everyone has good ideas to keep Tinker in your yard. If you had a solid garden pot maybe you could place that over/in front of, the hole. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  13. We're so glad you're back, Fern!
    We are always tied when we are outside so we understand this.

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  14. Welcome BACK!! I think that I agree... Tinker needs to be on a long leash or line.

  15. So good to see you again! Tinker you'd better stop digging!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  16. Glad to have you back, Addy is our digger so we know what you mean. Least she came back, Jazzi would have kept running if she were to get out!!

  17. AHHHH Hoke is a digger too...try spraying her with a hose once she starts. We had to bury out fence 12 inches into the ground so he couldn't get out. He doesn't listen when you call him...he just keeps going so we have to be careful. At least she listens to you!

  18. Glad you are back, Fern! I once had a poodle who was a digger. he would dig out of the backyard in any spot he could find! I could never keep him in! What a mess he was. Tootie scoots outside between our legs and she is gone in a flash, all over the yard. I'll be glad when she matures a little more.

  19. I think a lot of dogs love to dig... and when they get a hole bigger enough to crawl out... they'll run like hell.. hahahhahaha

    Glad she always comes when you call. I think Houndstooth's idea is good. Keep calling her once in a while.. to distract her. And reward her. She's a young dog with so much energy.

    Have fun and take care both of you!

  20. Hi Fern! Have you ever thought about a clothes line with a lead? That's what we use for Gracie, because we don't have a fence. I just saw the painting of Bambi.. that is beautiful!!! You must have been so happy with it!!
    I hope you're having a good week.. Tinker: stop being a little stinker, and escaping.. lol.

  21. wishing you a happy Wednesday! Rio from Barcelona

  22. Welcome back Fern! We have been on a partial break too and we are hoping to post and visit your blogs more regularly now.

    Have a good week!
