My book blog now has its own home. Please visit me at LYNNE'S BOOK REVIEWS. Of course you're more than welcome to see what's going on in my personal life, but if you want to talk books, that's where I'll be!

My Dog Bites/Scratches/Bruises Photo Library

I have a folder in my photo library titled "dog bites/bruises/scratches." It being a slow news week, I thought I'd share. Sorry if they're gross.

Some I got while working at doggie daycare and some from volunteering in rescue. The dogs were a corgi, a dachshund, a mutt, a shepherd, and a pit bull, who all bit or scratched when redirecting because of aggression towards another dog. None were being aggressive towards me; I just happened to be in the way.












ER doctor stitching me up. He was so fun :)



He took this picture for me...haha!



















What can I say...it comes with the territory.

And to all the crazy pit bull haters out there: I've been working with pit bulls 1-4 days a week for two and a half years and have been bitten by ONE.

Backyard Makeover/Renovation is Complete!

I don't have a lot of "before" pictures, but the red brick wall went in an L-shape around the pool. Where the two lounge chairs are in the picture below shows the amount of deck space we had. None.
The black fence on the right in the picture is where our master bedroom addition is.


The black iron fence went around the brick wall and completely closed in the pool area and separated it from a big grassy area in the back yard.


Just taking down the black fence opened up the backyard a ton.  The red brick wall comes down...


The stone wall goes up...


Where the curved red brick wall was in the second picture from the top is now a waterfall...



We now have deck space!


Master bedroom/octagon reading room...


The new fence goes around the whole backyard behind the trees...







View from the kitchen...


Steps leading down to the driveway...


Driveway area...


Added some flowers and landscaping to the front too :)
