Strangers in the Backyard and A Brand New Fence

There have been strangers in my backyard for the past 2 days! And part of our fence is gone!  It is so cool! I can see the people across the street and every one that walks by from my deck. My backyard looks a whole lot bigger. It hasn't been a whole lot of fun, tho. Mom keeps taking me outside on the leash and I don't get to play at all. There are people in my backyard that I don't know. I don't like them being outside all day banging away and mom won't let me stay out there and supervise. Mom says they are coming back again today and we will have a brand new fence up! I guess that means that I won't be able to see across the street any more. 
Last night dad had to go with us with a flashlight and then this morning before he left for work we all went out because it was still dark. I am ready to go again but mom says we have to wait until it gets lighter outside. She doesn't like being outside in the dark. I told her I won't let anybody get her, but she still won't go. Dad is really excited about the new fence because it will have two new gates, too. That must be really cool because he keeps talking about it. I am not really sure what that means, but if dad likes it, it has to be good!


Note from Mom: I will be SO glad when this is all done! I don't like taking him out on a leash to potty! He isn't used to it and he takes a whole lot longer to go. Plus the fact that he can't play and run at all and that means a lot of pent up energy right now. It should be finished today if the rain holds out. 
The two gates are a pretty big deal to his dad. He is able to drive full circle around the house and he likes to be able to park his truck inside the gate when he wants or wash my car by bringing it around where it is paved. That is pretty nice. We already had gates but they looked pitiful and too easy to open from the outside. This will be much more secure.
