I didn't have time to hem and add grommets to my awning fabric so I just bought a large tarp instead and attached it under the eaves so that the rain won't get in. My mom and pups arrived this evening. She had 3 puppies on Saturday but one didn't make it. I'll just assume that was the runt. She is a 50 pound rottweiler mix and she is very sweet. I hope she doesn't bark tonight and make my other dogs bark. I have a no-bark collar but I didn't get it ready. I was hoping I wouldn't need it.
