My other 2 dogs didn't get adopted. Well, one almost did but the people wanted him to be an outdoor-only dog who guarded their chickens. We aren't allowed to adopt out outdoor-only dogs and I really don't think he would have done well with chickens.
I have a backup plan in case the keys for the gate locks on my new house aren't found. My realtor said that I might get the house keys as soon as Tuesday night so if that happens I will stop by Harbour Freight, the cheap tool store, and buy some bolt cutters. I saw some online for $12. That way I can cut off one of the gate locks so that the electric company can get in to the backyard to read the meter. I don't want the power getting shut off and then getting charged a turn on fee just because they can't read the meter because the gate's locked.
