The Bicycle Rides Away

My mother finally convinced my nephew to ride his bike to the store and buy some milk.  He went outside to get his bike and it was gone.  We have no idea when it was taken since I only remember him riding it once about 2 or 3 weeks ago.  I remember thinking that he shouldn't leave it in the front yard and then I didn't remember seeing it anymore.  Maybe the same person that stole the bike stole my puppy too!  Wouldn't that be strange if some day I get a call that my grown puppy is at the pound and they scanned his microchip and traced him back to our group.  Well, it's a better thought that thinking a hawk stole him right?

Yesterday I continued working on my puppy fort.  It doesn't look very nice but it does provide a little bit of shade for the dogs and for my sliding door. And provides some cover from birds of prey.  I would like to get a patio cover built here but I don't think that is going to happen soon.  I have not found anyone who builds them yet and the one person that I know is only here Jan, Feb, and March.  I'll keep looking for someone with construction skills.  It would be great to have it built before the Summer rains.

Oh no, not such a safe area. Is the back area a bit more secure?

There is a 6 foot block wall in the back and both gates are locked. I thought it was more secure but then when the puppy disappeared...I'm not sure anything is secure any more.
