We have been having beautiful weather here, so the kids been out in the sun.

Well I'm starting to think the tennis court is a bad idea for them, I got Jack that tore of his nail down to the quick..bleeding like crazy and Sadie don't really know why she is limping, but she is!

Two dogs limping wanting loving..lol, you know how that goes.

My Neighbors Golden attempted to jump the net, got hung up and crashed down on his chest..he laid there for a good 5 minutes trying to catch his breath...poor boy! He is ok after that ordeal...scared me to death!

Needless to say we need to find another place to go!

Can you untie the net and roll it up so they can run around safely. we cant have those sweet pups getting hurt. Give them both a big hug and kiss from me.

Oh Claudia! The poor babies! It must have been hard on you , as well. Gentle hugs from us, please. We went through the same thing with the bridge boys before we bought our home.. it is so hard to find a local safe place for them to run off leash and blow off steam. Hoping you can find a place that suits all of you. :crossfing

I hope all is better at your house. Reading about Jack's claw and the neighbor's dog makes me cringe.
I hope Sadie is no longer limping. Maybe it was from the hard surface.
Give them a hug and kiss from me.

Running on concrete is bad, bad, bad for any dog. Blown pads are just the beginning. I'd definitely look for a grassy field somewhere!

I know Jack tore his pads a few times, there is just not anything around here where
I can take them, to and let them of leash.

It's time to look for a new house with a big yard....soonest DH gets his SS. Praying it's soon, it's been almost 2 years!

Have you considered some kind of doggy booties for Jack to wear while at the tennis court?
I dont' know if they would help, but they might.
