You are truly living the high life, my friend! I may someday join the ranks of the riding lawn mower legion, we will see how tired I get of push mowing the larger yard at our new house 🤣

But...if it comes down to a riding mower purchase or a golf cart purchase, since we live on the course, I know where my money is going 🤑

Our lawn is not large enough to justify a riding mower, but fortunately I have a wife that LIKES to mow... what luck!!  😃  p.s.  I still help out though.

Sorry to hear about the pup... That's tough. Glad you were able to work it out, tho!

Just goes to show that some dogs just aren't suited for a young family.  

Was gonna say the same thing - most shelters, even though they really want to place animals, will be ("should be" quote-unquote) honest in whether they think a dog is / is not suitable for a house with young kids.

Even so, and even with a good dog, it can still take up to a year for them to adjust to your house, activity level, schedule, etc.

My friend has a 13 year old Welsch Terrier and welcomed his 1st child 2 years ago. That breed of dog is bred for hunting little critters, so my friend was rightly concerned about how the dog would react to the new squirming 7lb amoeba in the next room. It wasn't a great scenario: had to keep them in separate corners of the house with multiple gates in between. Nobody really knew whether the dog wanted to say "hi" or commit murder.

I'm happy to report that once the baby started walking the dog recognized him as a family member and not a chew toy. Now the old grumpy dog and the devilish 2 year old live in relative harmony.

They are expecting child #2 in April/May now and the prospect of doing the routine again has them asking me if I want a 13 year old Welsch Terrier every time I go over there. I love that dog, but no...no I don't want a 13 year old dog that eats babies.

Yeah - we thought we did all the right things. We did a lot of investigating into the breed, our neighbor had an Airedale and he was a gentle soul, also bought our Airedale as a young puppy so there were no issues from past owners. He seemed fine until we brought home our youngest from the hospital. Guess he didn't like having as baby in the house.

Sounds about right!

Sounds like a prime opportunity to practice the employment of deception and distraction techniques, sometimes camouflage and most definitely timing of movements in and out of the house to provide the illusion that nothing is going on.  Short of Jedi mind tricks, it's about all that's left that can be done.  Good luck ☘️

I just ordered a PXG hybrid last night , see what happens.

Good morning everyone, bit of a mixed day we took in a new dog a while back and it was going ok, a little high energy at times but overall pretty good. Well this past weekend she snipped and dew blood on our youngest who was close as the dog was trying to fish out her bone from the couch. She has snipped at us when trying to clip her nails, so it was time for her to move on. The kids always seemed to stress her out with their energy. We have a home she can go to and extended family member that lives by themselves which will be a much better set up for her. Tough situation but think we found the best possible solution for all involved.

Hope everyone has a better day than that.

That’s a tough one, making the decision to give a dog a new home. 😟

Good morning everyone! Since I'm getting to drive one of the EV's we build this week I'm sitting in a different parking lot today charging up. I was a nervous wreck driving inside the plant because I've only done it twice in twelve years. The morning coffee is warm and delicious. I hope y'all have a good day.

Driving in the plant? That sounds huge.

I have actually driven inside the building once, we were checking a car for rattles inside the cockpit and I had to return it to finish. It's a weird feeling to drive indoors.
