Security breach

My dog’s fenced in yard experienced a breach of security this week after the gate was left wide open.

We had our yard sprayed for pests and the worker forgot to close the gate behind him.

This is something I usually double check when anyone works in our yard. But sometimes life gets in the way and it slipped my mind.

When I let my dogs out later that afternoon only one came back when I opened the door and called them.

I was first panicked and then furious with myself for forgetting to double check the gate. Although it should be a reasonable expectation to have your yard and home left as it was found if someone needs to work on your property. People are only human and mistakes are made.

But to all of the workers who must enter someone’s yard for any number of reasons: meter reading, pest control, yard work, AC repair, the list goes on… Please, please try remember to shut and latch the gate behind you.

This small step will keep dog mommas (and little kid mommas) everywhere grateful.

Thankfully, I found my advantage-taking dog frolicking only a street over. He was hot and thirsty but otherwise unharmed. And for that I am truly grateful.
