This picture might seem a little strange to you considering we don't have any small children in the house anymore that need gates to protect them from getting where they shouldn't.
However, on the other side of the wall is this:
You see the cold weather is putting a damper on my kitchen! Since it's getting only in the single digits at night- it's not safe for Mack to be outside in those temps.
The only area in my house without carpet is my kitchen- therefore I have a 100 pound dog in my kitchen!!!!!!!
Do you feel my pain? I love him very much, but I'm much happier when I'm not having to go through gates, tripping over huge paws and having him put his head on my table.
I'm getting a little tired of sweeping, mopping, and cleaning the table numerous times a day!
Thank goodness this cold front should be ending tomorrow and I can reclaim my kitchen!
Edited to add: He's NOT potty trained- that's why he's in the kitchen!!
