  •  Cute! Hang a Bell By the Door. (9+ / 0-)

    You can teach them to ring it when they need to go out. I've seen new dogs learn it from the old ones without any human teaching.

    We have doggie doors in our screen/storm doors, but if the inner door is closed they have to ask.

      •  "A very mixed breed,"--the best kind! (7+ / 0-)

        Chula is beautiful.  She looks a good deal like our late "terrier mix," without a Schnauzer "beard."  And our terrier mix was super protective of me, especially as she aged.  

        I will be posting a Memorial Tribute to her soon.  Lost her one year ago on the 9th (of January).

        Out of seven dogs, she had the most mild and even temperment of all.  As much as I loved by pure breed dogs, truthfully, most of them have had a bit of a quirky temperment (albeit a very sweet and good personality).

        So, let's hear it for all the "Chula's of the World."
