Big Thanks, Little Thanks: A happy fence

By Bunny van Sickle


In August I made a trip to the local animal shelter looking for a particular dog I had seen an ad in the paper about but Missy needed to be spayed which would have been $70 and she was too hyper for me to handle.

I am a senior citizen without the strength to handle this small 10 month old pug mixed puppy. The shelter worker, who is a lot younger than I am, even had a hard time controlling Missy.

I went there with the intent to adopt a dog that had been spayed or neutered. I found a huge gentle giant, a Border Coollie and Great Pyrenees mix that had been neutered. As it turns out this dog will be one year this month and he would have been put down last week but I was not going to let that happen. He only cost $20 to adopt. He did need a fenced in yard, but my yard was not fenced in. However I was able to keep him at a friends' house who has a totally fenced-in yard..

One of my sister's co-workers told her about a fencing company that does an excellent job so she called Southeast Fencing. A couple of days later Rick O'Hearon of Southeast Fencing called me and I told him where I live and he came to by home and found out what I needed and the date I needed the fence. I needed the work done by Sept. 2. He told me it would be in by Tuesday or Wednesday of that week. This was only giving him five days to do the work and he is a very busy man so I knew he would be pushing to get my job done by the date.

Then Rick, his brother Ted and Ron Dalton showed up at my house and they had the fence up in about three hours. After they left I was able to walk my dog up to the house. He is very happy and so am I. The quality of the work is great and the price was just right.

Once again guys, I'm telling you I'm happy but this time from the tip of my dog's happy wagging tail. Why don't you come back and take a look at the dog? Since he's now in the fenced-in yard, he will not be afraid of your truck
