Enter: THE BABY GATE
Y'all, I don't know why this has never dawned on me before. Why have I never thought about forcing the dogs to stay upstairs with a baby gate?
Right now, my dear friend from college, Sarah, and her precious little one, Silas, are visiting for a few days. We've only had this method in operation for about 16 hours, so I'll let you know how it turns out.
So far, so good. The dogs are happy. Gladys feels safe, because no one can get to her, yet she can see what's going on. It seems like the perfect relationship.
Have a lovely weekend!
