How’d we do it?

Posted by laurie on August 19, 2010

A couple of you asked how we keep the boys out of the way when we eat. First let me say that they’re not 100%, and if we eat in the dining room all bets are off, but we generally DON’T have doggies begging at the table. You just have to be consistent and persistent. ANY time they move into the kitchen you get up from your seat and move them away, verbally and/or physically. This makes for unpleasant dining and a bit of exercise for the first few days, but believe me, it works. Spenser’s spot used to be the little rug near the table, and although it wasn’t technically out of the room, he did stay put. Scooter required a bit of work. Clayton had superlative table manners from day one.

Here’s another view of the bench. Pretty cool, huh? I have to admit that I kind of misled you, the piece of tree that Phillip was chainsawing off actually went into bench #1. This is bench #2. Same tree, but a different slice. Don’t worry, I’ll show you bench #1. Maybe tomorrow.
