We added a dog door and fencing to the back as well so the pups would sort of have an area they could go outside to without being chaperoned. On the other side of the deck, not visible in this photo, will be (the last step in the transformation) a circlish spot of grass with more montana rainbow rock and stepping stones around it. There’s another fence with gate there as well, at that end of the house. Do we love our dogs or what? This required so much rock hauling, caused so many cuts and bruised hands, and smashed a lot of fingers. I can’t even tell you. I think it’s worth it though. Didn’t turn out too bad.
