Children of All Species – Thankful Thursday

Today I’m grateful for the creation of child gates. I have used them for my nieces and nephews and for my nephew’s cat’s kittens and now I’m using several for that same nephew’s dog’s puppies.

They are truly a wondrous creation and I, for one, am highly grateful to whoever not only created them, but made them affordable. Because we only owned one last week and have to buy at least another this weekend in order to expand the pen as the pups grow larger. (The store was all out of the kits that made indoor pens for puppies and it’s too soon to have them outside. It snowed a lot yesterday and snowed some more today. Also, there was hale and I don’t want them hit by hale when they’re this small. It would be dangerous. And they can climb out of the kiddie pool we originally had them in.)

(Also, I’m grateful for tarps to protect my carpet and twine to hold the corners together.)

    • In fairness, the kittens were a 2 years ago and were all rehomed to safe places. His puppy, Helena, was actually gotten to be a companion for our farm dog, Vincent. He’d had a very rough year and with the move, he was having terrible anxiety problems. (Those seem to run with everyone in my family, it seems.) My eldest nephew decided that he would train Vincent’s companion to be his companion as well since Vincent isn’t really a cuddler, but my nephew is.
