    Wink So freaking excited

    We don't have a fenced in yard so in the meantime, we're installing a 50ft zip line for Remi. I am so unbelievably excited!!! As soon as the rain stops, we're installing this bad boy.

    There is no way I'm leaving Remi out unattended for more than 3 minutes, but when we're outside together, currently I tie him to a tree or one of my lattice posts and he gets tangled up like 4x an hour. I am just so excited to give him an amazing, tangle-free sniffing and roaming experience while I'm gardening or having a martini on the patio.

    We're going to stick it between 2 huge trees, all shade for him.

    Anyone else have one - what do you think?

    YIPPEE.

    We are lucky enough to have a fence. But I hope this goes as well as you hope.

    What a great idea, Jane! We have a very small fenced area, but I'd love to let Mabel explore more. We do OK with her off least until someone walks by. Fortunately she LOVES other people, but dogs not so much.

    We just bought our home about a hear ago, about a quarter of an acre on a corner lot. It would be thousands to put in a fence, but we have definitely considered perhaps a smaller area so he can run around, and giving us a little privacy couldn't hurt.

    at first I was like, what's a zip line? I'm thinking those things where people get strapped in and sail above the trees to the other end of the line. I figured you weren't talking about that....LOL
    Once I read more I figured out what you were talking about. That sounds awesome! I'm sure he will totally enjoy the freedom that comes along with that. I know how having the security of a fenced in yard feels, so this is a very close 2nd to that.
    Please post pics of him sailing above the trees, oh, I mean, of him dancing in the yard from excitement. :-)

    I have a small feeling I am probably using the wrong terminology. Here is it: http://www.amazon.com/Boss-Pet-Prest..._petsupplies_2

    @Blueberrys Mom - It basically works similar to zipline. You have one horizontal wire that runs across 2 trees or something, and then another wire leash that clips to the dog vertically that "ziplines" over the horizontal wire.

    My dad used to have one of those for his jack russell. It worked great! He could zip back and forth from the porch to a big tree and get his energy out. I think that's a great idea!
