Wife likes gardening around house. Husband often winds up doing gardening. During vacation, Husband removed large patch of pachysandra near Dog’s run in back yard, leaving large expanse of loose dirt. Dog is now eating loose dirt in back yard. Husband is puzzled, then comes up with solution. Deer ate deer resistant plants in front yard all winter, so fencing will be required in fall. Husband buys posts and mesh fencing for deer. Husband has never put in fencing, and decides to put up a short run of fencing in back yard to stop Dog from eating dirt, and test installation process at same time. Husband gets Wife off of couch to help hold posts during installation. Dog watches from behind sliding glass door. Wife goes back in house for something and spies Dog on couch! Dog stares at Wife like nothing is wrong! Wife yells at Dog. Dog is intimidated. Wife comes back outside and tells Husband. Dog is never, ever, allowed on couch, and Dog knows it! Wife is flabbergasted by Dog’s passé response.

Time goes by, Husband sits down to write Blog. Question suddenly pops into Husband’s mind- was Dog was getting even for putting fence in and reducing her run?
