The dogs have very distinct rules about the back yard. It is, after all, their territory. No one really knows the rules except the dogs, but I’ve been able to figure some of them out.
1-Golfers are allowed on the golf course.
2-The cart girl in her work cart is allowed on the golf course.
3- Mowers are not allowed on the golf course.
4-You are not allowed to walk on the golf course at any time if you are not a golfer (I don’t know how they can tell the difference, but they can.)
5-You are not allowed to walk on the other side of the street, either. You might get too close to the golf course.
6-If you are an animal other than a dog (heron, squirrel, turtle, snake) you are not allowed in the backyard. Or on the golf course.
7-Floating in the pool, allowed. Swimming in the pool, not allowed. (It’s dangerous)
8-Swimming in the neighbor’s pool, not allowed either. (Dangerous for the neighbors, too)
I love my dogs, but their rules are weird.
