i was having a rough morning with my son and Cassie. He kept opening the gate to wander into the house or whatever, and she would bolt every time. urgh. so after a while, i remembered that i had a tie out from a year ago. so in these photos, she's on a tie out. it actually ended up making it easier to take photos. i don't usually put her on the tie out, but i was needing a break from trying to keep luring her back into the yard every time Gideon let her out. ugh.
