New dog door flap on the way

dog door flap

Now that spring is here, the weather is turning warm enough to enjoy our screened back porch.

We’re on the second dog door flap and it’s showing its age. You can see there is a tear about two inches long on the upper left side and it will only get worse with the passage of time.

So I ordered a new flap this morning to assure that our porch time remains mosquito free this spring, summer and fall.

We swept up a winter’s worth of twigs, leaves, dog toys, furballs and poop yesterday afternoon, bagged it and put it into the trash. At the same time, I used a snow shovel to scoop up the rotting leaves that were clustered around the back steps and dumped them into some of the holes Dora dug in the yard.

The porch still needs to be pressure washed, but that will have to wait until a little warmer weather arrives.

In the meantime, my John Deere LA125 lawn tractor is back from its spring tune-up at Greenway Equipment and all I need is another couple of dry days before I mow for the first time this season.
