We named the dog, "Indiana."

Not long after Sam was born, we installed a temporary fence and gate across the middle of the house. We then put everything that could harm the baby (bookshelves, pets, glass objects, Barney the Dinosaur) on the other side, effectively sealing the baby off in her own big safe room. The gate has worked well, keeping the pets out of the living room, except for Macho the Cat who has figured out how to jump it. We're contemplating razor wire next.

This weekend I installed yet another fence, between the pet lockdown area and the hallway. We just steam cleaned the carpets in the back bedrooms, and the wife decided to seal the entire area off from the pets to prevent further contamination (alas, if we could only do that with Rush Limbaugh). Before, the smell of animal urine used to compete with all the other smells emanating from the carpet. Now, the other smells are gone and the cat piss has a clear path to your nose.

The thing we always liked about our house is the wide-open floor plan. Now, our home is a series of passageways and gates. If you want to walk from the kitchen to my office you need a native guide and a torch.

We haven't had any problems with Rush, but if Sean Hannity pisses in the family room one more time...
