Wayeh Kennels Through the Years

2011 October Work Party

Denver & Cheyenne's owners Mary & Quintin organized a work party in October to clean up the driveway & remove the burn-pile, to block the last three kennels and walkway in front of the kennels, repair kennel panels, and fix the stairs on the south side of the house.  We got it all done, 15 people in 17 hours, 1200? block, 25? tons of gravel, and a lot of sweat equity!

Thank-you, Quintin & Mary McKissick, _____ 

 And thanks to Steve Muntz (Basa & Gracie's dad) for coming down from Chicago to help me with the final touches -- landscape timbers around the edge, drilled through, and rebar pounded through to secure the block in position.  And getting the roof/greenhouse mesh up over all 6 kennels...  Thanks Susan & David for bringing the last of the gravel up to the edges of the landscape timbers so there's no big step-off (for me to fall over).
