We have two rescues dogs -- a 7 yr old Yorkie who is 6 lbs. and a 10 yr Papillon who is blind. We live on a small lake with predatory birds (hawks, owls, eagles, etc.). The Papillon (Spirit) uses the doggie door freely to go in and out, but the Yorkie (Toby) has to be watched when outside so he doesn't become a snack. Toby is not that fond of outdoors so he goes out, quickly does his business and comes back in.
We live 10 mins. from Southern Pines, Pinehurst, and Carthage. This area has very neat shopping places, great strolling areas, historical buildings, golf, horses, and much more. It is just wonderful walking down Broad Street of Southern Pines or strolling around Pinehurst. We have wonderful restaurants, great farmers markets, and other summer events.
We live on a lake and have a kayak, fishing poles and of course, swimming. It’s peaceful to simply sit on the deck, relax and watch the different birds.
