    Nobody knows the trouble I've seen, nobody knows my sorrow. . . .

    This is my 4 year old Malinios Shepherd, Cooper. We had to put up a gate to give the cats a safe haven from him but when we adopted our Pom, we had to get a gate with a pass through. Cooper has always laid in front of the gate and now that there is a door on it, he always lays with his head through it! (Excuse the fur piles in the corner; with 2 shepherds, a pom and 4 cats we have to vacuum once, sometimes twice a day and just hadn't gotten to it yet!)

    Oh, boy I need one of those for my old kitty! I put up a wire gate, but Lyla jumped right over! Need to cut a cat door in the regular door! Cute picture!

    Before we got the gate with the pass through, we had a shorter one and Cooper could jump over it too. We opted for the taller one when we were looking for the gate with the pass through. Now, I'm not saying he doesn't jump up on it when we come in the front door, he has managed to push it almost completely over!

    ​He looks sooo lonely and forlorn. Poor baby. It's a great solution for a multi pet family.

    He doesn't look like a happy camper.. I'm sure he gets attention, but he looks like he is feeling sorry for himself.. I can't imagine what he would do with the cats.. My guy discovered how much fun it is to chase squirrels. He, and my niece (a doodle).. are having so much fun, but don't have a clue where the squirrels go.. They stand and look at the tree, as if to say where are you..

    He looks like he is coming up with a plan to get over or around that gate somehow. He doesn't look too pitiful to me. He looks like he is in a think tank mood!

    Bless his heart! He looks sooo sad. We just had to have our 19 yo kitty put to sleep. It seems so strange not to have the baby gate up anymore. She had her own room (LOL) and we had the gate up to keep the dogs out. They look in the door for her, but won't go in.

    He is such a love. He promises to not chase the kitties...too much. Just like my German Shepherd who only chases them under my bed at 3 am in the morning.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    We have one of our four kitties, Lily Pie (my avatar), who will interact with Cooper. She is always wet! He loves to herd her (as is his nature) and she will roll over and let him nibble on her belly! If she is on the arm of the couch and he walks by, she will reach a paw out and swat at him, enticing him to play. The other three stay behind the gate but often come out just to see what is going on in the rest of the house.

    Awe, they can look so pitiful! I hate that commercial where all the animals look so pitiful, and they're playing this sad music, asking for donations. I have to leave the room or I'll start crying!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    LOLx4. I have baby gates to use when the Grand-Shepherds, Sybil and Argus come to visit. They understand gates so the child sized are enough. To solve the pass-thru problem for my little pack, I simply raised the gate position in the doorway enough to allow them--but not the GSDs--to go underneath. Of course, this isn't an aggression situation, it's more to let my DH to relax without six dogs frolicking under his feet.
