Potate, or Tate for short, is a dog with a big heart, who undoubtedly loves her humans, Hailee Graham, and her husband, for a reason. Before being adopted by the couple, Tate lived on the streets as a homeless dog and now she has it all. Tate first found his family, then he found his soul mate.
Around the same time Hailee and her husband brought Tate home, their next-door neighbor also brought a dog named Vernon, who was around the same age as Tate.
Despite the high fence separating their yards, it didn’t take long for Tate and Vernon to notice each other’s presence, just out of reach, and sure enough, they completely connected.
They build a gate in the fence so their dogs can be together
So the two friendly dogs began to work in earnest to get closer to each other in any way they could. They dug and dug, each on their side of the fence to gain access to the other.
Hailee told The Dodo:
I go out and I see them digging a tunnel between them. We couldn’t stop them. We couldn’t separate them. They would keep digging holes for each other.
At first, Hailee thought about trying to set up a regular play date so Tate and Vernon could spend some fun time together with no fences in their way. But then he had a brilliant idea to completely overcome this obstacle.
I thought, ‘Why don’t I just put a gate in the fence, so they can play every time, and their humans don’t have to get involved?’
So that’s exactly what they did. And with the help of Hailee’s dad, the family built a dog gate in their backyard fence, allowing Vernon and Tate to get together whenever they want.
Of course, Tate couldn’t wait.
Since then, things have never been better for Tate and Vernon, all thanks to their new door.
They love being together! I don’t know if they’re really in love, but I like to think so.
Hailee admits her dog safety fence idea might not work for everyone, but she’s optimistic other like-minded families might be inspired to make their backyards open and loving spaces. .
I hope this will encourage people to be friendlier with their neighbors and foster a sense of community. It has worked well for us so far.
