People also suggested a fence. This would be too complicated and very expensive because our yard is too big and hilly. We could consider putting a dog run in but it would not be attached to the house. We will keep this in mind. In summer we do give her tie out time while we are out, so she gets a little bit of a wander

Hailey is loving these second alone walks. She is a much better walker alone. (In an ideal world I would walk them all separately, but I do not have 1.5 hours in the morning just to walk!) On Thursday, she was so excited that two times she turned to me and did her jump of joy. Last night I could take her for a walk on a different route with the potential of passing lots of dogs (a route I can't handle when I have the two or three of them because I can't keep control if we see other dogs). Being alone is opening her world.
Now I am sure you are all wondering, what about poor Phod. Well, poor Phod can generally be off leash in our yard and all he wants to do is play fetch so he gets lots and lots of running up and down the hill after his frisbee or ball. He is not in need of this walk.
Also, thank you all for your concern about my cut. People were concerned it was infected. The first picture I took was taken immediately after it happened. Was my first thought, I need to do first aid? No! I am a true blogger and my first thought was need a picture of that for the blog. Once I had the picture I cleaned it out very well. It was only painful for about 24 hours and seems to be healing nicely.
