Need help attaching fence to metal siding

i am putting in a fence in my backyard and for the most part it has gone just fine except for one small section. There is an asphalt walkway about 4' wide right up next to the house so I can't get the last post into the ground. We are now into winter in Alaska so the ground is frozen with snow on its way and I need to get this fence attached to the house even if it is just temporary so that my dog has a place to go out. I'm in a rental house so I can't cause a lot of damage but I am allowed to make improvements.
I am using welded wire fencing and the house has metal siding.
Is there a way to either attach the welded wire directly to the siding or any suggestions on how to finish my fence?

Best not to attach to house.
Drill a hole in the pavement and put one of these in?

Some spiral in and some drive in.

For temp how about a 2x4 upright with a 2x4 bottom plate say 4' making a t then a 45 brace 2x4 on each side, could spike it with heavy long ardox spikes put in and an angle towards each other if needed into the pavement.
Maybe some way of doing that nicer and more permanent?

Second 2 Cents to offer= DO NOT attach to the house as that can cause moisture penetration & rot damage (seen it many, many times).

Could also go to local fence company & get pre-made 6' chain link fence panel with feet on the bottom of panel. Butt it up to the house, sand bags on the feet. Other side run long & attach to other fence.

If your renting then attaching to the siding or drilling into the pavement is not a great move.
