Ah – a beautiful spring day and everyone’s mind turns to landscaping time. Ok, mine doesn’t. I purposely live without a lawn mower and have no plans to ever cut grass again in my life. Most of the area is totally natural. The dog lot itself is covered regularly in soft pine needles (notice none is there now) and I make no attempt to grow any plant life there. The dogs believe in constant excavation. Sibe owners will not see anything unusual here, but thought those of you who do not have Siberians might like to see what they do.
