Two key pieces of information explain this picture.
1) The dog area does not have any grass in it. None. To be clear, I do not have any problem with grass. Would be glad to seed the area. But The Herd likes the various excavation projects and no plant stands a chance of surviving inside the dog area. So, I spread straw and they can dig as much as they want to. Seems like a fair compromise to all of us.
2) Cheoah likes water. No, Cheoah LOVES water. I mean really, really loves water and loves to be wet. In case you need a reminder of exactly how much she loves water, check out this post of Cheoah playing in the Nantahala River or, even better, this one of her playing in the water bucket. Remember, Cheoah is Cherokee for Otter, and no dog has a more appropriate name.
