Same Path

While Robert Frost might take the road less traveled, we are big believers in walking the same path everyday inside Sibe Quentin. And that has made all of the difference.

same path

At least that annoying grass does not tickle our paws.

    Hahaha… We love this! As small as my yard is… each of the Mom’s dogs have carved their mark into it. We spend a lot of time back there, and she reflects on each of those ruts!

    Fanks for sharing yeurs!

    Ayla sez: Me’n Ice have trails like that in our back yard, too. One is a diagonal path, from the corner by the clothesline pole over to the back deck, the other is rectangular, right around the outside edge of the lawn.

    I call the paths around the back yard and from the big tree in the back straight diagonally across the lawn to the back porch ‘the goat paths.’ So my yard has two giant triangles of (now brown, sigh) grass with borders around them. LOL!!
