Our Own Dog Park

As a multiple dog family, we’ve always had our own dog park in our yard. Now we even have the same decorations.

One of the advantages of being a multiple-dog family is we never have to get in the car to go to a dog park. We are, after all, our own dog park. One of the challenges is what to do with the, er, output. Hu-Dad commented he wished he could find the disposal stations just like the big parks… and then discovered you can buy them. So, yes, this now sits in our backyard. Unfortunately, our Hu-Dad has good ideas and bad jokes, so it only took a few seconds until he called it The Thundering Turd. Yeah, we know, that joke stinks.

    But, you still have to deal with a bigger bag of collective stinkies at some point. Have you ever looked into this https://doggiedooley.com/. I have it here with 2 Sibes and a Malamute and have had it working with 4 dogs. The ground here is sand so the type of ground you have might alter it’s effectiveness. Have never had to clean it out in many years of using it.

Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
