As my pals know, daddy fenced in the area between the garage/workshop and our house thus making a courtyard for Coco and I to do our business in where we will be safe from critters that would like to make us the "guest of honor" at their dinner table. The only problem is that the courtyard is all dirt that turns to mud when it rains and snow melts. The humans just didn't have enough time to make a nice yard out there for us this year before the snows arrived.
Coco doesn't like stepping in the mud, but heck, I kind of like how it squishes between my toes so I have no issues real issues with it. However, momma doesn't like having to wash our feetsies every time we come back inside so daddy took a huge plastic tarp and anchored it outside our French door.
Coco took to the tarp right away but the one downside is that when either one of us piddle on the tarp, there is no place for the piddle to go so we now end up walking in our piddle so we still have to have our feetsies washed - BOL, BOL.
Sounds like a problem, puffy!!
Mom puts wood shavings in our mud. In less than a year they become part of the soil, and, meanwhile they suck up all the water out of the mud. She an still plant stuff in them and it grows good.
Mommy says she would take the mud over the piddle...so would I. Mom put a board down in the muddy spot here.
Well is it a blue tarp or a green tarp? It should be astro turf green if you expect to fool a dog. Raised, heated and with a clean up service if you ask me.
Sounds like you're gonna be in for some more feet washings!
Get used to the pawies washin'...Just comes with rain,snow and icy stuff. I get my paws washed more in the fall and spring than anytime of the year.
Had 2 nights here this past week it was -15 and one night
was -17. South wind this morning and woke up to 15 above zero! Yippy! I really haven't been out much this past week. Too cold!
Gma and I did alot of baking. Kept house toasty and me toasty too.....
Maybe you need the astro-turf in your courtyard????Is it even
a possibility??????? Just thinkin'...
Hugs to you both and Momma too,mazy
