La Toilette Pt. Duex

The first hole I dug was over the cellar-hit cement at about 10 inches. I moved over and began digging again. Cody helped with much enthusiasm, he loves to dig. Oliver kept running off with the Doggie Dooley box.

This is a more complicated task than I realized. After digging a test hole, we had to flood it and see if it drained with 24 hours-so we are awaiting our test results. In the meantime I had to cover the hole with a grate because Lily fell in immediately-she is not wise in the ways of walking on water. Oliver and Cody displayed far too much interest in the mud hole as well.

So, we do not as yet have a cadillac doggy septic tank, just a muddy hole in the yard. But soon, oh yes, soon.......

I do like reading through your doggy stories when I remember to visit.

I'd probably visit more if you carried around a digi-camera with you and snapped the mutts to add to your tales.

I'm a sucker for dog stories. But dog stories AND pictures, NOW YOU'RE TALKING!
