Sometimes we take for granted what we have. I know our dog, Romeo, in the End of the Rainbow Valley probably does. He not only has our 44 acres of woods as his playground but also the adjoining properties that he may on occasion wander on. We've asked him many a time where he's been and his lips are sealed.
When you are a city dog you have to really leave home to go run around in a doggie park. In fact with a half an hour to kill yesterday in between an airport run and school pickup, my brother, his dachshund Fritz and I made a visit to the new doggie park by the U of Arkansas Law School. There, a piece of land is divided into 2 fenced in areas, one larger than the other. There was no doubt we needed the smaller area for Fritz to stretch his legs.
It's a good thing it wasn't distinguished by the size of the owners.
Each area is equipped with decorated fire hydrants and then water sources with bowls to replenish that lost liquid. There is a cement pad surrounded by 'pea' gravel and the green area.
You know how they say you can't ever escape home. Look at this very important piece of equipment included in the doggie park. Do you know what it is? Hint: It is also found on most golf courses.
It's called the scrusher.
Do you know what it is for?
It's for cleaning off unwanted 'debris' from your shoes.
And guess where it is made?
Chaseburg, Wisconsin no less. You can't ever leave home very far behind... LOL
