Fixing the Dog Yard

After a long summer of dogs playing in the dirt and gravel of the SP Kennel dog yard - the yard looks pretty poor. There are huge holes and craters that are a hazard to both dogs and humans. So, in order for us to avoid broken legs and sprained ankles while hooking up this season we needed to fix the yard.

Every year, we rent a small bulldozer and replace dirt and gravel. There is, of course, a lot of manual labor that goes along with this task.

We were shoveling and smoothing out the back of the yard when Mac, one of our yearlings, started playing with the dirt. We were able to catch some of this on video, so I hope that you enjoy.




The other dogs in the video are Hummer (sitting on his dog house), Newt (white dog standing face the camera) and Willie (white dog to the left running in and out of the screen.)

MAC is growing into a very nice dog, eh? Nice, compact feet under that boy. I'm looking forward to reading more about him as the season gets rolling.

Cutter's and Chica's boy sure is handsome! He looks great! Can't wait to watch him in the harness.
