Mud. I thought the puppies would destroy the lawn in a month; it took five days. Ay-yi-yi, mud. The unexpected (though welcome) rain pushed me to make a decision, and I did: plastic grass.
Hurry! The puppies are waiting!
Plastic grass may be an abomination of sorts, but I just couldn't take the mess any longer. The Abomination won't be there forever--the puppies will grow up and we'll be walking so often they won't need that spot much. Eventually, there will be real plants there again. Abomination it may be, but for now, a mud-free abomination.
The puppies thought it was a great place to play. Oh my, how fierce we are!
I'm 18 pounds of rough and tough!
No mud, no mud, no mud.
