Beautiful Weather

It’s been unseasonably warm in Missouri this weekend, which means we have spent as much time outside as we can. The pups have absolutely loved it, which you can see from the photos below.

Our yard, on the other hand… it’s become a dust bowl from their constant romping and playing. Any ideas on how to get our grass to grow back? Or what kind of grass seed we can plant that will withstand these two tornadoes?

    Ha, mostly I think dogs and grass are incompatible especially after you factor in water requirements and locale. 😇

        Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Check with a garden supply place and ask for a high traffic grass. They might be able to steer you to something that will work in Missouri.

    Grass is overrated. Fun is more important! Mud on the other hand might be an issue when it rains…. #ihatebaths

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, you’re not alone – they hate baths, too! And mud definitely = bathtime.

    Boy are they having fun! I think pups get as tired of winter as we do. We were in Missouri this weekend visiting family, the weather was great! I would be interested in any ideas you get about your yard as our yard looks the same. Our girls bring the fine dirt/dust with them when they come in the house which of course adds to the housecleaning…

      EXACTLY! Aside from the aesthetics of a brown yard, I dislike greatly the dust/mud they track in with them.

      Glad to have you in our neck of the woods!

    Love to see the dogs play. If you ask a plant nursery, be sure to add in the “urine” factor. In the meantime, you can spread straw to try to keep the dust and mud out of the house. Or better yet, seed the yard and cover it with straw. I have done that in the past. (Isn’t Missouri’s nickname the Dust Bowl?)

      Ohhh… good point! I think it’s too late now to seed, but maybe next year we can do that if our grass doesn’t rebound.

      No, we’re the Show-Me State…

        Oh yes, I remember that now. Maybe you can find a sale on sod! 🙂
