OK, as long as you're on this subject of dogs and we have several dog lovers
and many who know what dogs need....
I've been puzzled for years now about a house I pass on the way to work.
It's a farm house built close to the road.  The house is positioned on the
edge of an incline such that the sude yard is downhill and the house/yard
area which is about 60 ft by 40 ft is surrounded by chain link fence.  There
is NO grass, everything is covered in rocks about the size of a childs fist
and larger and I just saw them spreading a new layer of rock with a bobcat.
These people have 2 or 3 medium size dogs - the kind that look big because
of all the fur and have a curly tail (is that a spitz?)  They lay outside on
the porch or sidewalk much of the day.  OK - here's the question:  Isn't all
that rock hard on their feet? uncomfortable to walk on or lay on?  How do
you clean up poop on rock?  Why do you think they do this?
