Turf for canines

I happen to buying a house that currently has no lawn in the backyard…just dirt. Given water restrictions where I live we might not put in grass at all, just other low-water-use landscaping (rocks, wood chips, other plants, etc.)

That was my translation.



I had to look up float-a-poo. It’s available on Amazon.

The idea is you collect the poop in the bag, then fill the bag with helium from a cannister, then let the poop bag float upward to the sky like a balloon, never to be seen (by you) again.

He totally gets me. :heart: :dog:
