Mud, mud, mud, and mulch…

It’s that time if year, when the mud us ridiculous, the dogs track it in, and it gets everywhere. My solution is mulch. It’s not perfect, but it is cheap and relatively easy. Here are some before and after pics of the small area I had fenced in for See See.

Before….

After…

See See on her new mulch. She is 11 months old today, and on day 21 of her first heat cycle. Another week and she will get a bath and then play with her brothers.

Here’s the product I used. It is free of dyes. I got it at Home Depot. I think it was between 3 and 4 bucks a bag. I used 4 bags in this area. It’s not beautiful, but it’s better than mud. And much easier to clean up with a broom. I will probably need to put some more mulch down soon. I should have gotten more.

I hope this helps people who are struggling with muddy dogs tracking mud into their house.

Also, shout out to Home Depot, where the staff are friendly and helpful, and my dogs are welcome!
