Another thing we are working on is something to give the dogs relief from this heat wave we are having!
We have several large plastic containers that were donated to us recently that we have used as water troughs for the dogs. The containers are a hit with the dogs and they have been getting a lot of use!
Since some of the dogs are very large and it is very hot, so we decided that it would be a good idea for them to have a pond.
We posted for donations for a hot tub and quickly received a response. This is the new hot tub that is in one of the pens. We had a lot of fun taking down the chain link panels to get this huge thing in the first dog pen!
(Look closely in the back ground and you can see a dog sitting in a water trough.) Now we were very excited about this idea but we have discovered that it comes with some problems. (Besides just getting it in the pen!) The hot tub has wholes in the bottom of it that need to be filled. They are small holds so they would block quickly and not allow for water to drain. We will need to fill these wholes and then we need to install a large drain at the bottom of the hot tub. The dogs get the water very muddy so we are sure it will need to be drained from time to time. We are also digging a whole for the hot tub so it does not sit so high and the dogs can get in easier. If you are a plumber and can help with the drainage of this hot tub or if you just want to help us dig the whole, Please come on over! Your help is very needed! Thank you!
