Blood, Sweat and Turds

A couple of months were spent getting ready for today. Hours of labor, toiling in the sun. Hard earned dollars spent on hardscape, drainage and irrigation. Blood spilled when I failed to move my thumb while chiseling block.

The tilled soil raked and compressed. Each imperfection removed to ensure a smooth lawn. Each piece of sod carefully laid, some cut to fit.

Each piece cut and carefully placed, watered in the proper amount. The new lawn rolled, compressing the sod onto the prepared soil. Instant gratification, an instant lawn.

Thirty seconds.  That's how long it took Sydney

To walk over and leave a steamer on my freshly laid lawn. I know it's not any big deal, it's what dogs do. But, damn dog, can't you wait just five minutes before dropping a deuce on the turf?

Do yourself a favor, don't click to enlarge.

I guess I should be grateful she didn't start digging it up. God knows what it will look like when I get home from work tomorrow.

Thanks for reading, 


  1. Quit whining, and be thankful you have a dachsund, and not a Great Dane. You'd be cleaning up a pile bigger than your actual dog. :)

  2. *SNORT*!!!!

    "File photo" and "don't click to enlarge" ahahah sorry I'm not awake yet and am slightly hung over so I am way too amused by those words...


  3. Ha ha, isn't that always the way?

  4. NYEMT - I guess when it comes to dog turds, size DOES matter.

    Jackie - When I downloaded the pic from my camera, I zoomed in on it to full magnification. I almost puked and won't be doing that again!

    Hydrant Girl - So it would seem.

    Thanks for the comments

  5. Only a guy would zoom in on a turd! lmao!!

    And Remi would put that turd to shame. And let em take this a step further....since he's been eating all the mangos that fall, it aint solid lately either. YUCK!!
