….A New Tunnel!!
Our recent snow finally put our poor tunnel over the edge! It already had rips and tears in it, and the grommets and strings that we could use to anchor it down had long ago been ripped off. They’ve had so much fun with the tunnel this year, I just left it outside all the time. But that was not the best thing for it either.
This dog Mom is on the hunt for a new and better tunnel. I want something a little heavier duty; the grommets on this to attach it to the ground did not last long at all. I later used the strings on it to tie it to the fence, but that only lasted so long too. I am hoping to find one that is a little more rugged and will hold up longer; but I’m hoping not to spend a fortune either. If I can get a good one, I’d even be willing to be less lazy and at least put it away when it rains! Then again, I wonder if I should just get a cheap one and accept the fact that it may only last one season?
The tunnel was so much fun for them – it was a place to run through with the ball (the video I shared in our post Friday FunTime Video gives a great demonstration), to hide in when playing keep away with the ball, or just to run through for fun!
Our snow has now mostly melted, so the tunnel is still out there for use until the next snow, such as it is. It’s in rough shape, but still usable. Once we get a new one we’ll be able to use it in the house some for the winter; we have a pretty long hallway that we can set it up in on the days we’re stuck inside.
Do your dogs have a tunnel, and if so are you happy with it? Do you have a recommendation of one to get?
**I’m so sorry if you tried to visit us yesterday, and couldn’t get on. I had an issue with my server, and I couldn’t work on getting it fixed until I got home from work, then it took some time for them to fix it. Don’t miss our post from yesterday, there was some good news about Cricket in there!**
