Welcoming the nicer weather and the occasional sunny days that will come with it, DH and I invested in a doggie pool for a whopping $10 at Rite Aid. The dogs don't really get the concept of the pool and think it's the largest water bowl they've ever seen. At least they won't get dehydrated this summer!
I also got a sprinkler and have been watering the lawn every night (I pretty sure you are suppose to water in the morning but DH just aren't up early enough). I'm hoping the water will help the grass grow so that we will have a nice green lawn when the family comes out in Nov. Otherwise it will be welcome to the dust bowl!
(And check out the awesome fence in the background, DH did a great job!)
