Today I happened to de-dog-poo the back yard and noticed something odd.
This time of year, here in Central California, the weather is rainy and the native bunch grasses are green and tall. My backyard is a sandy, hot wasteland most of the year but right now parts of it are covered in tall, green grass. We have to mow soon to wipe out the foxtail grass’s evil seeds that corkscrew their way into our socks and the dogs’ ears and nose.
Today, upon cruising the yard for poo, I noticed some large strangely flatted spots. Our dogs don’t spend much time outdoors back there and, if they lie down, they lie on the porch. They would not be responsible for this.
