Oh, I didn't have an umbrella. I needed to do the farm chores and get the horses fed. My two dogs, Amore and Max, always accompany me on the farm trek. I had just finished cleaning my kitchen floor, and if you know anything about farm dogs, they like to roll. IN EVERYTHING. Manure is a favorite, and laying down into a fresh water tub that has been turned over is a favorite. Soaked, dirty, manure, sand, "clinging" dogs. So, tonight, here I was. I had two doggies that had their dinner and were ready to "roll." They were ready for their evening adventure on the farm with "Mom." Did I mention that their "dog yard" now serves no purpose. They will not do their "business" unless running on the pasture. So, the perplexing. I didn't have an umbrella and it was a down soaking pour of a rain. I grabbed my bag of trash bags and made myself a nice rain coat. Then, I thought of the dogs. Wouldn't it be cool IF I could make a coat for them? Voila! Small incision cut in the bottom of a trash bag for their head.
Hay bale twine to keep in tact. It worked!
So, how many things can hay twine be used for? This is probably, number 1,002! :) Here is a photograph of my Cape Crusader dogs!
The only problem was, they didn't do their business.....
