I guess it is Disneyland for them...people food, new furniture to sit on, more people to snuggle with, and a different yard to run around.
Tiny likes my parents' house, but it isn't her Disneyland. Her Disneyland is Aimee's parents' house. Their backyard is more her speed...it's currently a fabulous doggy play-land. They are in the process of installing a new above-ground pool which will be partially sunk, so their backyard is loaded with all types of amazing, fun things if you're a dog. For example, it currently has:
- Several different types of terrain: a deck, grass, a big sandy hole, and stairs
- A "club house": The underside of the steps that lead up to the pool are not accessible when there is a pool, but when there isn't, it becomes an incredible, sandy club house.
- Piles of sand that are so much fun to dig-in and often hold little buried treasures
- The sandy hole does double duty as a racetrack
|The sweet, sweet (and sandy) clubhouse!|
|A pile of sand AND a stick? Doggie heaven.|

Yeah, this place is Tiny's Disneyland. She plays until she can't play anymore, then she gets hosed off, and by the time she makes it to the car, she is so tired that all she can do is curl up on the back seat and sleep. And, since a tired puppy is a well behaved puppy, it's no wonder Aimee's parents think she is so sweet and snugly.
More than once Aimee has gotten a call from her mom where she asks, "Is Tiny coming to Tinyland today?" Yes, she now refers to it as Tinyland. Afterall, it is Tiny's own magical world of fun.
