C & Sri, Tubes seem to need to be shared. Otherwise they get lonely.

 

Denise, that yellow thing in the sky - we were a bit concerned but then we remembered what it was.

 

  ...

 

Sherab,  the yellow thing is really cool  ....  it rises in the East, turns the sky blue, sometimes has halos or rainbows around it.  It can be orange, sometimes red, then it goes to sleep in the West to come back again in the East!  :rolleyes:

 

Tubes - glad to hear that the heavy duty one withstood Texas sun.

I have a cheap fabric one that's in a box right now, thought it would be a good starter - and we thought Roger (the Dash-terrier mix) would like it but he's not ready for it yet.

 

I'm really hoping he and the AI puppy bond (whenever puppy becomes physically present - LOL!)  ^_^

 

Is some one suggesting I should have gotten on the waiting list for two puppies??????? :huh:

Took both dogs together on a week end trip. They did great. Good in the new truck (made sure to decorate with shedding and sand), good in the hotel and good at the bike event.

Miz M & Star, Zommies are the best. Just the other day Scott leaned against the gate and mused that even if Shiva was in his prime there would be a connection missing (even with epic GSD-AID zoomies) that the two AIDs have. It's almost like.... an old married couple. Wish I'd gotten the loop through blue tunnel then yellow and back around.


Quite familiar with this "connection" that AIDs have. You should see when Jas and K'ne get together with Opal or Meadow.
...Both of which will be at The Gathering btw! woohoo!!

Here in Michigan fireworks were made legal for anyone a few years ago. This year people have gone wild. No idea why. Our house is situated near enough to the town's launch site that we are assured professional grade audio on the 4th, however neighbors in all directions have put on private shows from dusk to midnight that sound wise rival the town show.

 

Our house on the fourth eve of fire works..."Boom..pop,pop, pop.... BOOOM!" on continuous loop until they run out...

Waki: Bark!BarkBark! Bark! "Hey were being invaded! MOM, DAD, HEY"

Us: Come here

Waki - trot trot trot pop, sit and look at us with great intensity

Us: it's ok. Lay down. Bed time.

Waki - lays down between us, makes whale eye. (cover with his baby blanky) oh ok now I'm invisible.

Cake: ZZZZzzzzZZZ ping (Waki detection system goes off) slither slither, put head on Waki's bottom ZZZZzzzzzZZZZZ

 

Shiva: ZZZZZ until one minute before the end and then "BARK BARK BARK" Hey I'm trying to sleep here. Knock it OFFF!"

Many years ago (11?) Ruffwear made a tent for use as a portable crate. Well unless your dog is very submissive and obedient it really doesn't work as a crate but it IS a MOST BeLOVEd living space. Shivathebeniferous.jpg

 

Shiva the Beniferous would like you to know that he shares his thrown with His subjects....

We love these tent pictures. Meadow's pack consists of two legged members. We end up with a two person tent in our living room filled with five kids and a dog each winter. Funny how they always have to be together.

How fun! Ayita would shred it in a heartbeat. Anything not nailed down and light enough for her to carry becomes a sparring partner, complete with sound effects and nibbles. Hoping this behavior modifies as she matures. I guess the other option is to get her a puppy  :D...

LOL good one Mz. M!

 

Carolyn It took 2 years and a Cake to get Waki to stop eating anything with a zipper on it. A puppy is a great option.

The new tubes have arrived. Tip - We went with the 6 inch spacing vs 4 inch because that's what we had that lasted 10 years plus outside with no care. 4 inch spacing sounds obnoxious and the extra hoops add cost due to the labor involved. We purchased from http://www.dogtunnel...5&product_id=61 because we loved the colors and I believe these are the folks we originally purchased from.tubefirstrun.jpg

 

PS they offer a new 19 oz vs 16 oz with embossed surface - since 16 oz lasted 10 years with extreme abuse I didn't think the extra weight was worth it. These tunnels are also heavy to lug so why add more weight.. I don't think it will give me more life - Vinyl will age and I don't think more thickness will buy me anything.

Were these the tubes you had in the Southern sun?

 

Wondering if the thicker or the coated would offer better UV protection for southern Florida.

Vinyl tarps and most grill covers are ruined within a year.

 

I don't want to spend extra money when not needed, and also don't want to buy something that won't last a few years.

I would like to have a tube in the yard someday.

Yes we had these in Texas year round for about 5 years before moving north so they have experienced 100+ degrees, high humidity and intense sun and last winter endured -18 F. The yellow one is still in ok shape. The teal one is starting to dis-integrate. I just lugged a 15 ft one to a spot under the apples. It wasn't too bad to carry. Would say it weighs less than Waki so under 40 lbs. I bet a 10 ft with 6 inch spacing wouldn't be too bad to set up and take down vs leaving out- they fold up reasonably small so could take up a spot in the garage possibly. You can email company with questions. I don't see weights but 10 and 6 should be the least heavy to carry.
