It doesn't matter how many Kuranda dog cots we have in the yards -- if there's a good size hole in the ground, the dogs prefer it. And it doesn't matter what their disability is ... they'd rather curl up in a hole. This is blind and deaf Spinner, who spends a lot of time these days in this deep hole right outside the front door. The cots are in the shade under the roof overhang, so it's not a question of one spot being cooler than the other -- except the dirt itself can be cooler, or feel cooler, on a hot day. I took the photo above a few days ago, but this morning she was back in the hole, this time curled up tight in a ball and fitting entirely inside the hole!
So, while we have more than enough Kuranda cots, the one thing we don't seem to have enough of are holes in the ground. Which, judging from what's going in some of the yards around the house, is a situation the dogs seem to be resolving for themselves just fine.
