The Clean Up, which Cathy Todhunter organized, had been scheduled a week earlier, but recent rain storms flooded the Shelter. This day was perfect, warm but not hot and low humidity. Jim went over about noon; my daughter, Dorsche, who was visiting from Philadelphia, and I arrived at 1:30 after her farewell massage. What I had seen a month before was an area 30 by 60 feet of weeds, stumps and rocks around which the cinder block kennels had been built. I found about 30 dog lovers pulling weeds, cutting roots and tree limbs with machetes, prying and digging out rocks, and raking the ground to create a reletively flat surface for the dogs to run. The change was amazing. As we left another fenced in area half as large was being tackled. Andy and Jen plan to cover both their front yard and the dog run with white gravel that will discourage flea and tick colonies.
