Last winter there was a stack of wood on the porch for the wood stove in the house, the mechanic made sure there was always a bucket of kindling to use, well the dogs decided that the kindling was best for taking and playing with in the yard.
So this year I thought it would be nice to have something on the porch to keep the dogs out of the kindling, the new dog will even take the larger pieces to the yard. These bird dogs haven't found a stick yet that isn't good for playing with.
So here is the solution a big wood box, which happens to have also been the mechanics toy box as a little boy. What a good way to repurpose. Oh and a nice big bucket of bird seed for the birds this winter.
