On the first day of spring, neighbors and their fur babies continued planting pee-friendly plants on the patches of dirt as part of the My Pup’s Patch beautification project. Dog companions Frisko, Toby, Trixie, PinPin & Zeak supervised their human guardians as they focused on the front of two buildings on Hacienda Place this past Sunday, March 21, 20201, located at 1147 and 1155.

Each of the three dirt areas received 3-4 different pants. The plants this weekend included: Mexican Heather, Kangaroo plants, Rosemary, Milk Weed.

The goal is to make the street beautiful, not just for puppies, but also for human residents in the neighborhood.

Participants prepped the ground for planting using shovels to break up the old dirt, then making a space for the plants before adding new soil and finally water to welcome the plants to their new home.

To show everyone his approval, Zeak christened the ground with an inaugural pooping right after the dirt was loosened, just before one of the plants were placed.

Each My Pup Patch will have a wooden plaque which will showcase the name of the puppy  designated for that patch. Bodhi’s Patch was the first patch which was completed last weekend. This weekend saw the completion of Toby’s Patch, Trixie’s Patch, Zeak’s Patch and Frisko’s Patch.

The pups of Hacienda Place not only supervised but some also lent a paw to the event. Frisco chose the Spanish Lavender plant for his patch when he was out shopping with his guardian Dawn Robinson. He looked on as the plant was being planted and he seemed very pleased with his choice.

PinPin was by his guardian’s side, Patrick Ryan Blood. As Patrick worked the shovel to loosen up the dirt, PinPin’s supervision was key to the completion of this first important job.

Bodhi looked on as his guardian John Keitel celebrated his birthday at the event with doughnuts this past Sunday. Yes, only the humans ate the pasty treats.

This is a group of amazing West Hollywood residents who have taken it upon themselves to make their street beautiful. The residents pay for the plants, dirt and tools themselves. They also give their time to work the earth and make My Pup’s Patch a spot that everyone can enjoy.

This is so cool! GO Hacienda. Live nearby and always wondered why Hacienda never had stuff like we do a few blocks away. Great work!
