Well that shouldn't have been a problem for you if you had the dogs with you. You could have killed time flushing and watching the dogs chase it down the pipe!
You should make a video of that!
I've been out at the farm 2 weekends in a row now and I hate to say it, but the dogs have all gotten bored with the whole poop pipe thing. I heard several flushes over the time I spent there. We're making a stone patio at the Thoughtful Spot, and it's in earshot of the pipe the whole time. The dogs stayed unimpressed throughout.
The kids that used to run down to the end with the dogs have all moved out too. I fear this story has passed into legend.
We'll see. Within the month, I'll have to move the corrugated pipe to another spot on the hill. In doing so, I'll have to drag it up out of the weeds. When it gets back on top of the weeds, it will make more noise. Perhaps that will spur them. However, I fear the worst.
