When you care about someone, you want to make their life special. It’s easy to put in the work when something is a labor of love. A labor of love was exactly what one Pennsylvania man did for his dogs when he built them a backyard playground complete with a pool.
Aaron Franks wanted to do something special for the 4 canines in his life. His dogs named Tessa, Bruno, Cooper and Mia are a big part of his world. A few years ago he decided to build them a playground in his backyard.
“I feed them, I water them and walk them every day. They get their exercise and stuff, but I guess at the end of the day I just felt like it wasn’t enough,” Franks explained. “I felt like this would be a good way to show my love for them. It makes me feel good that I could do that for them.”
Frank started small and just kept adding on to the playground as he had time. “I worked on it a little bit at a time, sometimes just a few boards a month. Every time I got a couple of extra bucks, I’d go out there and add to it,” Frank explained.
A Masterpiece! A Dog Playground With a Pool.
It wasn’t long at all before Frank had a masterpiece completed. The play area now has 3 areas and it even includes a built-in pool.
“They love it. My two older dogs lay around and hang out. They’ve got some new views now where they can see over the fence. For the two youngest, it’s like a romp room. They go down there jumping and playing around, swinging on the swings. It’s pretty cool,” Frank said.
And just look at it! I’d say this was a dream play area for just about anyone, not only dogs.
All of that hard work was worth it for Franks. When he sees that the dogs appreciate and love what he built, he feels good. “They go down there jumping and playing around, swinging on the swings. It’s pretty cool,” Franks happily reports.
