Mystery Object

Hey everybody - it's me, Tommy.
You know, I love my backyard. It's a great place to sniff, run, lift my leg, and play with my toys, all in a wooded setting, the kind of setting that helps bring out my inner dog. You know what they say . . . "you can take the dog out of the woods, but you can't take the woods out of the dog."
So after all this time, I know every inch of my backyard, every toy, every tree (yep, I've gotten them all), etc. But this yellow thing here, the one pictured, it's got me baffled. It looks like something left by a space alien. Once in a while, my daddy takes me on the leash back there and just stands there until I lift my leg. I don't know why he does it. I sniff it, it smells awful. Then, I stand around for a few moments, then what the hey, I'm not going to stand here like a dope forever, so I water the tree next to it. It's then I'm led away, my daddy muttering something, and finally taken off the leash to run and play.
Anyone out there in the blogosphere got a clue? What is it?

oh, tommy, you good-for-nothing mut, that yellow thing is meant for little cockapoos to lift their leg on and do their business. i always knew you took after you mother more than me.. cocker spaniels never have been the smartest pooches here on mt. airy.
