Hey, pups! Mom got another e-mail saying I am a Dogster Diary Pick today again, BOL! Thank you again, Dogster!
Well, not too much has happened since yesterday. While the peeps worked in the garden, I took myself exploring. Now what did the peeps do in the garden, you might ask? Well daddy planted 19 lilacs around the garden, hopefully this will eventually be a wind break, and mom is trying to catch up on the weeding after all the rain we have had. The weeds are currently taller than the vegetables, so mom was down on her hands and knees pulling the weeds from between the plants. Oh, I forgot, daddy also planted a columnar crabapple by the deck.
So while they were doing that, I took myself on an adventure, and when I was good and tired I came back and then I chilled (literally) in my swimming pool! Sorry, no pictures - I have such a bad momma. Oh, I should also mention that in an effort to keep the deer, rabbits and moose out of the garden, daddy built a wire fence around the whole garden, mom has moved my pool into that area and will also be moving my gazebo into the enclosed area. Note that the lilacs are inside this fenced area, so hopefully they will grow!
Later in the day the peeps took themselves out to a party without me. I was left to guard the house all alone and they didn't even turn on the radio for me! Something about an electrical storm outside and the reception on the radio was bad, pffft, whatever. They say they were only gone for 5 hours, but it felt like 5 days or weeks or months or something like that.
This morning, after I thought they had slept enough, hey, it was already 5:45 a.m.(!) I awakened mom with a cold, wet, nose in the eye! Yeah, I am nice like that! Then she took me outside and I chased a rabbit over the river bank. Fun!
A word of warning to other pups that want to chase rabbits over the river bank. River banks have wild rose bushes, and if you have longer hair like me, you get said wild rose bushes entangled in your hair. This especially hurts if it is in a sensitive area like your backside. Ask me how I know this. As I have longer hair, mom didn't see my predicament when I came in, or maybe she was just too tired! No matter. I pulled the offending rose branches off of my backside and I left them on the carpet for her to step on with her barefeet. She was quite appreciative of this!
Well, hope everyone has a good day and thanks again Dogster!
Congrats again, Buddy!
Stay out of rose bushes, OK? Them wild ones are furry prickly indeed!
I did another good round of digging...but like you growlmy said her camera was in the house...
Good Luck with the fencing... LOL
We have Goat Head burred grass here.. they are nasty.. and you cant see them till you tread on them.. and they get in fur and paws and feet... we understand !
