Mom has been very busy gardening. That means I get to go outside with her and watch. And nap in the grass which is very nice.
I’ve learned a lot from her.
Did you know that when you’re ripping weeds and grass out of an area where you are going to put down rocks and you find a worm, you say, “Go help the iris” and throw the worm into other plants? Apparently worms aren’t very smart because you say it a lot.
I also like the digging part. Last night when I was digging, Mom looked over and said, “What are you doing?” but she said it in a happy voice so I kept digging. I didn’t find anything so I went back to sniffing which is one of the things I’m VERY good at.
Then Mom dumped the firebowl and she made mud. She dumped it because there was a lot of water in it and she explained that you can’t make fire when there is water in the bowl (which is fine with me because I don’t like fires). She made mud because she isn’t a very good dumper and the water didn’t exactly go where she wanted it to. She said some things in a not so happy voice.
Do you know what Mom says when you play in the mud she just made? It’s not “Go help the iris.” It’s not even the same thing she said when she made the mud. And it’s not in a very happy voice.
And then she said, “Oh, Puppy….” and the next thing I knew I was having a bath.
