Yard Help by Skeeter
A little while back Tina “In the Garden” posted a picture of BJ her Golden with his ball. As Tina takes to the yard to dig a hole to plant something, BJ is there with his ball. As she bends down to pull a weed, BJ is there with his ball. When Tina is in the yard, her Fur Baby BJ is always there with his trusty ball ready for duty.
The Saint and I visited Tina one fall afternoon last year. As we strolled along in her garden, BJ stayed at the Saint’s side with his ball through most of our journey. BJ loved the Saint throwing the ball for him. The Saint missed a lot of the garden due to BJ’s distraction. We need another visit to Tina’s garden some day so the Saint can see what he missed! Hum, I wonder, can a dog be taught to pull weeds? I bet Tina would really enjoy BJ’s help a bit more then!
I am not lucky enough to have a garden helper in the yard with me. My kitties stay in the house at all times where all is secure. This morning I dreamed that I had let Cheetah out to enjoy the sun beam in the backyard and she ran off into the scary woods. I was frantically searching for her to no avail. I woke up from my nightmare to find both my furry babies comfortable snuggled up with me in the bed! Wow, what a relief for me to see my girls snug as bugs in a rug after such a scary dream!
My parents have three cats which stay inside only. However, dad (Big Daddy) has a helper while in the yard. In the picture above, you will see this beautiful fluffy boy (Mr. McTavish) getting the lawn mower seat warmed up for my Big Daddy. This pretty boy belongs to the neighbors but comes to visit my parents every day. Heck, he practically lives with my parents! He has his own spot on the screened porch for snooze time! He follows Big Daddy all over the yard like a little puppy dog. Big Daddy really enjoys him being around to assist in the yard work. Molly dog would follow Big Daddy around in the yard and kept him company. She has been over the Rainbow Bridge for many years now but I know he still misses her. I think Mr. McTavish kind of fills that void feeling while in the yard with Molly’s absence…
Anyone else have any furry help while in the yard for work or a stroll???
Just remember, keep them safe while doing yard work...
