What's a Dog to Do?
All week long I gardened. I dug, I weeded, I planted. And there by my side the entire time was my faithful puppy. She was so involved with what I was doing - interested in everything that was going on.
You can tell by the excitement in her eyes that this is her idea of a great day! Just being near me is enough to make her eyes light up with joy.
Yes, she is really getting into the spirit of a week filled with me on my hands and knees in the dirt and mud pulling out foot after foot of crabgrass roots. The enthusiasm is overwhelming.
Here's a really fun moment - when I toss the compost into the bin. I have her complete attention here for sure.
I don't think she can contain herself much longer. I can see that her heart must be racing a mile a minute with all of the excitement that gardening can provide to our pup. Yup, racing away.
Whew, that was a close one - I thought for sure she would actually stand up or something! It's clear to me that our pup loves weeding about as much as I do.
I knew we were simpatico on some level. Good pup!
