Helping Mom Rake Leaves
Anyway, it was a really nice day on Tuesday, so we dogs all went out in the yard and helped Mom with the Big Raking Project. There's a lot of stuff to do when you're raking, so it's a good thing Mom had us around to help out.
If you get bored, you might go looking for something else that's interesting to do. We were lucky that Mel discovered some kind of yummy-smelling critters in the woodpile. Mom said they were probably chipmunks because sometimes chipmunks come and live in our woodpile. They used to live in the space under our sun room, but then Uncle Mike fixed it so they couldn't get in there, which was kind of sad because we liked to try to catch them. And a couple of times we really did catch them.
Mel stayed outside and took a nap there. He's more of an outdoor-type guy than the rest of us dogs. Barry doesn't care much for the outdoors, unless Mom is there, so he stayed outside with her the whole time. He helped by checking for fresh, edible poop in the leaf piles and also by counting all the bags after they were full.
I'm afraid it's going to stay cold and icky for quite a while now, like, maybe until spring. Winter is not my favorite season because winter makes me cold. Brrrr! I think I will go find a nice blankie to curl up in now!
