Garden adventures

In my last post I wrote about the work I do in the garden: guardening. But that is not the only thing I do out there. You see: we have a very nice garden. It is not a huge estate, but it is big enough to do several fab things. I like to sunbathe on the terrace. And investigate the plants:

Sometimes I bring Chuck out in the garden. Chuck is my prey. He stays indoors most of the time, the poor bastard. I know he is a little afraid to go out, begin a chicken and all that, but I think it is important for him to be in the Great Outdoors now and then. The garden is just what he can handle, so that is fine. I am sure he is grateful to me, for bringing him out into the fresh air.

There is something else I do in the garden, but that is a secret. No one knows, not even M, so please do not tell her. I would like to show it to you, though, because adventures tend to get even more exciting when shared. This is it, my Secret Project:

I am digging a tunnel! To… well, I do not exactly know where to. I guess I’ll find out when I get there.

You see: our garden is a great place to be!

Guardening

We have been out in the garden a lot recently. M has been working with the plants en bushes, making it all look pretty. She likes doing that. My task is to guard our property, so no cat or pigeon will enter it. Nor foxes nor rabbits, although I would like to chase a trespassing fox out of our garden! Alas, there are no smells of foxes or rabbits near our garden, so I guess they avoid us because they know I am here. Pity.

So M is gardening and I am guarding. Which, in a garden like this, is demanding because there are so many sounds and smells  – human and feline – around us. It is guardening!

Pretty pose

Sometimes a dog just has to do what her human tells her, to make her human happy. Even if you do not see the point in doing it. We were walking near a pretty field of flowers and P just had to make a picture of me. So I put on my ‘I am a very sweet dog-face’ and sat pretty for the picture.

After that, I had to walk along with P, on the leash. Too bad. I would really have liked to crash through these pretty flowers, tossing all their fluttery leaves high up in the air.
