Hello everyone; yes, once again it is I, Mani the purebred border collie, here today to show you my new discovery, since there’s no gardening going on today. (There’s snow on the ground.)
What happened today was that I discovered I can get onto the couch. Here I am on the couch, in what I believe to be a fairly cute pose. The guy I live with keeps saying how cute I am, so I must be, I guess. Be sure to notice my spotted tummy. I came with that, by the way; it wasn’t a painting accident or anything. Well, so, there’s this couch in the living room. The guy I live with says it’s rattan, and was made about eighty years ago, maybe more, and so is what I would call really, really old.
I don’t know why the light was on, there. Anyway, I understand that years ago there was some talk of getting rid of this ancient rattan furniture, but the guy I live with protested, saying that all the border collies who have lived in this house have absolutely loved the couch.
The first one, Flurry, ate a lot of the stuffing out of the cushions, and so there’s hardly any stuffing left, which is why there are blankets on the couch. The couch is really creaky, so I can’t get up there in secret.
Well, that’s really all there is. I guess there’s a little “forced vacation from gardening”, which is making someone slightly frustrated, but he spends the time playing with me, so that’s not so bad.
I did get left at home today for just a little while; I spent the time in my new, big fort, which I’m beginning to like a lot. It has a bathroom rug from Pottery Barn in it, and that’s very comfortable indeed.
Until next time, then.
