Greetings and salutations, everyone; yes, once again it is I, Mani the somewhat small purebred border collie, filling in for the guy I live with, and here to bring you the latest news about me. You may remember me from such posts as “Helping In The Garden”, among so many others.
Here I am in a characteristic pose. I scratched myself under my left eye, probably chasing squirrels, which are quite chaseable, but the guy I live with says it will be okay. Really not very much has been happening at all lately. There’s been a lot of planting, and watering, and forgetting to water new plants, and moaning when it turns out they’ve fried, but it hasn’t rained here at all since July 11, so what does he expect? Best not to speculate, I say.
That’s what toys like that are for. The guy I live with said he guess so, with a sigh. I’ve chewed all the toys completely to pieces, which I understand is what I’m supposed to do. The guy I live with says it makes me happy, which is all that matters.
Other than that, well, let’s see. Lots of planting, as I said, and lots of complaining about the honey locust pods, which I haven’t tried yet, though I heard that all the other purebred border collies who have lived here really enjoyed snacking on them.
And I guess there was this scary visitor who appeared in the tree across the street. The guy I live with posted this picture on Facebook, but you can see it here, too. Pretty scary indeed, huh. The guy I live with says that that’s what the poles in the “way back” are for, for these scary things to land on, and survey stuff, but hopefully not survey me, if you know what I mean.
Until next time, then.
