But first let me answer a question many of you had about Voles. They are mouse like creatures that have long front bottom teeth that are kind of scary looking.
They make under ground tails in your lawn and LOVE to eat bulbs and flowers and roots. In the winter you do not notice the trails because they are under the snow. But once the snow melts it's like a winding race track across your lawn and in your flower beds. Imagine being in a helicopter above a big city freeway system with all the road going every which way. That's what a yard can look like if you have voles.
This is a small example of a vole highway.
And now on to the great day.
What are Belle and I looking at?
The stock is under way
I think I have pretty good form
No cat was harmed in the chase
Belle kept a close eye on this guy. He kept stealing our Cheetos
Then it was off to the fort with my friends
(Click on this photo to see all my friends wonderful faces closer)
Belle, like Bert, loves the water. She is not crazy loco about it like him, but still she enjoys it
Do I even have to say it? Oh ok, STICK
I can always count on Murphy to join in the stick chewing while the other pups jump and splash in the pond
That is until Bert decided he wants Murphy's stick
Belle kept us all safe as we chewed sticks and played in the water. There is NO WAY a squirrel will fly in from above to disrupt our fun. Belle is the squirrel eradicater supreme
The group shot. Can you tell I am ready to GO?
And go I did, with my favorite gal pal down the woods path
Belle: "Goose this has been a wonderful day, thank you."
Goose: "Belle you are so welcome. It's always a better and more beautiful day if I get to share it with you. Tomorrow lets just kick back and see what comes our way."
