When we got there what do I find? 2 turtles on the back deck.
I had never seen a turtle in real life. I was fascinated. They would come to the surface and I'd give them a lick. Yummmm turtle.
At the back fence along the length of the yard there is this cool little stream. It was so over grown, if you had not heard the water trickling along you would not know it was there. And all the vegetation along the stream was thick and TALL. This job needed more than a trimmer. So while Tasha and her mom (My MOM's sister) hung out in the front yard with Tasha's 4 kids MOM began working to clear the tall stuff and the stream.
On the other side of the fence just behind the stream were Lamas! I have seen them from afar but never up close. This is Larry.
And this is Lucy
I went over to say hello, being the friendly dog that I am.
Well hello Larry and Lucy, I'm Goose, it's nice to meet you.
And then....... Larry spit in my face! He spit at me! I don't know much about Lamas but if this is how they greet I bet they don't have many friends.
GROSS! I have Lama spit in my face. I need to go stick my head in the stream. Note to self- do not get within spitting distance of Larry.
Checking out MOM's work. Before you could not see the stream. And the vegetation was way taller than me.
Good job MOM, but you forgot a stick over there. I'll get it.
MOM said I was a big help in clearing out the sticks and a few small trees. "Hey I am Goose, and I do sticks."
I got a little muddy helping MOM. This was just the beginning. At the end I had mud up to my shoulders. All in a days work. If you think I am muddy and dirty you should have seen MOM. You would think I would get some sort of reward for helping. This is my reward.
A BATH! Really? I don't see why I need a bath. We are just going back tomorrow cuz there is so much more to do.
"Am I dry enough now to go chew my stick in the grass?"
I was. nom nom.
Woo I am one tired pup. I wonder what tomorrow will bring.
