Greetings everyone! This is Diva Dog. I've usurped the computer while Mama Curmudgeon is teaching and Momma Wing Nut is grocery shopping.
Spring, or almost spring, is a difficult time for me. You see, my mamas love to work outside in the gardens any time there is a warm and sunny day, which means fewer trips to the off-leash parks for me. They mumble something about "only so many hours in the day," and usually the garden wins out over me. So then I feel a bit neglected and under-exercised. But yesterday I whined and moaned, I mean managed to convince them to spend some time with me and go to the dog park! I'm glad I did, too, because today is cool, gray and rainy.
Momma Wing Nut drove us all the way over to Marymoor Park where we all had a nice long walk through the grassy areas along the creek.
I searched for squirrels and bunnies in the wooded areas.
I even dipped my toes in the water a bit. But I'm not really a swimmer or retriever, you know.
I'm a shepherd and guardian, used to patrolling the meadows and making sure the fences are secure.
I stopped chasing my ball for a few minutes to enjoy the warm glow of sunshine upon my fur. My mamas "oohed" and "aaahed" over my beauty and took these lovely photos. I indulged them a bit -- they are so easily entertained.
After playing for an hour or so, we headed home. I was tired but happy!
After lunch, my mommas then went out to the garden and spent the entire afternoon outside. I, of course, wanted to be with them, so I joined them outside. I don't understand what a pea trellis is, but Momma Wing Nut tried to build one while I tried to take a nap on the patio.
They also put up a teepee for some other peas and put down some burlap bags that a fellow gardener graciously shared with them. Here's a photo of the garden yesterday afternoon. I think the other photos on this post are much more interesting, but anyway...
Sigh... They really are gardening fanatics, but I love them dearly.
