- Jonathan Swift
As we all know it’s my garden and my blog but I hardly ever get a mention, let alone have my say. Ros has taken over. I said she could type, but I never said she could take over completely. I have things to say – about things that interest me – places I’ve been, dogs I’ve met, books I’ve read maybe.
We’ve decided Monday will be my day. Ros thinks it should be called Dog Dribble Day. I'm not sure. If you can think of a better name let me know.
Of course Ros will still type. Why have a human and type yourself?
There are quite a few dogs in the Garden Blog World, so if any of you Horticultural Hounds can convince your people to type up a post for you occasionally I’d love to hear what you’re doing. We can have our own Plant-loving Pooch Posts…..
For my first post I'll tell you what makes an ideal day.
Playing with Purple Pig. - Currently my favourite toy.
I love loud squeaky toys - the louder the better – I shake them and chew them – anything to make them squeal. Somehow most seem to loose their sound after a couple of days, though. Not sure how.
Naps - lots of naps – on my bed, on the couch, on my cushions, in the sun, in the shade. Now that I think about .it…. I’ll sleep anywhere… An ideal day has about a dozen naps, maybe more.
Patroling the garden. Someone has to keep an eye on things.
Time for another snooze before the boss get’s home.
I wait near the front gate so he knows where to find me.
When he gets home we might go for a walk. I love walks - or we’ll talk to the chooks. He brings them food. I check it out, but it’s fruit and vegie scraps - nothing dogs like. I’m a bit discriminating. There are things I won’t eat – like banana. I tried it once because the chooks seems to like it. Yuk! Spat it out.
Convince the boss to play for a while before dinner.
Did I mention I love food.
Then there’s just enough time for another nap before Ros gets home.
What makes your day ideal?
