Hey! Maddie Couric here!
Mom’s been really busy this week, and she hasn’t had a lot of time to find a story or take any photos. She was all worried about that, but a few minutes ago I confessed to her the Fluffy One and I stole her camera one day this week when she wasn’t looking and made us a dog-u-mentary. There’s things going in this yard that needed exposing, and with mom so busy and all, we dog-tectives got on the case ourselves.
Bear was my camera-dog, and this little expose’ is entitled “We’re Got Critters”, or “How to Rid Your Mom and Dad’s Yard of Critters in Three Easy Lessons.” You might want to gather your dogs around your computer so they can read this with you . . . . or, if they can’t read (and, I’m sorry to have to say it, but if they can’t, whose fault is that), they can at least look at the pictures.
Now here’s the problem as the Golden Boy and I see it. There are two main critters in our lake yard – one is the mole, and the other is the squirrel. There is absolutely nothing the monster boy can do about moles because I – and don’t think I haven’t tried – cannot teach him to dig. Oh, occasionally he’ll bury his favorite tennis ball under some pine straw in the flower bed, but when it comes to sniffing out moles, you’d think the good Lord forgot to put the mole-sniffing gene in his nose (instead, I think He gave him extra hair genes – but that’s another story).
Anyway, I’m totally in charge of moles (the squirrel problem story will air at a time to be announced later), and here’s what you have to do . . . . . all you little terrier dogs out there move in closer.
Wait, wait, wait. . . . . . “Bear! Go back inside and get the tape measure!”
That’s our little dog-u-mentary on Mole Catching. I know you like to look at pretty pictures when you come here, so my camera-dog and I took some of those too (anything to keep Mom’s readers happy).
The Bearster and I hope all you folks have a real nice weekend. Ya’ll have fun, play with your dogs a lot, and, for Pete’s sake, teach them to read!
