The Day Scooter Lost his Marbles. Also New Neighbors Move in.

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

We've been doing double duty this weekend.  Trying to get out full amount of napping in and following Mom around the backyard as she fiddles around.  Not like with a musical fiddle, that would be worse than listening to Pepper sing!.

She's been pulling stuff up, chopping stuff off, stuffing buckets full of stuff into a bigger bucket that will get hauled out Monday for early morning Tuesday noise making pick up.

She got the lawn mowed and the clean up crew settled in for some edging work.
Nom Nom Nom.  Fresh grass.
 This went on for a while.
Nom Nom Nom.  Fresh grass.
 Cutter was buzzing back and forth across the yard, through the house, back across the yard, and just put that on repeat until you want to just rig up some twine and trip him just once.  BOL.
Here I Come to Save the Day.

Paws of Lightning.

Pointed Ears.

Dog With Floofy Tail.

Oh, nothing up here to save.
 Meanwhile Scooter has discovered he has no inner "bovine" in him.  It's sadly just outer "bovine" he is packing around.
Bluch!!  Grass is gross.

Did you see that?
Well look behind me - that's an entire pot full of WEEDS Mom hasn't even bothered to move yet.
 Scooter takes some time to pretend nothing has happened.  I think he needs to teach courses in this topic.
Just scratching my ears in the sunshine.
And then this happened.  Except Scooter was inside taking his nap in the stale house air.  Too much fresh air and he gets tired.


Right there on top of our fence.

By the time Scooter got out to take a look.

Please cue evil bird type music.

Now this EVIL NEMESIS CROW!! and the entire EVIL NEMESIS CROW!! family live around here.  Somewhere in some of those trees you see up yonder.  They steal stuff all the time.  Especially this time of the year when they are building nests.  We still have a clay 1 1/2" clay pot the scoundrels flew off with that they decided was too heavy and dropped it on our roof.

Remember  Cutter's talk about Hens & Chiggens?

They'll take as much of these as they want while Mom is at work and we can't do a thing about it because we are napping and stuff.  I mean I'm in the spa, the other minions under my domain are getting docked in their pay!

Well Mom had been helping the new neighbors move in.  Helping them landscape and making it all comfy.  The house had been in shambles since the winter weather took toll.  Of course we all hung outside basking in sunshine or shade as needed.
Mid summer last year.

The old summer abode is not as tidy as this picture looks.

So then this bugger came back for a visit only he stole stuff off the deck.  He took Scooter's bag of marbles.
Scooter's marbles.  

After the EVIL NEMESIS CROW!! tried to fly off with an open bag.
So we need to do what we can to save Scooter's marbles and still help the neighbors move in.  After we've all calmed down from the horrendous incident (I of course leading the charge from the safety of the deck benches) we got down to some serious work.

Scooter checking in for yard patrol.
Fresh air to the front, warm butt in the house.
First we threw in some new lawn.
We still have some work to do Mom still has some work to do so I think we'll just head on back into the house until there is something more exciting going on.  

Still lacking in a bit of curb appeal if you ask me.
 Mom tried to have a bird sanctuary.
Tweet, tweet, twitter, cheep, cheep.


Until this Quacker thought he could settle in.

Fly along noisy Quacker!

The front yard is taking shape for the ol' Loveshack.  
Who knew our new neighbors would be so groovy.  They've got glow in the dark mood lighting, lucky turtles, pink chiggens...they might have it all.

Pink Chiggens!!

Can you see any of Scooter's marbles?

Well that's been our afternoon so far today.  Hope all you other pups out there are getting fresh air, skritches to your belleh and extra sunshine hours to laze in.
