Wet Weekend

Kassa here and I have a beef to pick.  First of all there was no grey play this weekend.  Dad said it was supposed to rain on Sunday so there would be no play.  Then he put me in the field all by myself on Saturday while he worked on other areas without ME!  I must admit I did enjoy sunning myself in the field but he is supposed to throw the ball more than 5 or 6 times for me to be happy.

Sunday we went back to the field just before the rain hit.  Dad said he was tired of me picking up ticks and eating the grass on the right side of the property and it was time to clean it up.  Just because I like to gorge myself on grass every once in a while and then regurgitate it on the carpet later doesn't mean it isn't a worth while experience.  Heres a before shot.

Here is the after shot.  Dad cleaned up most of the loose wood and trimmed up the grass.

Later we Dad said we will have a bon fire.  I don't know what that is but it sounds interesting.

After the rains subsided we came back in the evening.  Dad let me run a bit and then he did a horrible horrible thing.  He put me in the truck and he stayed in the field by himself.  WHY!  Something about dogs should never be in the same area as a chainsaw.  He then went to work on my beautiful field and cut down a bunch of stumps.  Those were my favorite pit stops. What is the man thinking.

So after he worked on decimating my field we went home and he had one last unthinkable task.  He gave me another BATH.  Now I smell like a freshly washed puppy.  When will this craziness end!

Lol, poor Kassa. Humans are totally weird sometimes. We're definitely wired differently to canines:) I must say your Dad did a wonderful job on your play ground, it's looking very swish. Beryl likes to regurgitate grass on the carpet too but that doesn't make it the right thing to do!!

Ugh! That's so backwards! He should have given you the bath first (if it was really necessary) and then taken you out to the play yard so you could get your stink back. You have my sincerest condolences!

Oh you poor thing. That all just sounds so wrong. I hope you survived all this craziness. I would be on the lookout for the bout of crazies. There are special places for that!!

Wow that is ALOT of yard work. Looks nice all cleaned up though.

That's quite a bit of work! The field looks great and a wonderful place to run.

I hate that I didn't get to meet you last weekend, Kassa... I already know your Dad so no biggie there. ;-P

It was unfortunate. Especially as, of the two us, Kassa is by far the more charming and better looking one LOL - JP
