A spot of gardening

The humans decided to do some work in the backyard over the long weekend, and being good doggies, Floyd and I lent a paw to help.

Floyd helped with the pruning...

And I helped with the raking...

The humans dragged this thingy out of an over grown garden (they only bought the house a few months before us dogs moved in) Floydie thought it was a big, fancy water bowl...


I had to explain it was for birdies.

Helping was pretty fun, but I think the humans are a bit confused... I mean isn't gardening about DIGGING holes??
Why were they filling in our Somedoggy's holes? Isn't that reverse gardening?!

  1. Humans are so silly. They fill my holes so I keep having to dig them. UMMM!?! Stop doing that so I don't have to keep RE DOING MY WORK!

    Dumb dumbs.

  4. We're with you. Gardening is about digging...and pruning. Humans often get things backwards. SHE'd like to have a bird bath but we chase away all the birds. SHE put in natives to attract the honeyeaters..but we chase them too. A few cheeky birds have baths in our water tank when it's full.

  5. Haha - my Shadow used to sneak up behind me and as I put seeds in, she'd eat them up! To her it was such a fun game! Glad you had a good time gardening and that isn't a bird feeder - it definitely looks like a doggy water bowl to me too! :)

  9. Hahaha it totally is reverse gardening! Maybe they're just filling them in for you to dig again? ;-) Good job on helping though!

  11. Floyd reminds me of what I used to do at his age. I faithfully protected the wild bird food that They set out-especially from the wild birds who were the only ones that tried to steal it.

    1. Were you protecting it so you could eat it?
