Katie here. I bet you’re getting tired of hearing from me every weekend, ey? I just wanted to tell you that they burned my park between when I was there last weekend and today! HUH!
My mama says they do that every other year or so, it helps keep invasive plants away. I don’t know. I just know it smells bad.
It’s a beautiful day here in Michigan and my mama took me for a quick trip to my park after we cleaned up the deck and sat out there for a bit. I was, as usual pretty excited.
Along the walk to the back of the park I stepped on a bunch of big burs and started limping. My mama is very observant and checked out my foot right away and found 4 big burrs tangled in my fur and running down right to my pads! She pulled them all out and I felt lots better, but when we got way back to the point furthest from the car I decided to limp again. Just to see what she’d do. She checked my foot again and didn’t see anything, but geeze, she wasn’t wearing her glasses so how much did she think she was going to see?
I decided I’d refuse to walk at all. I do that sometimes when I feel like messing with her. Then I asked her to pick me up so she did and we walked a little like that, but it got hot pretty fast, all my fur and her sweatshirt and all. So she put me down and told me I needed to walk. I did a little and then I stopped again. She sighed and picked me up for awhile. But it’s a long way back to the car and she said I needed to suck it up and walk some more. Then you know what she did? She dropped the leash and went on without me! HEY MAMA!
She walked up to the top of the next hill and turned around and you know where I was? Right in back of her that’s where I was! She can’t get away from me! Na-uh. So we walked a little bit more and then when I refused again she just left me again. After awhile she turned around and said “KATIE! COME!” just like in school and I ran really fast with all my furs flowing and sat in front of her just like I’m supposed to and she gave me a treat!
Well! After that I just walked along with her like a good girl, no more messing with her cause this time she got me good! Mamas are sometimes smarter than you think.
Anyway, it’s a good thing mama took pictures of the field of grass last weekend…
…because this weekend it’s all black.
But it will be green soon, the grass is already coming up.
See you guys next weekend I’m sure. Maybe she’ll take me somewhere new! I’m off to take a nap now.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
