Baby loves to stand in the backyard every night and wait for the varmints. Being she has arthritis, that takes its toll on her daily allotment of painless movement. So during the day, she sleeps and stays on her futon rather than goes outside.
Baby has one more leg to get on her CD, and we have another dog show coming up in just a couple weekends where she can achieve this. So starting tonight, Baby is on varming-watching restriction. She is not allowed to hang outside waiting for varmints till the wee hours of the night, or until the rest of us have bedtime. No, she’s not! Now she has to come in and have family time just like everyone else. She’s not happy about this and has got a bit sulky.
But such is life. I told her once she gets her CD, she can watch varmints till the cows come home. Or the corn grows. We are going to be planting a vegetable garden in that spacious area in the no-dog zone shortly. I ordered the seeds yesterday and they are on their way to Fort Doberdale as I write. So are the sweet potatoes, which is the crop we especially want to grow.
This will be two of the summer month’s goals here in Fort Doberdale. Baby’s CD and a veggie garden. I’m not sure which one will be more challenging!
