Workin' Wednesday!

After getting two solid months of rain, the grass grows faster, its greener, the trees grow faster and the leaves are greener. The weeds are unbelievable! It is all just a lot to manage!

Here am I under the lilac bushes looking for tennis balls on Mom's orders. She says it would be nice if I could learn to run the mower, but unfortunately, its that thumb deal again.
After we finished mowing Mom went out to Wally World with a friend and I took a nap.
We hope that you are having a nice day!

I read somewhere that you can buy robot mowers these days that need neither humans nor dogs to operate them. I wish Gail would get one. All those hours she spends mowing the lawn could be so much more usefully spent taking me for walks!
Did you find any tennis balls?
Maybe you've been watching Wimbledon? Us Scottish dogs are very excited about Andy Murray!
Cheers, H.

Hey Stella! My humans are the same as yours. Rain rain rain makes the grass grow grow grow and then they mow mow mow!

I pout but it does no good.

Boy, Stella, you really have to keep an eye out for those tennis balls! Our momma ran one over once and it made a great, big noise just before it blew into smithereens!☺

It's difficult to help the moms but we do our best with our nap, don't you think?

Did you find any tennis balls? Maybe Mom should have gotten you some new ones at Wally World. Our grass got cut today too, but it is all burning out with the hot sun.

Looks like you had a nice working day, Stella!

Tennis balls? Did you say tennis balls? I'd be happy to lend my services hunting for those. But I'm too short to push a lawnmower. And I'm guessing it's much too much work. I'd rather play. With you. And with tennis balls.

Our momma has thumbs but she doesn't mow. She has to keep them safe so that she can use the can opener for us.

seems like all we wait for is a few nice days--between the rain and the snow it just doesn't seem fair!

Life With Dogs said...

You need a riding mower Stella - no thumbs required and you can see all of the tennis balls from your vantage point. And squirrels disappear in a hurry!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

We could use some of that rain out here in California -- can you tell the clouds to head this way?

Kathryn and Ari said...

I think the "thumb deal" is just an excuse you dogs have settled upon, Stella. Though if it means not having to mow my lawn, I'd consider chopping off both of mine!

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

You don't need to run the mower! All you have to do is a combination of digging and trampling. Dig up all the grass and trample down all the weeds.

The thumbs! It always comes down to the thumbs, doesn't it?
Play bows,

Wish you could send us some rain...we can't remember the last time it rained here in North Georgia!
Wrooo wrooo!

Did you find any tennis balls Stella? I does not know what Mum will do if we ever had our own grass to look after, our old house just had gravel. Cos she be scared of them lawn mower things. Silly huh.
I has my computer back now and I sure has missed you!

At least you get to be outside when the lawn mower machine is working. I get locked up because I always run in front of it yelling at Master to get off.


Hero said...

I'm usually not a fan of rainy days, but I think we're in need of some where I live. All my grass is dry and yellow and not so much fun to roll around in. Perhaps you can offer to help maintain your yard by eating some grass? That's how I pitch in at my house.

Hi Stella, hope you found all your tennis balls...if you need more justlet me know, I have a private stash I can send ya :wink:
