When a mini heatwave descended this week, indoor work was abandoned in favour of gardening. As always, Beanie and Biggles wanted to ‘help’ with everything.
We have a large back lawn so Beanie and Biggles like to help out by eating bits of cut grass that the lawnmower leaves behind. We’re used to finding bits of cut grass all over the house, but this time Biggles surpassed himself. I walked into the hall and saw something suspiciously ‘poo-shaped’ nestling by the skirting board. I called Paul in to investigate and after a bit of poking we included it was indeed a Biggle-poo. But made 100% of fresh, odorless green grass! We’re pretty sure that it must have gone through the ‘Biggle processing plant’ – how else would it get perfectly poo-shaped? All very mysterious!
Next up was digging the flower beds and planting some new clematis. Beanie and Biggles are very good at digging and they particularly like to dig where we’ve been digging. Needless to say, all of our flower beds end up looking like this:
…which kind of defeats the purpose!
When Paul and I had finished work for the day Beanie and Biggles were still going strong. A Beagle’s work is never done!!
Mad chases around the garden:
Fetching that pesky ball again, and again, and again:
And of course arguing loudly over a sock (the neighbours really appreciate this one!):
After all that hard work you can’t beat a nice cuppa:
…and a spot of sunbathing:
