We are exhausted...

Mum got a bee in her bonnet after church that we should do some spring cleaning. "Whatever for?" I asked, the dog run is perfectly suited to be the catchall of the house. But Mum had ordered a dumpster and she filled it in an hour and while not completely finished, felt she had made progress. The she locked me (not Cooper, but me) in the house and cut the front and back lawns. Apparently because Cooper does not try to attack the lawn mower he can stay outside.

After she got that done then Mum took a long look at the mud situation which in Oregon is part and parcel of life. It seems Mum does not like all the mud we have been tracking into the house. Who knew?
You can see the mud patch we have created this past winter. We are creatures of habit, why use the ramp when we can track in mud?

Mum got some pavers to see if she can "re-direct" our paws. Not likely.

Then it was time to take a look at the house.

Definite need for some color, don't you think? Well I told Mum it was not just needed, it was mandatory!

It's a start but I am not sure Mum actually put these plantings together. I suspect Home Depot had a hand in it.

Because of lack of food I have been forced to consume the birdseed that has fallen under the apple tree. What little nutrition I can get from the seed keeps me alive but I cannot last long. (That is a hint for you to send me food and quickly).

This is Cooper. He says he is frozen in disbelief at my claims. I have no idea what the means but ignore it.

Love, Dozer

Oooh. If your Mom has all that energy, maybe she can come visit us. We've got huge amounts of mud, and Mom's been slacking on the cleaning.... ;-)

Wow! Your mom does have a whole bee hive in her bonnet. We get bursts of home improvement plans when spring hits too...we understand!

I'm sorry you are starving and forced to eat bird food. What next? Dirt and sticks? What is with the mom getting all mental fits lets clean the place up now? So much energy.

Well, that's a report that runs the gamut: Dozer is moving well and looking good and is apparently healthy enough to dispatch another stuffie; on the other paw, Dozer is being starved to death! We'll try and sniff out your snail mail and send you some emergency provisions fit for a dog. You should probably share with Cooper; it's the brotherly thing to do, and that way he won't rat you out to your mom.

Oh, it's muddy here, too. We consider it beauty treatment for our paws. After all, people pay lots to go to spas and get mud baths and stuff. We just cut out the expensive middle man.

Perhaps I should call SPCA to come rescue you both? Or come over here, we have PLENTY of food to share with you.

Poor starving, mistreated, locked up Dozer! Clearly, they are unfair to you there!!! We will think about you. Our mama starves us, too and locks us up when she cleans the floor because she says we track our footprints all over it when she mops. SO unfair. And when it rains, she makes us get towel dried in the garage on the cold, hard floor before she will let us in the house! It is hard to be a corgi.

Smoochies from Finn and Lola!
