I realize I have been too busy playing outside to blog. Mom said I will lose my fans unless I get to work, but I have been working all day!
First I had to walk Dad early in the morning fog. It was pretty we like spider webs. Sometimes webs get on my face I don’t like that. But I like the morning walks, I am quite handsome in the morning sun.
Then I had to walk down the hill past where we live to get to the river. There was a mole under the grass, so I had to dig.
Then I had to dig some more. It’s my job I must work. There are moles everywhere I must dig, dig.
Also last night Mom left the gate unlatched I ran. I ran down our hill, up the hill to see Esa and Sam and No-name we ran. Mom had to come get me I did not come when Mom and Dad called, I was tired but I still had to dig. My face gets dirty and my paws get dirty but I must dig. If the mole gets away I have not done my job. Mom won’t let me kill the moles she puts them back and I have to leave the area. I like when they try to fight me I weigh 70 pounds and 9 ounces now. They cannot win.
I am very handsome with dirt on my face I am a working dog. Mom made me go in the river I liked it. I got the dirt off of my white parts and shook all over Mom and got her pants wet she does not care. Mom said she expects no less from me I don’t know what that means.
When we walk back up the steep dirt road to our house it makes me tired. I lie down in the grass and I won’t get up I pant I am tired. Mom tells me “TAKODA GET UP, I AM HOT. Let’s go get some water and cool off.” Mom is not wearing a black fur coat she does not know hot. Plus, I do all the digging and I just had all the water I need in the river I am not thirsty I just need to lie down.
I get burrs in my fur. They are not very attractive so Mom pulls them off and I eat them all. She said I don’t have to eat them but I think it is another one of my jobs so I eat burrs. Then I nap for several hours so I can walk Mom again later. My work is never done.
