My Work is Never Done

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 Mom up to our new house site on a very steep hill.  new home

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.mole

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.
