You say Tomato, I say Wyatt

I'm spending a few hours in the kennel everyday, to heal my sore leg. This is super boring....I feel just fine and I want to come out and help with the gardening. Please, Please, Please, I can be a good dog.
What's this you are doing?  Planting tomato seeds?  I can help with that!
Mmmmm, organic dirt. This smells good enough to eat.
Wait! Something is missing........
This project would be better with a dog toy in the middle of it all.
What's this flimsy little tray for? You can see right through these things.
Ooops! I spilled some seeds on the driveway. Maybe tomatoes will just sprout up in the gravel.
What do you mean, when you say "Get your big nose out of here!"
Fine, I'll take my toy and go.
You can never stay mad at me. Look at how darn cute I am!

Taxes Schmaxes!

We took a look at the calendar today and had a little freak out. It's almost March!  We have been so busy having fun outside, that we forgot to get our tax papers organized. I'm trying to find all the 1099 forms for Mom. "Hey Mom, am I a dependent, or a sub-contractor?" 
Here's the form you were looking for.
It tastes exactly like the tax form that I ate last year, so it must be the right one!
You know, it's really sunny outside. We are pretty sure that the IRS would understand, that you need to come outside and throw the ball for me and Stanzie.
If you are going to lock me out of the office, you better get some curtains, because I can still see you! Don't you love me anymore.......

Talk about lame!

Quick! Call OSHA! Get the workmans compensation claim forms! We have had a dog on the job injury!
It appears that I have a bit of a hiccup in my step. A hitch in my giddy up, if you will. The veterinarian said no rough play, running, jumping or digging for 2 weeks. I guess she did not notice that I am an Airedale.

So we, (Mom), decided that I should join the safety committee. I now have my own hard hat, safety vest and safety glasses. Maybe I should do some warm up exercises before I head out.

Do these hats come in any other color? I believe that white should only be worn between Memorial Day and Labor Day. What kind of Mickey Mouse company are we running here anyway?
Does this vest make me look fat?
The things I put up with......talk about lame!

Smack Down Doggies

I woke up this morning to 28 degrees. The frosty temperature makes me frisky. My sister likes the cold weather too. So, I start the first of our many wrestling matches of the day.

Oh how I torment her so. Lots of bitey face action to start.
When she gets really riled up, I have to throw myself down and cry "Uncle"!
See, I'm moving so fast, the pictures are blurry. My photographer cannot find the 'Airedale Scoot Butt' setting on the camera. I tell her that's because it's called the 'Airedale Scamper Pants' setting. Now that we have that straightened out....
Stanzie is bigger than me and she usually gives me a good pummeling.
But, I am 'Whirling Dervish No Brakes Wyatt'!
Okay, let's call a truce. My leg hurts! Get off me!
Happy Digging,

Wyatt to the rescue!

It's a good thing that I'm here to help. Last year, Stanzie dug up all the strawberries when Mom was not home. Stanzie did it, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!   So, here I am, helping Mom put some strawberry runners back in the ground.
The sun is so awesome today.  I lay down in the Vinca and have a little "Me Time".
NOoooooo.....Not my new Jungle Toy!!
 Phew, just in the nick of time!  Watch it Dad.
Happy Digging,

I love compost


Today we received 6 yards of compost.
It smells divine and tastes even better!
Compost is soft and feels nice on my tummy.
My sister likes it too.
We spend most of the day playing "King of the Hill".
"Give it up Stanzie, you're such a girl!"
Happy Digging!

Too many distractions!

I'm suppose to be helping in the garden today. But I just got this new thing from Costco called "Jungle Pull Toy". It's furry and it squeeks and it has tug handles. This is the perfect toy!
Stanzie is over there eyeballing me. I know she wants it. But I'm not going to let her have it, because she will bury it.
Forget it Missy! You got your own "Jungle Pull Toy". Back off sister!
Mom tries to take it away from me, so we can get to work. "I don't think so!"
So, Mom opens the door and I run in and steal Stanzie's bed and drag it through the mud and down the driveway.
OH, you just washed this?  SORRY....
Being scolded makes me thirsty.
I have to look for that big frog anyway.
I decide to help Mom, before she gets mad. I guess I can help move a few bulbs around.
Happy Digging,
Wyatt

My Valentine

I'm all set for my big Sunday sleep in.
What's that you say? Valentines Day today!
Look what my friends Jeff and Marguerite gave me! A valentine that has a picture of me and my sister on it, and pretty flowers for my Mom! They're super duper!
Then the day went downhill from there...Time for my Sunday night bath. More like my semi-annual bath, from the looks of that ring around the tub!
I'll be smelling fine now!

Happy Digging,
Wyatt
