Spring Adventure

It has been warm and sunny here and the doors and windows have been open a lot. Mom says that means spring is here. She has been working outside a little, getting the herb garden cleaned up and starting to re-pot the potted plants that survived the winter. She cleaned off the deck, put away the chair covers and brought out the cushions. She puttered around for a long time, rearranging furniture and plants.

We watched the birds on the garage roof from the dining room window and door. They weren’t deterred from gathering the seeds dropped by the big tree by mom’s bustling around.

She saw us staring at her through the screen door and she decided to let Ocean out. She always thinks she can trust him not to run away. Not much of anything scares him and he moves pretty slowly. Not that he’s old or anything, we are the same age, he is just lazy and unobservant. Echo and I watched him roll around in the sun and disappear out of our sight as he explored. I wanted to be out there, too, but I was a little nervous about it.

Of course, I had to roll around in the sunshine, too, and then check out all the wonderful smells. Once that was accomplished, I ventured a little farther out and even went into the grass.

He is a scaredy-cat so mom won’t let him out without being on a harness. She said he can come out next time. I think she was just too busy relaxing and drinking her wine to go get his harness.

Mom says she has to put the cushions back in the garage and we have to wait to go out again. Mom says that means spring is here!

    Looks like you had a fun outdoor adventure. My humans have also been out doing a lot of spring gardening, but I prefer to stay indoors.

    Hi Christy! We are having a tough time convincing Spring to STAY. We will have a couple of nice days – then cold again – and this morning WET SNOW! We want pretty weather and it’s having a hard time getting to us!!!

    Love, Sammy

  9. It sure does look like spring has sprung….at least there. We still have snow, then rsin, then gusts of wind and finally sun. Not spring yet over here.

    You guys are so lucky! I only get to go out on my harness (and sometimes Binga too) because it’s my human who’s the huge scaredycat! She worries that we’ll get startled and NOT run for the door, or that some coyote will snatch us before she can stop it (which has actually happened in our neighborhood, so she may have a point). Although maybe I should just be glad I get outside time at all.

  11. How lucky that you got some outside time. It may be spring, but here, someone forgot to send the memo to Mother Nature. It’s snowing right now! Yuck!

  12. What an adventure! Our weather has been very cool and rainy this week 🙁 Mudpie would love some outside time.

    Phoebe is jealous of that nice long grass you have, she would mow it all down for you if she could. Looks like you had a lot of fun.

      Mom says the grass is out of control! A nice neighborhood elf mowed our front lawn a few days ago but not the back. Mom doesn’t have a mower and it is hard to find people here. Mostly they weed wack!!
