Garden Duty

Happy Sunday everybuddy!

Every morning when she opens the back door Lucy and I race to the back of the garden in a ferocious manner to scare off any vermin/predators that may still be lurking.

Even though we have short legs, a Scotty can scoot really fast when he wants to!

After the initial barrage we take a slow investigation of who has been where and done what during the hours of darkness…

Lots of animals come into our garden at night.  Foxes, CATS! possibly rodents and vermin so this survey keeps us quite busy.

Have a lovely day today.

    Hector it is very wise of you and Lucy to investigate your perimeter each morning. There could be some very important messages left for you.
    Heaven forbid the cat who invades your turf….MOL
    Hugs from Madi your BFFF

    You’d be remiss in your duties if you didn’t inspect all of it!
