Pickle goes to Africa....almost.

image Pickle has been enjoying watching TV lately; in particular the BBC's "Last Chance to See" series, about endangered animals.
image Later, he stared out the window, gloomily, thinking how exciting it would be to be a whale or a gorilla or a rhinoceros.... life would be much more exciting in the wild than in his garden...
 image .... so he attacked the last remains of his cane basket....making out he was wrestling a lion or fighting off sharks...
 image .... until he had another idea.... better than all the others....
image This idea required some serious gardening in a newly watered vegetable bed
image image
But no matter how hard he dug, no matter how much he tried, he could not quite cover himself in enough mud to feel like a real hippopotamus.... but he'd had a lot of fun trying! image

Hi Kate,
I cannot wait to shoe my grandson these photos. We often play our Pickle run around the garden game. n We will be able to play pickles, sticks his tail in the air digs in the mud game.

Ours is a much better dog. He went to Mass the other day! I only found out when a passing nun told me all about it.
