Help us! said the bark of Copper Lucas Aspen, the inquisitive mixed breed who’s been with us for nine years. Looking up from my laptop and in the direction of the dogs, their body language said it all. Continuing to watch, I clicked away.
We need you to help us get this stupid chipmunk out of the tree! said the brave dog with a lot of “tude.”
He’s climbed up the trunk and we can’t reach him, he continued.
For crying out loud, could you come give us a hand? said the cantankerous Lab~Pit mix.
(Let me interject here. Do you see how well behaved the wild woman is?)
Never mind, I’ll do it myself! said the brazen lad.
Does he know what he’s in for? said the spokesperson of the team continuing to EAT THE TREE!
One more thing…I did get up and go over to the tree, telling Copper and Moon that the chipmunk was up too high for Mommy to reach. They were not happy.
Ah, yes...another disappointing day in the country!
