It's Tuesday again . . .

. . .And the OP Pack is hard at work for Eduardo.

As you know, we live in the land of Oz. We were expecting lots of severe weather last night but, as often happens, the weather folks were wrong. All we got was lots of rain and wind with a little thunder and lightning. We were also hoping to see some of the munchkins, but when we were headed out for our walk yesterday, we found that we had had a visit from the "mulchkins". All the front landscapes have fresh red cedar mulch. Of course, the OP Pack had to get right down to work and snoopervise the job they had done.

Something is different here.

These pretty hyacinths opened up overnight and someone gave them a new blanket.

Mom, look, those mulchkins left some on this shrub - not a very neat job here.

Hey, I think there is something inside here.

OK, this looks pretty good, how are things on your side, Phantom?

I'm checking it out, give me a sec.

Mom, why did you let them cover up all the good smells?

Hey, Dakota, I think this little boy let his pup leave us some pee mail.

Looks like this little girl is trying to trick the birdie into eating the mulch.

I think I hear the bell for break time ringing.

Whatever, can we get this walk started?

Woos, the OP Pack

Oh my god... For us, not English-speakers... you make us work and think a lot.
What's the difference between munchkin and mulchkin?
Ok, now we now... But this is good, we want to learn...... You're wonderful.
Pretty "jacintos" (hyacinthus)

Looks like you have some digging in your future. Those flower beds are much too tidy.


Byron y Xinver said...

Hi again... We're happy your mom is interested in St. James' Way. Let us search for some information in English and we will send you the links. When you do something like this, you are touched forever. It was important to our Boss...

Tee said...

I don't suppose your momma would appreciate some canine landscaping?

Those mulching looks like it could do with a good dig ... ;)

"Mulchkins". Hee hee hee! I like that one!
Those hyacinths are beautiful, but what shines most is Dakota's beautiful smile! That third picture of her is the BEST!

The Thundering Herd said...

Glad your storm was not as rough as the A04.

And we think we do a good job of landscaping, but ours looks different for some reasons. More holes, less evenness - just like we like it.

P.S. - Our word of the day is "Leave." Ouch.

Joey said...

Dakota, you're the prettiest mulch inspector there is! Glad the storms missed you.

See ya!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

You are all doing a great job at sniffing out the signs of Spring.. Sure glad someone was nice enough to leave a bit of pee-mail..

Painter Pack said...

Woo all did a pawsome job! Can woo teach me how to inspect?

*may the force be with woo*

Tom and Tama-Chan said...

The contrast of the blue hyacinths against the pure white coat... Swoon!!!

By the way, our #1 walked part of the Compostela "camino" a few years ago. It's a wonderful journey.

Moco said...

It is good to see that you three have an eye for detail.

Lady Kaos said...

Thanks for visiting my blog!! Mom is doing great! I really like having her home all the time. I'm going to add you guys to my reader list!

Tom and Tama-Chan said...

PS: One of the great things about the Santiago "Camino" is that, if you're wiling to sum it, ie stay in pilgrim inns, often sharing rooms with anything from a few to many people, it's a really low-cost undertaking! And an amazing way to discover northern Spain.

Eduardo said...

Y'all are such hard workers! Keep up the great work!

Mochi and Mommy said...

I love that picture with Dakota smiling. She's so pretty!

Have you tried the mulch? It looks like something I would like to chew on!


Thor and Marco Polo and 3 Kats said...


We can't believe it - We think spring has come to your place in Kansas. Flowers blooming, green stuff!! It's just starting to turn green here. I bet you have wonderful smells after the long winter

Lorenza said...

We have never seen that mulching here but looks like it covers all the good things on the ground!
Good job supervising it!
Kisses and hugs

Suzuki said...

BOL Dakota! You look so surprised to see those flowers :)
Big licks to you

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

I bet that new mulch smelled good. Of course after a few visits from you pups, it will smell much better!
