Dillon, day 153 of my life in DC!

Saturday, 1 March 2017Summer is in the air, at least for one more day. This morning it is was beautiful outside, so Micky and I were out there right after breakfast and didn’t come in until Micky ruined it for us. As usual, I was playing ball and chasing squirrels. (Yes, I can play ball by myself.) Micky participated in the squirrel chasing a bit, but spent most of the time snoozing in the sun. That is, until she decided to redecorate the landscape.
Have you ever had one of those days when you’re just chilling in the leaves, getting some sun and all of a sudden a feeling comes over you that makes you just have to kill something? That’s exactly what happened to Micky! She was snoozing up against the fence, in the sun and nobody was paying much attention to her. Then, as if the voices in her head were talking to her, she jumped up and started digging right where she had been sitting.
This got all sorts of attention. It wasn’t that anyone was upset, but when she starts digging, it usually means there’s a snack moving around under the ground. So, we watched… and watched. She had a pretty good hole going and was really into it. I wasn’t sure I understood what was going on, but I tried to help. I grabbed some of the twigs and vines to get them out of her way. Unfortunately, we never did find anything to eat in there.
When Micky was done digging, we all headed for the door. This was when the sh*t hit the fan. Mom looked at Micky’s feet and our time outside came to an end. Micky’s feet were caked in mud. Mom declared that Micky was going straight to the bath. Oops, too much fun. I guess what they say is true. “Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.” I guess everything worked out okay though. Micky was starting to stink anyway.
