The other day, PP ventured purposefully out into the garden with a spade.
I thought little of it, preoccupied as I was with work stuff.
She was quiet for quite a long time, which is unusual in itself.
After a few hours, she came back indoors and requested I come outside to view the result of her labours.
Coming upon such a scene, (and be honest now) what would be your immediate reaction?
Mine was to ask who she had, or was proposing, to bury. You must admit, it does look uncannily like a newly dug grave.
However, apparently it is our new vegetable patch, albeit a bit late in the season.
Since then a few days have passed. It has been mostly cold and rainy.
Until today, which has been lovely and sunny.
Which is why Small Dog has spent a lot of time outdoors.
Explorin' 'n that 'n everythin'.
And also might explain why she decided to try to exhume the 'body'
