Nature Friday

Happy Friday, folks! It's been one WEIRD week, that's fur sure. Momma is "working from home until further notice," which I thought would be grreat because she's home! But she spends the day sitting at our dining room table, frowning and tapping at her yaptop, instead of playing with ME! It's really weird. But at least I don't have to spend the day in my crate and can roam around with my doggy door open. And the best part, we've been taking extra walks!!

It's rained a lot, so not as many walks as Momma wanted, but it's still nice. We'll go out for longer times, including going up to visit my duck buddies at the pond.

"How's it going, duck buddies?"
"It's been quackers around here, Matilda!" 

Yeah, they said everything is a little nuts. Their pond is right across from a school, and it's been super quiet like it's summer even though it's not. They're not sure what's going on.

Of course, the drawback to walking by the pond is Momma is desperate to get a good picture of me by the pretty tree with the pond behind me. She tries every time. It's nice for her to keep having a goal to aim for, right?

 She can keep trying! BOL! Until next time, folks, try to enjoy nature and time with your pawrents.


  1. well she did get a pretty picture of YOU, just move a little next time to get more pond and tree.. happy days with more walks

  2. oh you saw a lot of food... or ducks and the main thing is to have the mama at home, for us this is the best ;O)

  3. Having our moms home with us is the bestest! Did your mom offer you a treat to get a good picture, Matilda? Make sure that she knows that we cannot work for free.

    Matilda, it seems to me you and mum are in a win-win situation right now. Grab the silver lining, I say!!! Hgus and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. It's tough to sit still when there are duckies around. I'd be running towards them! Good luck to your Mom with her work. And stay healthy!

  7. Yes, it's good to set one's human a goal, to keep them motivated. So far, in our neighbourhood too, dogs seem to be the main beneficiaries of the coronavirus...
    Toodle pip!

  9. Hmm. She might want to try stuffing some big treats in her pockets!!!
