Agnes: This is the best day ever!
Dave: Yes, you do look super happy.
Agnes: Sure am. Running around the yard helping you rake leaves is the best!
Dave: I’m not sure if you’re helping or redistributing the leaves.
Agnes: Helping. Always helping. I like to think of my job as comic relief and leaf mulcher.
Dave: I think leaf mulching is usually done by a machine.
Agnes: I prefer the mouth on method. Doing things the low tech way will save us from having intelligent machines as our overlords.
Agnes: Yes, really. That and I get to have some doggy floss.
Dave: I thought doggy floss was when you get tied up in your lead and have it stuck between your legs on a walk.
Agnes: Nope. That’s more like Doggy Beyonce.
Agnes: You know – “if you like it then put a string on it”
Dave: That’s not the lyrics.
Agnes: I agree, it’s totally not doggy floss at all. Doggy floss is more eating lots of leaves and grass and then having them stuck in your teeth.
Dave: With the ultimate goal being good dental hygiene?
Agnes: No. The ultimate goal is eating leaves, twigs and grass. Sometimes I don’t think you listen at all. Enough chit chat! Gotta get back to running and mulching!
By then end of the yard work session Agnes was the only dog left out on the lawn with me. The other two had been removed for excessive leaf mulching (Bruno), and getting into the compost bin debris (Eva). I think Agnes managed to do just the right amount of mulching – enough to get doggy floss but not too much that she needed to be put back on the deck.
