There is nothing like the smell of a beautiful spring day! Look at me! Outside! For the first time this year! Of course Mom kept her eagle eye on me because of that mad dash I made last year where I ran around the neighbourhood and almost got hit by a van. Considering that, I'm lucky to see the blue sky at all...
Miss Binks and I were allowed to frollick in the grass in our pen. I got busy digging because it's not often my little paws really get to dig in anything substantial. I ripped through that grass and got down to the dirt. Then I flopped in it - it was nice and cool! But Mom had to give me a little brush off before I was allowed back in the house. Miss Binks decided that every blade of grass needed to be flat rather than upright. "These grassies are sticking up between my toesies and I don't like that! Stay flat, you grassies!" and with that she proceeded to flatten out all the grass within her reach.
Miss Binks loves to sniff the air. "Mmmmm, are those roses? I do believe they are. And perhaps some.....lilacs. Yes, definitely lilacs."
"I smell dirt."
*sigh* "That's because you're lying in it Fluffy! You'd better clean yourself up before snorgling with me or you will get my white Dolce & Gabunny track suit all dirty...."
It's nice to hear the sounds of spring first-hand - the birds chirping in the trees, the breeze blowing through the green, leafy branches, the buzz of the bees visiting our flowerbed and polinating future generations of flowers. Of course, it was all interrupted by Nutters and Butters screeching at us from the tree tops. "Hey! Fill up that squirrel feeder! Can't you see we emptied it yesterday? SHEESH!" They are so amusing the way they sit on their haunches and click and chatter at us, their tails rippling and vibrating in disgust and anger. They make Mom laugh, and I think that just angers them more.
