Apple Time

July 6, 2009

I have a few minutes before Chase and I must leave for Intermittent Obedience Class.  . . . wonder what creative move he’ll make tonight?  I wanted to share this quick post before we leave.

My neighbor Melvin has a Granny Smith apple tree. A couple of the biggest branches hang over my patio. We’ve had a lot of wind and rain the past week so baby apples have been falling left and right. What’s a dog to do? No sheep to herd! No kids to play with! We didn’t get to go to the office!  The cats aren’t taunting us from atop the wall!

When I came home from work, this is what greeted me. I think it’s a Sphinx guarding the golden apples of Eden. Maybe it’s just my funny dog entertaining himself.

    OK—a few more and it will be time to bake Chase a pie! Yum…but watch out for tummy aches with too many green Grannys.
