Fresh Cut Grass

As long-time readers know, we are always griping that the hu-dad needs to mow Sibe Quentin more often. We knew something was up when we got bully sticks in our crates (something about open gates and us – shrug) and heard the tractor crank up. When we emerged from our crates, we discovered we had fresh cut grass.

grass has been cut

Whoa! Our tall grass has been cut.

good on the feety-feet

Does fresh cut grass not feel great on your feety-feet? (And notice that the hu-dad spent a long time brushing my fur-blowing coat yesterday, but it stills look bad).

better to sit

Feels better to sit on, too!

best hunting time

Best time for hunting critters in the yard is right after a mowing!

picnic table

cut grass

My perch does seem to be covered in cut grass. Guess we need to teach the hu-dad how to use a broom.

    Mom sez: Fresh cut grass also makes the “deposits” a little easier to spot, too, before the humans step in them.
