Lawn Care Service Needed

Queen Natasha has put in one request for her thirteenth birthday tomorrow – freshly cut grass. And she did it in her usual, subtle way.

P.S. – We are kidding. There is no way Queen Natasha has only one request for her birthday. She has more than that on any other day.

    Beautiful dog! My puppies love a freshly mowed lawn as well. My little ones won’t even go out to pee without my help when the grass gets over four inches.
