Out of the Poop Pile

It can be the tiniest thing to turn a day around. Lady was sad this morning. I don't know why. The cold, gray morning didn't help. Yesterday I showed you my favorite poop place. Lots of street dogs and house dogs go there as well, not to mention the cows. Oh and I forgot to take a snap of the pot plants I pee on. Anyway, Lady spotted some snapdragons! One plant was pretty tall and flowering. She left that one and took some small plants struggling to find the sun from underneath a large plant. She cheered right up. Sometimes pretty things can come from poop. She took the little plants home to replant in a pot. When we returned later this evening, someone had pulled up the big plant.
The neighborhood ladies came over this morning and started working on finishing their baskets. What a mess they made! And I think if I heard them call Lady "m'am" one more time I would have just barked. Oh wait, I did. They all needed her help. And they were so rude this morning. They wouldn't listen to Lady's story. I really wanted to hear about Queen Esther. One woman even started singing a song about Krishna. Another lady shut her up, and they made it through the story.  And they stayed for hours! Didn't help Lady's mood much, but a couple of nice phone calls, some messages, and a Skype date did. And of course a few dozen licks in the face. Oh, and chocolate.
Lady's poopy morning produced some pretty flowers, and pup kisses.

 I needed a little help with my basket.
 The mess makers.


  1. Goodness Marley, a house full of messy women that won't stop talking! Sounds like the normal to me :) I'm sorry that Lady had such a hard time today. It can be difficult somedays, and you just want to stay curled up in your warm little bed and wish the world away. But I know that you helped Lady out of her morning "funk" and got her back on the right path. I'm happy to hear that she rescued some of the flowers and is giving them a nice home to grow in. I'm sure you will keep a close eye on them too. Hope the flying monkey's don't get to them. Your basket is coming along nicely and I love the color. Bet it will be most beautiful once it is done.

    I just got done with my 2nd bath of the day and really wasn't too thrilled with it! You're right ~ I'm gonna end up a prune!

    I am sorry to hear about your Lady's not so good day. When Aunty has a bad day, I remind her that our Creator never promised us a rose garden, but He did promise us His faithfulness and love and mercy. She knows that but some days we need reminding. I find it interesting that the people get upset when you do your business in their little park, but they have cows wandering around doing their big business everywhere.

    Hang in there. Lady needs your support.
