For some reason, Sophie is tied to me at the hip! She is often a very "needy" doodle...she wants love and LOTS of it especially if she is in the house. However, if she is outside she loves to roam around the farm. She has a fenced in back yard, but being outside of her fence is her very favorite. She adores being able to sniff under the pine trees and around the farm buildings. EAU de PEW is her favorite; what self respecting doodle would turn down the chance to roll in something stinky? As a result, she isn't given much independence outside her fence. This morning she checked out the pumpkins. My VFF decided he wanted to plant pumpkins this year. We ended up with 47 mounds containing 7 different varieties. Yep. It was a big patch...I was okay with it because it meant a bit less mowing! We picked them a couple of weeks ago and have shared them with family and friends. I have a tote full of the mini pumpkins set aside for my oldest son. He is planning to use them for an art project in his classroom. The top of the tote was filled with rain water so Sophie was able to enjoy a nice long drink. Water sitting on top of a tote or in a puddle on the ground must be worlds better than the water in her bowl!
Sophie and I wish you the very best! Happiest Friday to all!
