We went out of town for Labor Day weekend (I'll post about that another time) When we leave, we have this little arrangement for our dogs. They get enclosed in the back part of our kitchen and then have a dog door opening into our backyard so they have access to exercise and potty. We are always a little leery about doing this because with the 2 of them together, without supervision, who knows what trouble they might get into. But in the name of saving money and the sanity of others, the arrangement seems to be the best option we have at present.
This time when we got back I looked out the back window and noticed 2 watermelon on our trampoline. Now, I know the dogs have been enjoying our garden this year more than we have been able to, due to the fact that they don't mind green tomatoes or unripe cantaloupe. BUT WATERMELON???? How on earth? Were they really able to get a whole watermelon (not to mention 2) ON the trampoline? After quickly ruling out all other possible explanations and realizing that there were teeth marks in the watermelon and muddy paw prints on the tramp, Dumb and Dumber got the credit they were seeking as the ones responsible for the large green fruit placed 3 feet off the ground, with no opposable thumbs and only sheer mischief as a motive.
I thought it was quite humorous until I went out, wondering about the rest of the garden...... Let's just say I'm not ready to talk about it yet.
