Life is short and Winter is over. The grass is growing, and the flowers are blooming, so I am giving the backyard to my Zoo of Animals. I know the bare spots will never fill in because three dogs are always running and chasing and tearing around. I am leaving the way back un-mowed from now on so Lillie the Cat has a jungle to hunt in, and has a place to pounce on the dogs from. I am letting Oliver dig all the holes he wants to, because that’s what Oliver loves. He digs the perfect sized holes for Lillie to hide in, and to use as a bunker to scope out birds and squirrels. Buster lives for chasing balls in the nooks and crannies of the yard, and Blanket surveys the world from the back steps. I hereby dedicate my backyard to Prince Niles Blanket, Buster Keaton Brown, Oliver Andrew Twist, and Miss Lillie Anne. My kingdom is yours. From this day forward – Dogs and Cats Rule!
