It's been pretty nice the last couple of days (after a Saturday full of fog and cold) such is the joy of living in the mountains!
Our dog has assigned herself to an official duty.
Every morning after breakfast, she and the DH take the bucket from the kitchen out to the compost bin (she'll sit at the back door and wait for him to come from the kitchen with it).
Later in the day she'll go out from time to time and make sure no squirrels are helping themselves to any "tasty treats" that she can't get to.
It's good for a labrador to be busy -- it keeps them out of trouble!
