Greta the Dirt Monster

Hello to all.

Greta aka the dirt monster had a busy weekend. She went walking around town and played in the water (and dirt).

She found that she can dig up the side of the lawn where it meets the driveway. I couldn't keep her away from it. Then she decided to roll in whatever was dead from where the rider lawnmower was sitting. :sick: After all the water and dirt, I decided she had enough and need to dry out on the back deck. But then she found her bowl of water that keep out there for her to play in. I tried to just rinse her off with the garden hose but found some green gooey stuff stuck to both sides of her face. I think it was the mysterious item under the lawnmower. So she had to have a quick bath which she didn't like. Here are some pictures for your enjoyment.

Greta and her big bro Jake. Notice Greta is more interested on what is on the ground.

Is Jake a german wirehaired pointer? They are both adorable.

Yes he is. That picture was taken before I groomed him. He is 6 years old and now is just starting to tolerate his baby sister.

Adorable!!

I'm sure Jake and Sammy would have a lot to talk about if they got together... putting up with little bother or sister is not easy I'm sure... :D

I don't mind my Cairn covered in dirt as long as what he did is fixable....I spent an entire day laying weed barrier on a new flower bed, put mulch down and planted flowers. By the end of the day, Barney successfully removed the weed barrier and dug several holes....

But I can't hold it against him because he was a very young boy at the time!! I think I am going to get him a baby pool and fill it with sand so he can dig to his heart's content!

All creatures great and small, the Lord God, He made them all!

Ours pulled up, inch by inch, foot by foot, almost an entire drip irrigation system. We used to find the most amazing poops, consisting almost entirely of small piles of 1/8 to 1/4-inch lengths of 1/8-in diameter tubing. They seemed to believe the tubing was some sort of black "drip jerky" or something. Once I realized they were eating the tubing I pulled the rest of the tubing. Xeriscaping's where it's at :P

Actually Cathy it's not a gate. It's a guard for the screen door. We had installed because Greta's big brother would run through the screen door at night whenever he "heard" something out on the deck. He has stopped doing that. But he sleeps in the master bedroom with my folks, where there is also a screen door w/a guard as well. He sleeps right next to the door and when he hears "something" knows how to hit the door handle just right to go and check out things.

I saw those at Lowes last week while I shopping for new screening.... for the screen door that Mett & Bratt decided impaired their view of the yard.... so they killed it!

I am installing mine next weekend. I am going to put it on the inside of the screen door since we have glass slats that open toward the outside.

So do you like yours? was it easy to install?

We like ours, we have one metal (in the picture) and one plastic (master bedroom). They were easy to install, just four screws I believe. It also helps protect the doors from our cats, since they like to climb the doors after bugs.
