Can it be a mere coincidence? But my cool new Fur Friends from cooler climates have been panting and wagging their tails for cooler weather in Dog Woods. They must be breathing and wagging REALLY hard!! Because it’s actually a little cooler today! I bark you not
Talk about effective Canine Weather Intervention! Arroooo!!
On the downside however, there's recently been a lingering smell of burning in the air. In fact it's actually quite hazey - even in Dog Wood's green environment. It's no surprise, the Big Chief's off sneezing - again! Although she can't smell as well as this TOP DOG, her nose is able to detect the minutest change of air pressure, pollutants and humidity. In her flurry of sneezes she informs me that our 'regional neighbours are burning again!'. Something about their annual practices of 'slashing and burning' to clear land for next season's planting ...? I daresay, its not very healthy ... judging from the way the Big Chief is reacting to levels of pollutants in the air.
What strange agricultural methods these Humans practice ... why can't they just dig up the place and chew up any plants/trees of fancy - like we Canine's do?! If only Humans would give our method's a chance. They'd soon discover for themselves how fun and environmentally friendly the Canine methods are!
Even Big Chief's taken to our methods - she's been chewing and digging up her garden too! Though she insists it's called PRUNING, RE-POTTING and RE-PLANTING ... but it sure looks the same to me, though she uses gardening tools (nice and chewy too!) instead of her 'paws'.
Although my Pack, Fur Kids and I simply cannot understand why the Chief doesn't quite appreciate it when we try to help out with the chewing and digging! :p
