1/2 Ruined Garden

The sky was darkly overcast, the wind was high and angry. Along the horizon, hung a storm-cloud blacker than me. Overhead the clouds were driven at every direction, and the nature seemed bestirring herself for some wild work. At length the heavy raindrops began to fall, one by one.
~ Flooding lawn ~

We had a minor storm yesterday. Not exactly the storm which had the capability to blow off your roof or even blown me across the Atlantic Ocean, but it did manage to collapse Mr. Grandpa's beloved flower pots.

~ Flower pots collapsed ~
~ Shattered pot ~

Mr. Naked Brother's bicycle also suffered the ill-fate of being crashed down below the plants. Poor him.

While all these were taking place, Pacco de Mongrel was snoozing in the living hall, dreaming that she was chasing bunnies at the ever spreading lawn, oblivious of what had just happened.

You got the right idea girl!
But I'm so sorry the storm wreaked havoc on your backyard!


Maggie & Mitch said...

How sad! The garden is just beautiful! Poor bicycle!
My brown bone is a nylabone, Pacco. I "think" it's chocolate flavor but I'm not positive! Mom says it doesn't smell like chocolate to her!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

You are lucky to sleep through the wind. It scares us and makes us pace. Hopefully it won't be too difficult to repair the damage to the garden.

Really sorry about the flower pots, my Jeannie gets upset about those things.

Your Grandpas garden looked so pretty and green too.

But I loved the last relaxing picture of you Pacco, my sweetheart, so relaxed and in the dream world......draming of bunnies.

Happy dreams, sweetheart girl!

Love and licks from rainy but very cold Scotland xxxxx Marvin xxxx

Thor said...

Hey Pacco! You made well in being sleeping during the storm dreaming with the bunnies!


Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Pacco,
We're glad no one was hurt in the winds, but too bad about your grandpa's nice pots & plants. His plants are bootiful. Nice picture of you sleeping, the green colors show off your bootiful black fur.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Joe Stains said...

I would have been REALLY scared. Thank dog nobody or no dog was hurt!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Pacco!
I feel so sorry for your grandpa's plants. Sure it was a scary wind!
Glad to see you were not bothered by it!
Kisses and hugs

Hi Pacco! goodness what a storm! the description at the beinning was pawed so beeuutifully like right out of a book! Sorry about your familees garden but good thing it didn't blow you away! All that wind and the hanger is still there, go figure?! You look so relaxed too, hope you had pawsome dreams.

You really came away with a haul at K9 day congratulations! Your Ms Owners looks like she'd be waggin her tail if she wasn't sitting. We have never had a treat like that, we're gonna have to beg mommy that would cheer us up while daddy is gone. You did a good Amber-Mae pose, paws up! Oh and your Mr Banks sure does have the longest tongue we've seen so far.

Your right we thought Pebbles was your puppy picture. Well it's isn't bad having a mini-me look at Ginger! That's why mom & dad adopted her cos she looked like mine & Sparky's offspring and she grew up to look like a mini-me! She loves to copydog me all the time. I act like I don't like it but I secretly do. Did you get any of Ms Owners treats, they sure looked good!!!

Well, we decided to stop moping and catch up on friendzees while dads gone. Congrats on your awards!

Love Licks & waggin TX tails

Bummer about grandpa's plants and your naked brother's bicycle. It's nice, though, to be able to sleep so peacefully isn't it? You look like a sweet little angel pup there on the floor!

Goober love & smooches,
