There are many reasons to have dogs on an acreage, but my favorite is the contant reminder or inspiration that time for play is essential. Not that Jake is playing in this photo, but his paced droppings of sticks and balls near my dismanteled mower deck were the motivation I needed to grab the camera and join him in the field.
Yep, the mower deck broke. Kind of bad timing because the grass is out of control already. I swear grass did not grow this well last year. Someone has been fertilizing without my knowledge. It isn’t terribly broken, but it does need some replacement parts. That will take time, and the grass will keep growing. As will all the pretty dandelions. They really are kind of attractive.
