Rascal the Littlest Lumberjack

Rascal had some fun in the backyard going after a gopher. One night Bill took the pup outside for the last potty break and caught him half way down the gopher hole, with just the butt sticking out. When the gopher wasn't around, Rascal went after the roots and branches for entertainment, and we saw the results in days.

There used to be trees here.

There used to be bushes here and we had to replace them after Rascal uprooted them.

There used to be bushes here too.

Rascal waiting for his punishment.

On a positive note, we don't have a gopher problem any more. Apparently Rascal took care of all their food source, or in his view, he scared them out of town. Good boy, Rascal !

Don't forget the read Henry's puppy update from couple of weeks ago. They are best of friends, but Henry claims to have nothing to do with the lumbering.

That's quite a little gardener you have there. He'd get along well with my pack of landscapers.
