|My job as supervisor is never done! Hey, I could use a little more water in my pool!|
If anyone would like a tunnel dug, please call me! I work for belly rubs and treats!
|Come here Mr. Ground Squirrel, I wanna say hello!|
Now digging like this is very exhausting work!
When I am not digging holes I am also keeping an eye on the various birds that have shown up this spring!

|Male Red Winged Black Bird|
He is a very talkative fellow as are all his friends!
|American Gold Finch|
We have been seeing quite a few of these at the feeder lately.

The typist and I have been going for lots of walks and she has started carrying a lint roller with her on these walks. Why you might ask?

Speaking of those ticks, this year we are using Nexgard as my flea/tick preventative. It has been amazing! This is the best product we have ever used to control ticks and we have so many ticks here. The peeps are still collecting the ticks they do find on me, themselves, wherever and putting them in an old pill bottle. A couple of those pill bottles have been dropped off at the vet's and the vet was sending them for testing. Now how do you test a tick? I don't really know, but apparently they are getting tested for Lyme disease. Supposedly we don't have the tick that carries the Lyme virus in Saskatchewan yet, but the ticks are being tested just to be sure.
As always we are having some beautiful sunsets.

|Take care all!|
