Ho Ho and I have just been informed by Mum that we have achieved a new record for production of 'little gifts' left on the lawn each day. Apparently production is up by a considerable amount.
We are always pleased to be responsible for something worthy of praise, given that we so often seem to be in disgrace, but we feel, on this occasion that some of the credit must go to Mum and Dad. After all, if it were not for the quality and quantity of the yummy food we are served, production could not have reached reach the levels it has.
Having accompanied Mum on her patrol around the backyard today, it is my opinion that our production isn't really any more than usual. Methinks that Mum has been slack in her collection efforts because of the recent spate of rainy days.
Incidentally, I have yet to figure out what it is that motivates our humans to be so diligent in gathering up all these 'little gifts'. Mum puts them all into a plastic bag, wearing rubber gloves while she does so, (probably doesn't want to damage them), and then takes the bag somewhere. I don't know where she takes them but the collection must be pretty big by now. We are nearly six years old. That's a lot of collecting and a lot of 'little gifts'.
It is a puzzlement to me.
