Handy Smushies

Over the weekend, we had a respite from the rain to do a little work on the ranch. More specifically, we did some work in the Smushie yard.

This is what part of our yard looks like thanks to Marshall using it as speedway. Notice the lack of grass?

The parents gave up trying to re-grow grass since it's such a heavily trafficked area. 

We never walk back and forth through here. Never. It's all Marshall's fault. 

At our request, the parents procured some bricks and went to work.

Pretty cool, huh?

It was a lot of hard work snoopervising the parents. 

Are you sure you're measuring accurately?

Gimme that, I'll show you how to do it.

Macaroni was making sure the new walkway is stuffie worthy...

The rain started up again before the parents could finish the Smushie walkway. As mush as we tried to convince them they wouldn't melt in the rain and to keep working, they weren't buying it. 

Hope to post completed pics soon!

  7. Good times at the Smushie Ranch!! Sir Humphries and Bella are wondering if The Smushies were paid in T-R-E-A-T-S for their hard work snoopervising!! p.s. That Mac sure loves his stuffies!!

  8. Looks great you guys! We need some of the same up here on our "ranch". We left you an award on our blog today!

  9. Wilma calls Smushies "Lammies" and her siblings are very particular as to which ones they like. Your doggies look really cute and would make great playmates for ours.

  10. It looks like a very nice job they are doing. Can't wait to see it finished!

  11. Your new walkway it going to look lovely when it's all done!

  12. Fancy. Now you won't have to get your paws muddy. Ewww. Try not to blame Marshall. He is like, HUGE and can't help the grass melting away beneath his behemoth paws. Nice snoopervising!


  13. We are glad the rain stopped and you were able to enjoy some fun times outside. You all did a great job helping with laying the bricks. Thanks for sharing the wonderful photos. Have a great weekend.
