Helping Dad . . . or Not!

Today was a beautiful day, sunny and warm!  So dad decided to dig up the back yard and bury a drain pipe.  Water was draining into the yard from the melting snow on the roof and we kept having fun accidentally getting muddy.  So dad asked if we would help and we barked "Fur Sure!"  So we started off . . . 




"Hey Murphy, did you hear dad calling us?"

"I coulda swore I heard dad ask for help . . . "
"Dad, you want us to do somethin'?"










(Mom just threw this one in cuz the mountains looked pretty against blue sky.)








"Are we about done dad?  Me and Stanley are getting kinda tired."
"Hey Stan, let's finish this project up!"
"OK Murph, let's get 'er done!"










OK, all done . . . let's go in the house now!
Dad said we were a really big help!

For a couple of young pup you two sure do work HARD! I am not sure if your dad could have gotten it done with out you guys. I bet your salery was huge!! At least it should be, good help is hard to find.
Blessings,

Ahhhhhh now we know what the trip to Lowe's was all about!!
Murphy and Stanley having you two running about playing bitey face and your ears blowing in the wind was sure to make Dad's job go quicker.

We give all you men a A+ and the Photographer a high five for keeping up.
