Would You Be Interested in Renting a Bull-Dozer?
Did you feel the earth move today? Around 10:00 CMT? If so, it was not your imagination.
Wonderbutt and Mrs. P.I.B. were racing around our backyard with zeal. Because this yard, cultivated by Cap’n Firepants, has a billion plants requiring close supervision of Wonderbutt in the interest of his safety (I think we have established that dog will eat anything), such occasions are rare.
Wonderbutt went through his usual pattern of trying to chew everything, and then zipping full steam ahead back and forth. During one of his zipping sessions, he cut through one of the Cap’n’s planting areas – and smacked his face full force into a tree trunk.
I should tell you that Wonderbutt is fine before I tell you that I have never seen Cap’n Firepants laugh so hard. He is, as a matter of fact, still laughing. He could barely contain himself as he went to check the tree to see if the collision had moved it. He swears Wonderbutt knocked it a couple of centimeters south.
As for Wonderbutt, he did what most of us do when we do something embarrassing; he sat there dazed for a moment – and then continued to tear through the brush right toward us so he could take out the people who had witnessed his humiliating moment.
