Garden Duty

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. As you know, Mags and I are Working Breed pups and as such, we have duties all over Ao4 Headquarters. We even help out in the garden. I had an assignment the other morning to go out on patrol while Mom walked around the backyard gardens. She asked me to pose up in the Friendship Garden at one point, so ...
"Good boy, Raggi!  Sit and ... Ragnar?!?"
"How's this, M---HEY!  What's that?!?"

If you're not one of Mom's FaceBook friends (and if you aren't, you should be!), you may be wondering what I was staring at.  Check this out:

"Oh, hi."

A bunny!  In OUR yard!  The nerve.

Oh.  And I'm supposed to point out that in the pots behind me are some miniature sunflowers.  The Orange Hobbits are ready to pop open:

Orange Hobbit Sunflowers, ready to burst!

Whatever. As for me, I was ready to bust, too, but in a different way.

"Must not chase the bunny.  Must ... not ... chase ... the bunny.  Must.  Not.  Ch---"
"You're being a VERY good boy!!!"

It was VERY hard work!  VERY hard!  It took all my strength to resist giving chase to that bun -- but I also have a very strong desire to make my mom happy.

I kept my eye on that lil' bunny while I finished Garden Patrol  ...

"Yeah, and I KNOW you're the one who ate the sunflowers in the Wildflower Garden!!!"

The nerve of some bunnies!!!  Mags and I really have our work cut out for us!



  1. We do the same with the bunnies around our yard too, Ragnar. You sure have some good manners to not chase after that little bunny.

  2. LOL! well done! a perfect model of self discipline! well... and an avid Cookie Lover.
    your garden is so beautiful! xo
