Helpers

Today I was doing some work in the back yard.  Maggie and Jake were very interested in my activity and wanted to be involved.  I was digging up some old shrubs and roots with a pickaxe.  Each time I swung the pick and then pulled it out of the ground, they would push their noses into the hole and sniff the fresh dirt.  There must have been all kinds of really cool scents because they were fascinated.  Needless to say, this slowed down my progress considerably.

Eager to help me, they would dig at the spot where the pick had punctured the earth.  I doubt they were interested in removing the roots though.  I had to wait for them to satisfy their olfactory curiosity and lose interest before I could take another swing with the pick.

I didn’t mind, really.  The slow pace suited me, and I enjoyed watching their expressions as they tried to identify all the scents.  But it just smelled like dirt to me.
