Rob is digging our fish pond by hand. The ground is very rocky here and it's slow, difficult digging. He sometimes gets up early and goes out to dig before it gets too hot and lately he's been digging just before dark when it's a little cooler. All the dogs go with him and help, but Morgan is the most faithful. The others go off to play ball or chase each other, but Morgan keeps on task.
Tonight I put the others in and went to check on the digging. Here's what I found. Rob sat down to take a break and Morgan moved over next to him.
She stays by him until he's finished for the night, then follows him inside.
He says that she occasionally digs along with him, but most of the time she either lies in the dirt or sits on a rock to watch.
Note the dirty feet.
She's always on the alert for anyone approaching.
The neighbors had just driven into their driveway and she had to greet them.
She loves being with Rob and helping him with whatever job he's doing.
When they finished in the pond, we did some work on the library. There will be sliding doors under the window seat so tonight we installed the hardware. And Morgan was there watching.
In the morning she'll be rewarded with a trip to the lake.
