If you’ve been reading, my life as a dog has changed recently. I’m a mountain dog. I used to be a boat dog. Mountains dogs are touch, rugged creatures who protect their humans from all kinds of dangers. Yup, that’s me. Tough guy. The only drawback . . . I get put to work.
September has arrived along with cold temperatures. I love the cold. On the boat, I was usually too hot. Now I hang out outside and enjoy the cool temps.
But just so you don’t get the wrong impression, I’m a working dog.
My human, Matt, collects wood – this is hard work involving axes and saws and other tools I’ve never seen before.
Then he chops the wood. I think he uses a splitter.
My job is also hard work. I get the kindling ready.
The next steps boggles my mind. Look what they do with the wood.
These humans are crazy. It’s fab being cold and what do they do? They heat up the house, so I head outside and enjoy my deck.

Too bad they don’t have a nice furry coat on them. Their skin is so bare no wonder they are cold.
I’ll buy them a fur coat, or they can make one next time Kristina grooms me. Then we won’t need the fire.
Glad you are able to help get the kindling wood ready for the fire. When it gets a lot colder outside, you’ll be happy about the fire.
Have fun being your sweet tough mountain dog self.
Colder? No one mentioned it might get colder!
The cold will soon get cold enough to please Sir Farley…Me, I’m staying in the house where it is warm, Love Cat
Sir Farley, I’m so flattered. I must be special now that I’m a mountain dog.
Farley, once the snow starts flying you’ll understand why your humans burn wood!
Snow? No one said anything about snow! This doesn’t sound good.
