The Cultivator

I recently got a new garden tool. After using it a few times, I am not sure it can compete with my old one.

First, I try to pull a weed. / Toby is off in his own world.

Then he he stops in order to see what I am doing.

First the left paw…

Then the right…

Then get out of the way, mom, it’s Toby’s turn to work!

What was so interesting about this experience was that Toby watched which weeds I was digging up, then he sought them out and removed them himself. I don’t know if he meant to be helpful or if he thought he was depriving me of the fun of clearing ground, but it sure was great having him around!

I’m a good digger. I know it.

Would you like to immortalize your own little digger? Then consider having his or her portrait done! Information on sizes and pricing is available on the Pet Portrait page at L Bowman Studios.



  1. Oh! HA! You go, Toby! You ARE a GREAT digger! Hey…could you come by and dig up our weeds for us?!?!

    Cooper makes a great supervisor and cheerleader…but he stops short of actually doing the job for me. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh, well, he (and his intelligence) is way above my pay grade! ๐Ÿ™‚
