Amazing Yard “Art”

I need to share this with you. I know that it will trigger some of your “sensitive gag reflexes” (http://www.jennyonthespot.com/). But, my dog just amazes me. I am fairly new at pet ownership, in that my brother Paul and I did not grow up with pets. Sure, we picked up strays and tried to keep them, but my parents were just not havin’ it. So when I became an adult and had my own home, I thought it would be great to get a dog… since I am not a cat person.

We rescued this really sweet lab we named “Max”. He is pretty easy going….. after he greets you with a hug round the neck and wet kisses. He is an indoor dog. We love him.

Have I mentioned that I am attempting to home school my son this year? I digress… that is another story altogether.

So, I was outside scooping poop on Monday. I could see on my lawn a strangely beautiful and unusual display of colors. There were flecks of ultra blue, violet red, unmellow yellow and burnt sienna. As I rubbed my eyes trying to be sure of what I was seeing, the thought came to me “had magical ferries dusted my lawn with a rainbow of pixie dust?” Oh, the beauty! I had never seen anything like it before. As I went in to get a closer look, I discovered that those “magical ferries” were my dog Max. You see, a couple of days earlier, Max ate a box of my son’s Crayola Crayons. This was the result.

There was a lot more than this… and even larger “yard art”. He is an 80 pound dog after all. I just could not bring myself to “arrange” them for this picture.

So, there you have it, my dog poops rainbows! Maybe I should contact “America’s got talent”!
