The Big Mess in the Back Yard

Sitting on my White Rabbit Rug

It started out like an ordinary day, just me and my white rabbit rug, an apple and some toys.

A big box

A big box

The box that the truck brought was ordinary enough, but it turned out to be a big surprise!

Who are those jokers?

Who are those jokers?

Then Sam and his friends Bobby and Brian came over to play in the mud and I got stuck on the deck. I think I’ll knock that box of vegetables into my wading pool to show who is in charge here.

Norman and friends

They let Norman and the chickens out but I had to stay behind the fence.

Absently biting a hose

See how boring this is? Practically all I have to play with is a piece of garden hose.

Corn time with chickens

Corn time with chickens

I got a feed bag to play with, too, I guess. Big Deal. I don’t really eat much cracked corn, but it is important for me to let the ducks know I am willing to share.

That's messy!

That’s messy!

What are they doing? I don’t think they know, either.

Quit looking at my butt!

Quit looking at my butt!

Sigh. I guess I’ll go back to bed.

Tasty!

Tasty!

I want to help! I could bite that thing!

It looks sort of like a pool, but not quite.

It looks sort of like a pool, but not quite.

Oh, this is starting to look familiar!

I am stuck on the deck again.

I am stuck on the deck again.

But the poor useless little capybara has to stay on the deck.

Not as easy as it looks.

Not as easy as it looks.

It’s getting dark but I can hear grunting and groaning.

The fun never ends.

The fun never ends.

So I wake up and it’s the next day but I am STILL stuck on the deck, and Sam, Bobby, and Brian are back!

No corn right now.

No corn right now.

Sometimes there is a piece of corn up here.

I want something!

I want something!

If there isn’t any more corn, can you please warm up the water in my wading pool? And get those vegetables out of there?

New steps!

New steps!

I’m not fenced in any more, but I am fenced OUT! How frustrating. I thought this was going to be MINE!

Get this outta here!

Get this outta here!

I don’t think this belongs here. It’s getting dark, but can we go to the front yard?

Looking for corn again.

Looking for corn again.

I wanted to go to the front yard because sometimes there is corn out here.

The greener grass.

The greener grass.

See, I was right! It might be a mess in the back yard, but the front yard is THE SAME!
