My husband and son love this time of year because it is the start of duck hunting season. They have been busy building carts to haul their decoys and using spray paint to camoflauge the cart and various blinds, including a huge cardboard box for my son to play with. Unfortunately the can of spray paint was left out…
Yesterday my son was playing outside in the backyard. He was playing with his tractors, dump trucks, and various digging equipment. He was very content playing with his toys, so I took advantage of this time to do some housework. I kept checking on him and all seemed to be fine. Major, our old lab, was out doing his thing – which at 13 years old is a lot of sleeping.
I was sweeping the kitchen floor and the two of them came up on the back porch. Major looked like this…
I asked my son what happened to Major??? He said that he fell in the dirt. This was some what believable because he isn’t very steady on his feet and has been falling more and more lately. There is some fresh dirt in the backyard because my husband ground a huge stump back there this last weekend. I thought there was probably more to the story but didn’t see the point in pressing the matter.
When my husband got home he also asked our son what happened to Major. We thought he might come out with the truth if asked again…he did and we both had to leave the room because we started laughing.
He said that he was camoflauging him because he didn’t want the ducks to see him 🙂
I would have loved to see how he did this – Major may be old but he isn’t small and he is still strong. I don’t know if he did it while he was sleeping??? Poor old man is now sporting a camoflauge mask. The cans of spray paint are now on one of the top shelves in the garage!
