Dog vs Stick… BIG Stick

Well hi fur fam, thanks for stopping by!

So recently there has been a huge amount of noise in our backyard, and mum wouldn’t let us have full access to it because of that glorious “mess” as she called it; Soph and I just see a heavenly large pile of sticks.

We have had to cut down a major issue in our backyard, mum and dad both said it was too dangerous to keep and unfortunately our last standing poplar- over 100 feet tall I may add- that’s what mum said anyway, the thing was huge okay mum says 100 feet but that can’t be right, it must have been a billon Sophs tall it was SO big!

After a few days when the tree guys left, we got to run around and play fetch with some sticks. It was so much fun, Soph really didn’t like the noise when the guys were here though; I myself, have heard it before when we had to have the other one cut down. I’m not a big fan of the noise mind you but I don’t get too over worked about it, Soph did for the first day but then she was okay, she just didn’t understand what was going on at first.

“Holy Moly! Look at the size of that stick Bently!” ~ Sophee

Anyways, the issue mum and dad had with the tree was the branches- HUGE, tree sized branches- were falling off from the top. The last BIG storm we had in the fall, another huge branch fell and broke the neighbours fence. Mum said that was the last straw, that the tree is going to really hurt somebody, or worse.

So mum said they looked and looked for the perfect tree cutter person… oh what did she call him again… oh that’s right and Arborist. So they looked for a while, because it was so expensive it took some time to find the right one, some people even quoted $4,000 CAD; mum says it’s a very hard and dangerous job, that’s why it’s so expensive. But during the winter time “slow season” the arborist called it, he gave us an amazing deal at $1,400 CAD he even mulched all the .. “brush” mum called it and took it away- Soph and I were pretty peeved about that, he took our sticks! But at least there is lots left over, and he may have cut up the biggest stick, but at least he left us all of it’s pieces. How dare he, who takes a dog’s stick I say! Mum says not to be silly, we don’t want the mess, and I asked her what the heckle jeckle was messy about those wonderful sticks?!

But anyway, Soph and I will get over it I suppose, I just can’t wait to get at that big giant monster of a stick, oh boy oh boy, I can’t wait.

Well Fur fam, Thanks for joining us we missed you!

Sincerely,
