Sugar was always keeping her family company. Somehow there was always a dog-friendly adventure in store, and I don't know another dog that was as inseparable from her people.
In Toby's case that sometimes means supervising us while we do our chores. Some are bigger than others!
This weekend's chore was a whopper. Ted had 10 yards of mulch delivered. A small mountain appeared in the driveway yesterday. I procrastinated by taking some "before" pictures. Soon, though, I'd be on my hands and knees, spreading mulch carefully around each tree and flower.
Eight hours later we called it a day. We were almost done but just too tired to finish up. This morning we put our filthy work clothes back on. Thankfully, in about 1 1/2 hours we were done.
It can be beautiful to work very hard and then enjoy the benefits of your labor for months to come. After a shower, I took some "after" photos.

That's what Sugar and her family did, and were so generous to share it with us all.
