“There is something down there and I WILL get it! I will not stand for vermin in my yard!”
“Sure! Here you go!”
“…. Very funny.”
Petal may be excellent at raking and washing dishes, but she’s no help at all when it comes to digging.
This is her idea of digging:
She paws very lightly at the dirt.
Can’t risk getting dirt in her nails!
Don’t you worry, Petal, I took pictures of you, too!
How could I deny you after you tried to eat my camera? You were being so helpful— of course I took pictures!
I mean look at this! Here you are, working tirelessly, to pull that little tiny bit of grass out of the ground!
Oh… You were just hungry?
Well, okay. But let’s not forget that time you so helpfully pointed out the obvious!
“Ella, you have dirt on your head. And face.”
“Gee, Petal, I wonder how that happened!”
“Are you being sarcastic?! I’m telling!”
That was helpful!
You were more helpful than that?
Oh! That’s right! You did finally get the hang of the whole digging thing, eventually.
Digging is just more Ella’s thing.
