Pith Helmet

I decided I needed a Pith Helmet .
 One needs a Pith Helmet when out birding.
My person said it would be hard to find in my size. She would try to crochet one.
Out came the yarn and hook.
This is what she came up with. 
Doesn’t look like a Pith Helmet to me or Gator.
She said not to worry it wasn’t finished.
I climbed up on the table and tried it on.
Buddy thinks it looks like a ladies sun hat.
Gator just shakes his head.
My person takes the hat felts it , tea dyes it to get the color she wants then brings it back.
Looking a little better.
She seals it with fabric Mod Podge to make it waterproof.
She adds a chin strap. I try it on. 
Not bad. It will work.
My person isn’t happy with it. She is working to see if it can be improved.
Will let you now how that goes.


I ask my person for more rocks. 
Today she gave us water instead. 
We placed the rocks we have around it to make a pond.
Buddy and I climb up the rocks  with the water below,
It’s a hard climb for a dog with short legs.
We made it.
 Let’s rest Buddy.
Hey it’s Gator Gates!
 Guess he found the water before we did,
Looks like Gates is happy to have water.


This is what I got for Christmas. A bunch of rocks.
You may think I was naughty. Who gets a pile of rocks for Christmas?
They are the best present ever!
You can place rocks however you want . 
I’m sitting high on top . I can look down on everything.
See Buddy down below?
We both hide between our rocks.
I love my present. Buddy does too.
The only problem we need more of them.
