Pond Star


Muscle-headed Link spends a majority of his time in the Summer House.  But now that spring has sprung, he likes to spend his days out by the pond, trying to catch fish or frogs.  He hasn’t caught any fish, but he has snagged a couple of frogs during his outdoor excursions. 

He’s created a little pocket in the plants surrounding the pond and spends his time just basking in the sun and waiting for his chance at snagging any wildlife that might cross his path. 

Ignore the excessive weeds and the new pond filter the hubby had set up but not buried as of yet (the weeds have since been removed, and the new pond filter buried and working wonderfully to make the pond crystal clear):


If you look towards the center of the shot, you can sort of see Link laying in his protective ‘pocket’.  Here, let’s move in closer:


Sometimes I think Link thinks he’s a dog – whenever either the hubby or I are working out in the backyard and Link happens to be out with us, he follows us around like a puppy, periodically meowing at us for attention.  Which he gets, of course.

Do you have any dorky pets?

  1. Does an assortment of stuffed critters and a pair of Uglyworms count as “dorky pets”?

    Happy WW!

  2. we have two gerbils. I think they actually are little personifications of my children. They act exactly like them – and NOT like gerbils! it’s crazy! 🙂

  3. You’ve got the same annoying spiky weed that I have. They drive me nuts. Your garden still looks wonderful, as usual. I did have a kitty who loved to sit in the garden. There is now a cat sculpture there in her memory. Have a great Wednesday!
