The Dog That Plants Potatoes

Once upon a time there was a dog named Java.

She loved to dig. A few months ago, Java kept bringing potato chunks to her owners doorstep and leaving them there. At first her owners thought they were the potatoes they just recently planted. But, they weren't purple, they were red. Soon, her owners realized that she was getting them from the compost pile and so they let her be. Java, being the smart dog that she is, decided to help plant the potatoes. So she selected a good chunk of potato and put it right by the downspout of the gutters. She figured since her owners wouldn't know it was there, at least it would get water. A few weeks ago, her owners noticed a potato plant that was very far away from all the potatoes they had planted. And the potato plant was thriving! After pondering the situation, the only conclusion they could form was that Java planted it there. A few days ago they harvested those potatoes. They were pretty small, perfect for a stew. Of course they shared the stew with Java, who actually did all the work. The End.

PS...now the owners are trying to get Java to pull the weeds in the garden.

Excellent story, Leez :) That is hilarious! I got a good laugh out of this one! It's nice to hear dog stories where they're being helpful.... I will make sure to pass this onto Dex. ;)

PS. You should totally share this with your class. Maybe you could even bring Java in for show and tell :D
