photo a day: June 6

I have a ton of potted herbs on the front porch and whenever I go outside to water them, Maisy Bleu comes with me. She is my little freckle-faced helper. 

She is very good at gardening, as long as gardening means that she can climb on the porch-chair footrest to creep on the neighbors or perch at the top of the steps to make sure nothing vicious sneaks up on me. Tonight while we were outside a woman walked by with her dog and Maisy did not bark, run down the stairs, or try to leave my side at all. She is the very best puppy in the entire world, even if she ate another dog's poop on our walk this morning and then licked me with that same tongue this afternoon.
