I was out in the backyard with the dogs this afternoon when I noticed something shiny over in the grass. Upon closer examination I realized it was a torn up baggie of some sorts. Not wanting the dogs to consume what they had clearly already shredded I picked up the pieces. As I was down on the ground level I couldn't help but notice the mountain of dog poop nearby that one of the dogs had so nicely disposed of. I wasn't quite in the mood to pick up their poops right then so I gathered what was in my hand and went to throw it away.
The weather had been so pleasant today that I decided to walk around the yard with the dogs a bit before heading in for good. I meandered around the grass enjoying the sunshine warming my skin and the breeze blowing through my curls when I saw a butterfly out of the corner of my eye. I slowed my movement so as not to startle it and admired his orange colored wings fluttering in the breeze. Apparently the breeze was a mite too much for him at the moment and the butterfly stopped for a break. He landed on the mountain of poop!
I gasped in shock as I watched in horror as the orange butterfly sat directly on top of the poop pile and opened and closed his wings. Never in all my life have I seen a butterfly land on dog poop. Butterflies belong on trees, flowers and bushes.......not dog poop!
I could hardly believe what my eyes were seeing and leaned in for a closer look. That's when the butterfly launched itself off of the mountainous pile of dog poop and landed on my shirt. Pahhhh! Yuck.
What's this world coming to? LOL!
