Topaz is my gardening buddy, an almost 10 year old cocker spaniel/poodle cross. He sits beside me as I work or will go and lay in the shade under a tree.
He didn't mind me spiking his hair one day after coming in from the rain.
Or, sometimes when Topaz is bored with the gardening, he'll sit by the pond and watch the fish.
I'm linking with Macro Monday at Lisa's Chaos.
