Over at the Robin Siegismund Farm, Belle wants everyone to know she stays focused on her job, unlike her brother, Petey. Last week Robin and Daniel and the dogs went to pick up walnuts in the pasture. Petey soon tires of walnut picking and goes off to investigate a brush pile and wants Belle to come to see what he has found, all the barking and begging. But Belle, having been lectured of late on what her jobs are, didn’t go to see. So Petey will show Belle what fun she will miss; he goes into the brush pile after lots of barking, yapping and howling, he does come out with a big coon. Belle was proud of him, but she preferred to do her job helping with the walnuts. Walnuts are plentiful and nice the year.
