Butter is the helpful yard worker. He loves to help you dig holes or in this case, dig up weeds.
Shadow and Butter are warm towel hogs. Butter becomes comotose as soon as he touches the warm laundry.
I think he's saying, Can I have some privacy?
Here Butter is after a long day of working in the yard.
This is what Butter does as soon as I get out of bed to get ready for work.
