Flapjack and Flipper, pointer mixes

Flapjack and Flipper are active in the green community. They have spent the last few weeks consuming food freshly dumped into the neighbor's compost heap (They love to recycle!). Their largest project, however, involves aerating the backyard with their innovative digging and tilling techniques. With their hard work - hours running and digging every day - we hope to plant several trees and replant some grass next year (They love green plants!). Equally impressive has been their destruction of their plastic bags for cleaning up after walks - they insisted we reuse plastic bags from the grocery store.
