Black Market Dirt

Marcus:  Hey, I remember this photo.  I was a pup and you were teaching me how to dig a proper hole in the dirt, Sam.  We look pretty good together in sepia.  You'd look a lot better if you were wearing more dirt, though.  White is just begging for me to wipe muddy paws on it.

Sam:  The world does not revolve around dirt, Marcus!  I like being clean once in a while.  You should try it sometime.  Jan helped us do the photo in watercolor for Caturday Art.

Merci:  Here is the original photograph for comparison.  You look like father and son working on a project together.

Sam:  I am not his father!  Big brother ... reluctantly.

Buddy:  Here is a preview of tomorrow's black and white version.  You should be ashamed of yourself for teaching Marcus to dig a hole in the pen, Sam. 

Sam:  Me?  You're the one who started the hole.  I just took over when you finished.  I know if Jan hadn't interrupted us, I could have dug up something valuable. 

Marcus:  You mean like a big clump of dirt, Sam?

Sam:  Yes, exactly.  If you find a big enough clump of dirty dirt, you could sell it on the black market and become rich.  Then you could move into a home of your own and we could have some peace and quiet.

Merci:  Hey, that sounds like a good plan.  Buddy, do you want to help?  We're going to go dirt hunting so Marcus can move out.

Buddy:  No, you don't need my help.  I'll just take a nap and dream that when I wake up Marcus has moved into his new home.
