Doc’s yard was a healthy place to live because the ecological system seemed to be in balance. Doc made a special garden area for Jack the rabbit and a pond for Mathew and Matilda. And, Margie the skunk was one of his main pest controllers. She bumped along in the yard every day looking for delightful tidbits of food. Some days she enjoyed a feast of a peapod, but her favorite foods were tomato worms, beetles, larvae, and grasshoppers. She especially loved grasshoppers when they were in season. She helped to keep Doc’s yard healthy. She was, in fact, a model for ecology. Everything had a purpose in Doc’s yard, and Margie’s job was to keep the yard and garden bug free.
However, there were two things that bothered Margie. The first thing was Duchess sneaking up on her. The second thing was Doc’s pond.
Duchess viewed Margie as a playmate and often wanted to get a game going. Often Margie would be minding her own skunk business and would not be able to determine that the fuzzy object headed her way was Duchess. She became frightened, arched her back, displayed her skunk business, and sprayed. Duchess wore Margie’s special brand of Skunk Perfume every time that happened! Even so, Duchess continued to invite play time. Even so, Margie was still bothered.
