Feet of (Red) Clay

Digging? Nope, haven’t been digging. What makes you ask?

We don’t have this red clay at home.  Makes the detection task MUCH easier.  In order to identify the digging culprit at the house, the offender must REALLY get into it.  Want evidence?  Say from August of 2005 – a little flashback of the all time innocent look?

Digging? Nope, haven't been digging. What makes you ask?

Miss Kiska has apparently been listening to her mentor all of these years.

    Digging in the dirt is great fun! Sometimes we even take a bite.

    Hee hee… I love the dirt socks you are wearing! That reminds me the fact that I haven’t done digging in the garden for a while.

    I am glad that you liked my photo!

    Love,

    I got caught today. The brown tongue and dirty nose always gives me away.

    My mom is shuddering for some reason. I don’t know why.

    Hahaha, that is priceless. We have red clay around here. Makes it very difficult for my very white dog to get away with digging, though she still maintains the innocent look even when she’s caught in the act.

    No! Not Princess Kiska…she didn’t do it, someone must have put the clay dirt on her feet while she slept. Look at her innocent face!! ^_^

    Now that is funny! Wasn’t me, I swear…

    Well Hu-dad, I don’t see any actual digging going on, so I have no idea what you’re talking about.

    Caught red pawed?

    Some pup here gets the red feet from the freshly laid mulch, and then the brown ones from her gardening work:)

    we just caught our husky on video this morning, butt up, head and front legs below the surface… yup, this time we have hard evidence.

    Kiska must have been SOOOOOO worn out from her walks that she was khompletely unaware that the skhwirrels were framing her?

    Red clay is awful to get off — i learnt my lesson when letting Dante frolick around in a red clay track in the rain one evening, NEVER AGAIN lol I can only imagine trying to get red clay off a thick coated dog! Good thing it’s only on the paws!

    We believe woo, Miss Kiska. Not sure if we believe Natasha, but, okay- who are we to question the Queen?

    I love Miss Kiska’s innocent look. She is definitely not guilty : )

  24. Houndstooth on May 24, 2010 at 8:15 am

    Oh, Kiska! I think you were framed by a certain evil queen!

  25. Homer on May 24, 2010 at 4:48 am

    Ha Ha! Your guilty look gave yourself away!

    Love,

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
