Side Effects

On the picket line, some dogs dig a small indention in the ground to sleep in.

Cheesewhiz considers her digging to be more of a work of art.

Let's just say she really gets into her work.

That smile says it all.

Her neighbor, Q-Tip, is not as impressed.

As all of the debris comes flying in his direction.

Sort of a problem when you have an all-white coat. Well, a formerly all-white coat.

    Poor guy!! I dread the day I’ll be dealing with that problem with Chrome lol. Especially since Faran taught him playing in the pond is fun hehe.

    Cheoah is a Terra Forming Artiste! The rest of the Herd should be more respectful of her “inner muse.”

    So…how do you give a Sibe a bath in an RV? They don’t have tubs, do they? Just a shower, I assume.

    An allegedly all-white coat!

    Oh, and at least you’re at the beach! Q, a quick dip in the water will take care of that problem, I’m sure! 😛

    Cheez Whiz, I think you and Bunny are kindred spirits at heart! She’d dig to China if we’d let her. Blueberry has been less than amused on many occasions!

    Poor QTip… that’s how I usually look after a playful mud bath in the back yard!

    Cheezwiz, your digging skills will get you all kicked out of the RV park!!!! Poor Q, you need to be near someone who can give you a bit more respect!!!

    MOL – poor Q-Tip….he is going to have to find a new neighbor on the line. 🙂
