Muddy Mondays

Muddy yard

One of the great pleasures of spring is finding a really muddy spot in the yard.

Muddy fur

And, of course, mud means you can get it all in your furs.


Frankie is doing a complete inspection of his muddy sister, Cheoah.


Inspection over, notice that Frankie moves back to his crate just in case dinner might be served early. The boy is an eternal optimist.


Cheoah sure looks pleased with her games of the day


And this happy close-up is a great chance to see that Cheoah has two parti-eyes. The left eye is half and half, and the right eye has just a dot of blue.

    Ayla sez: Cheoah just looks SOOOO pleased with herself, like she had a WONDERFUL time getting that muddy. Does she like having baths? Me ‘n Ice HATE baths.

    I think Titus and Cheoah would have a most fabulous time digging in the mud together!! He has a 2 foot crater going in our yard!

    Mud on face = beauty mask. Even when it’s on the paws.

    How do you cope with the mud? Wash? Let it dry & brush??

    BOL – we sure wish we had some mud to play in too! But we had to stay clean all weekend!
