Getting Ready for an RV Ride

We had a terrific weekend RVing at Big Ridge State Park even though weather was not always cooperative.  After some good rains overnight Saturday, we took advantage of a break in the weather to take a good Sunday morning walk.  Then, the Herd hung out on the picket line while the humans were getting things ready in the RV.

With everything loaded, The Herd took one last bathroom break and loaded up for the ride home.  Imagine the humans’ surprise when they went to bring Cheoah in and saw this (feel free to click on the picture to enlarge to get the full effect):

ready for fun

I have done everything I can to make the ride home fun.

    Mud bath, Cheoah is so smart. She knows that some humans pay to get mud bath for beauty reasons but she gets it all free. So considerate of Cheoah to save $$ for hum-dad.

    Now she deserves a treat!

    But you had to smile at that happy face no matter what! 😉

    Just look at that happy face!

    Nice work! The humans would have quickly forgotten about their vacation if you hadn’t brought a little bit of the trip home with you! Besides, your humans should know better than to leave you alone in the mud by now.

    That is one lovely job of mud decoration! Wow! I bow to your talents, Cheoah!

    Krystal the Schneagle says *that* took talent! It’s amazing when combined with the shedding (I assume) that looks like someone shaved her!

    Hmmm…looks like someone was either trying to give herself a mud bath or just bring home a little bit of nature! BOL

Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
