Soggy Days

After a week of snowy weather, we have been in melt mode for the last couple of soggy days. And we get a few more days of snow this week, too, so it is just that time of year.

With all of the melting snow, of course, is plenty of mud and water everywhere. While the youngsters might be fine sitting in slush, not everyone is happy with it.

staying above the water.

Kiska claimed the chaise lounge so she could stay above the water.

Yes, Kiska has claimed the chaise lounge, one of the few dry spots outside at the moment. We all also hung out in Hu-dad’s study much of the day helping him with his work. Believe it or not, he didn’t even say thank you.

Funny, Hu-dad says I can be most helpful by playing outside.

    Mom sez: I can certainly see why Kiska would want to stay “above the water line” …….. I’d think that beautiful bushy tail of hers would be a soggy mess to contend with once it got soaking wet! Typhoon, well …… a four-legged disaster just looking for a place to happen, I’m sure that left to his own devices, he’ll find a place without too much trouble. Qannik and Frankie, ever the “peace-makers. Where were ‘Tasha and Cheoah when all this was taking place? (Top photo, looks like Frankie and Ty have found something interesting off in the trees somewhere).

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.
