Hibernation Plan

Yes, it is still raining. We have dealt with 8 inches of rain in the last 10 days or so. Everything is soggy, muddy, and just miserable. Even the fun of playing in the mud is getting old. So we have hatched a brand new approach – the hibernation plan.

Is it still raining?

Still raining

I was just out there. Still raining.

And thus the only appropriate reaction is to curl up and check again in a while.

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.
