A Dirty Job But Someone Has To Do It

Six dogs hanging out on a picket line in a campsite with the Hu-Dad in a rocking chair reading a book. How could any dog possibly create a problem in such a closely supervised situation? It is a dirty job, but someone has to do it.

Why are you looking at me, Hu-Dad?

Cheoah’s land excavation skills are well known and she is a big believer that the best outdoor bed is made a few inches below surface level.

I have a nose for dirty jobs.

Let’s just say that Cheoah really got into her work yesterday morning. What is a little dirt caked on your snout anyway when there is a dirty job to be tackled?

    Good job Cheoah! Someone has to get down and get dirty! And you even look adorable doing it?????

    I think so too, Cheoah – keep it up! (Sorry, Hu-dad.)
