My attempt to move from Southern California and create a happy and sustainable urban homestead in North Dakota, with some musings on life with deaf dogs, a gluten free spouse, and the occasional mischievous garden gnome. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy.

Muddy Dogs

I think these pictures pretty much speak for themselves.  The backyard is a mess with melting snow and ice and mud, it's just a soggy soup everywhere.  The dogs picked today to have an epic tear around session out there.

Shaak Ti had to look away from the camera, she was so ashamed at how muddy she got.
It was harder to capture how muddy the puppy was, I had to wrangle her while shooting the pictures, otherwise she licks the camera.  This doesn't make for good pictures.
Then as I was wrestling with her to dry her off and clean her up, she rolled over and showed off her muddy, filthy tummy and undercarriage.

Ohhhh, you get my pity. Our back "yard" is one giant clay swamp right now, and Rory doesn't understand why we don't like her to roll around in it. We're such meanies.

I feel your pain Sara. At least Rory can hide the mud better in his luxurious dark coat. Perhaps we shall both pray for warm(er) and dry weather to help combat this muddy menace.
