I went outside to take a few pictures of Forrest kicking the ball around and as I was walking towards him, I noticed mud on his back legs. When I asked him how did the mud get on him, he said, "I'm doing the running long jump in the garden!"
Since we have recieved so much rain in the last few weeks and haven't planted our garden yet, I thought by letting Forrest continue would help till the garden some more! So, I began taking pictures of as he was doing his running long jump. That lasted a few minutes and next he began doing handstands and before I knew it, he was running and flipping in the mud! Now as he was doing these acrobats, Benny, our standard poodle, was running along side of him through the garden. He is such a playful pup! Carhartt, being the "weenie" he is, stayed in the safe zone away from the garden. Forrest didn't like that much, so to help break the ice for Carhartt, and broke the ice for him! He put a coat of mud on him. And to help Carhartt not to feel like he was being picked on, he also gave Benny a coat of mud!
Sadie soon joined us in the fun, but she wasn't as dareful as Forrest, but she did manage to get just as dirty. After 30 minutes of Garden Olympics, it was time to clean up. You should have seen the tub after I washed the dogs....and the footprints coming from the backyard through the garage.... and the handprints on both the Firebird and Camaro.....and the mud on the sidewalk from Forrest and Sadie cleaning up.... and 140 pictures I took (don't you love digital?), I would definately say we had a blast! I give this experience a perfect score of 10!
