Muddy Monday

It’s hard to top some of my Muddy Mondays, but this was an especially good one! We went to 1000 Acres (always a good spot for mud) on a glorious day. And it’s only early January AND in the Pacific Northwest where it’s suppose to rain all winter. Sort of a weird year so far. The sky was blue and it was almost shirt-sleeve weather. At least for the humans. Personally, I’ve been working on getting rid of some of my coat for the past couple of weeks! I guess that’s why Mom is sweeping so much….

When we first got there, I’m ready. Look out–let the herding begin!! But, I digress. I know you are really wanting to know how muddy I got. It doesn’t take a big mud-puddle. No sirree.

I haven’t quite figured out why I love mud so much, but I thought a good wallow is the right way to go.And then a shake offOops, Mom. I didn’t mean to cover you too 🙂We headed for the Sandy River. It was so clear and clean and WET! Mom even got in and cleaned off her Sloggers (that’s her boots, in case you were wondering).I had another good shake off (don’t worry, I still had to have a bath this time).I hope you notice I created my very own rainbow!

And then, on the way back, we checked out the snow on Mt. Hood. I think all those snowboarders and skiers are not happy this year.

Nero, over at Nero’s Post and Patch awarded me the Collies Choice Award! Nero helps his Mom with her beautiful quilting (and much more) on a magical Greek island. We have loved this blog for a long time and it’s is well worth reading! This award was started by The Collies of The Meadow a really sweet and lovely blog about these gorgeous collies. There are no rules, just that the blog we award this to is a well written one, which frankly, is a whole lot of you!

So, since I can only pass this on to one of you, I would like to bestow this lovely award to my pal, Sophie.She’s a labradoodle that lives in Nova Scotia and loves the water and balls and running and lots of stuff I love too.

Enjoy!!
