Muddy Monday–3/11

Well, you knew it had to happen. After all, there’s mud EVERYWHERE!

How do you like my mud beard? Pretty neat, huh?Sage with mud beard ©

Many of you ask about a bath afterwards. Sometimes that happens, but Mom’s pretty sneaky sometimes. I often get my bath by swimming in a clean pond not too far from this mud-hole (which, by the way, is my fave). This time, I fell down on my job of retrieving a lost ball, so she found a stick and threw it many times out into the pond. Of course, I play along with her strategy, because not only do I get rid of the mud, but even the stink comes off! And I don’t have to have a bath.


And bringing it back is a cinch…I even had help!

Then, today of all days (since it’s Muddy Monday), my bud Oz over at Oz the Terrier wrote a limerick about me! You should go visit Oz…March is limerick month over at his site and he’s got some good ones! Thanks, Oz!!

It goes like this:

There once was a mix of Collie and Kelpie
who obviously needed some help-y.
Loved to wallow in mud
and become covered in crud
then during baths got whiny and yelp-y.

  1. Wow, Sage, that mud beard makes you look like a cast member of The Hobbit! I think you’ve found your Halloween costume!

  3. Ok, I am seriously jealous! I love to get totally muddy! Looks like a super mud place you found there and I don’t mind that sneaky mom bath thing either…


  4. You would have loved my back yard this morning. It was one huge mud puddle, so in your honor I ran around “like a crazy dog,” as my mommy says, and returned to the door wet and dirty. It was such fun, until I had to be cleaned off. Wish I could have done the pond bath like you!


  5. Heh. That’s a great limerick. 🙂 Mama should carry a bar of Ivory soap this time of year. It’s pure, it floats, And it’s easy to use in the pond.
