Thursday This n That


Earlier in the week, we went to my favorite spot, 1000 acres. Construction was everywhere with trucks and more trucks working hard to ruin access to part of the park reconstruct a stream for salmon migration. They did their best to keep us dogs safe with fences blocking the temporary road for all those big trucks and they even waved when they went by. Fortunately, most of the meadows were left unscathed so I ran and ran. But you know what that means–I get H..O..T. And it hadn’t rained in days and days, so how was I supposed to cool off? No mud-puddles, no ponds, no water ANYWHERE. Well, except for the two rivers surrounding the park, but that was for later.

I explored a huge mound of dirt and rocks the construction people made

and….I FOUND IT!In the mud!

Well, Mom couldn’t believe it. How could I manage to find the only mud-puddle in the entire park?

I’m just talented that way…. 

So, off to the river we headed and…what did we find? All the trails were closed. WHAT??? Never fear–where there’s a will, there’s a way, at least that’s what they say. I certainly wasn’t going home like this, Mom said. So, we found our way to the river (around the construction) and voilà!The cleanup in the river

Clean up!!

A Toothbrush

A while back little ol’ me won something–a Zututh Toothbrush


–from Bocci’s Beef. Thanks, guys!!

 It’s one of these battery operated toothbrushes just for us dogs. So, I thought I’d take a look.Meeting the ZututhIt smelled OK and there were some good treats nearby. When I was through and had moved away, Mom turned it on. It made a funny noise and I took off for a hidey place. Mom said we have to work on it, which is what she’s doing. Me? The jury is still out. I do think it’s a wonderful product for us dogs and I’m going to really give it a try! We do have to have clean toofers, don’t we?


Awards are the best and I’ve received a few here lately. Thanks a bunch to the sweet Pippy Monster for the Supersweet Blogger and Versatile Blogger Awards! And to Kuruk and The Cat on my Head for the WordPress Family Award. And to The Wee Rabbit for the Shine On award. Wow! All these awards makes my head spin. Thank you all so much–it means a lot.

  4. Congrats on your awards Sage…You made me laugh today…Many years ago I was out walking in a sand flat with my dog Murphy and sure enough she found the only mud puddle for miles around…what made it funnier was when the ranger drove up and couldn’t believe that in all that sandy stretch i was standing there with a dog covered in mud…she couldn’t stop laughing then she took a picture to send back to her boss


  5. Sage, that last photo was worth all the others as well as the words. Mommy is sending you a big hug. That electric toothbrush thingie looks pretty scary to us. We think you were smart to hide.
