Smooch in the sandbox

Me: Somebody's going to get a bath before she's allowed back in the house.




Smooch: Who me? I'm not dirty.




Smooch: Must get to the bottom of this...




Smooch:  ... but first I have to sneeze.




Smooch:  Maybe if I dig sideways for awhile...




Smooch: I hate it when my ears get full of dirt.




And people wonder why I don't landscape the back yard.





It would spoil all of Smooch's fun.




Smooch: Life is good.

    We have to dig a bunch of fence posts next week, maybe Smooch could come over and help out ! The pay is not good but the food is.

  17. I went to the sight listed above, and read about the Carolina Dogs. You just might have something there, cause I found this:

    Interesting.

  18. You're such a good mom to allow her to dig to her heart's content. We had a dirt pile in our back yard when our son was a little boy. He spent more hours than I can count playing there. I do wonder what caught Smooch's attention at that spot in the yard. She's obviously going after something. LOVE this post. Life IS good, Smooch.

  19. Smooch is such a great dog. I just love her happy face as she excavates for whatever it was. Great post and as always excellent photos of a beautiful subject. Oma Linda

  20. So Smooch has a job and I doubt she finds all the questions amusing, more into the why not "go and find your own hole to dig."

  21. She sure looks like she was enjoying herself. Kudo's to you Carson for letting her have her fun. Who needs landscaping anyway?

  28. How cute...Is she on the trail of something or just enjoying a good dig?

  29. I came over from Sandra's blog to have a look. This cracked me up because I have a digger too. My Duke doesn't seem to be quite as good as Smooch is
