Hiking Fiasco

Gryff went hiking with his gal pal Maggie today and he had simply the best time ever. He learned that he loves to play in lots of water and then roll around in the dirt, leaves, and twigs. He was so full of ground in stuff that he made Kubrick at the playdate look remarkably clean.

I tried getting the majority of the stuff out of his fur before bathing him, but more and more showed up as I bathed him. Now I am waiting for him to dry so I can continue pulling junk out of his hair. In addition, he is blowing coat so badly that I am going to have him shaved down to nothing on Wednesday. He is one gigantic mat covered in leaves and twiggy things.

At least he had fun though.

I didn't take any pictures on the hike unfortunately. I have pictures of the aftermath, but they really don't do any justice to how truly filthy he was.

Oh well you know the old fashion saying-Boys will be Boys and that means boy pupsters too. But at least he had fun & that is what counts.

Well havanese are labs after all

A dog is a dog is a dog. While others run around the mud, mine run right through it usually right after grooming. I used to get upset and then I realized, they are really dogs no matter how adorable they are.

Just like my daughter, the dogs only look amazing for a few seconds, and then they go natural. Just like they should.

I think he has such character and looks so pleased with himself.
