Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

Hi all ya bloggies.....

It's me, Dewey Dewster, here at our cottage again......nothin' really excitin' ever happens at our house anymore but lots of stuff happens at our cottage.

The weather has been pretty mild for November in this part of the country and today we went for a walk down the road.

We stayed on the road becuz it was startin' ta get dark even though it wasn't even 5 o'clock yet....that's one thing we don't like about the fall.

We were runnin' down the road and then we ran back up the road....

My Mom gets hot when she does that.....

There's a big mud puddle across the road from us and my Mom thought that she could cool off in the puddle......

Sooooooo......

In she went........

'N she just enjoyed the moment entirely....like she always does when she sees a mud puddle before Gram can stop 'er........


My Mom thinks she looks nice when she is all muddy.....I tell ya me 'n Toby stayed away from that mud puddle.....no gettin' muddy fer us....no siree......

Can ya believe that my Mom is just stayin' in there all this time ????


Stickin' 'er head in the mud 'n all......now that makes ya dirty.....



Yep....she's drippin' mud....'n all 'er white parts are now brown with mud.....

Don't know if ya can see this video cause it was gettin' dark when Gram took it....if ya can see it...ya can tell my Mom was havin' fun........

But do ya all know what happens when ya get all muddy?????

Me 'n Toby know....'n that's why we stay outta mud puddles
....why ya get a BATH.......



Wonder if my Mom is sorry now that she got inta that mud puddle........

But all's well that ends well......

We got special treats that Gram gets at the feed store up here....some cow part, we think....but we're not sure which one...

But we can tell ya that they are GOOD......




Toby likes his chewy.....


My Mom likes her chewy........


'N I sure love my chewy......
We'd send ya some but we're gonna eat 'em all.....sorry guys.....I'm not really inta sharin' chewys.....
Have a great week everyone....stay outta mud puddles.......'n enjoy any chewys that ya may get.....
This is Dewey Dewster reportin' on a silly Mom who thinks she looks beautiful when she's muddy.........

She was SOOOOOO having a mess of fun!

I don't think the bath will deter her from hopping right in the next time and the next time!

Hi, Dewey!
Sure your mom was having fun there!
Now, I am thinking... if I want a bath... I need to find a mud puddle!
Yummy chews! Don't think about cow parts... just enjoy those chews!
Kisses and hugs

I heard somebody whispering to mom in that movie. She apparently was far too busy to pay them any mind.

Slobbers,

Petey said...

Hey Dewey, that's a pretty good deal - your Mom gets a bath and you and Toby get the yummy snacks and NO bath! I like to go into water, about shoulder deep, but I'm not going to go snorkeling like Asta Marie! She's awfully brave - does she blow bubbles with her face in the water?

Your pal,

Petey

What fun your Mom did have!!(Until the bath thing anyhow!)
Those sticks, (mom calls em bull pizzles...says it is a nicer word than what they are..) WE LOVE, LOVE them. They are the best.
Hugs
Sunny
ps Mom says we are slow in visiting, we try to catch up on reading, (which mom says will take us bazillion yrs) and trying to comment here and there. Mom is so busy!

Your mom sure doesn't look like she's enjoying her bath much! Mud is always better!

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Hehe...I think your Mom is enjoying a nice mud bath *wink* Women do that to keep themselves pretty...heh! Those chewies look very yummy...and big! I'm going to ask Mom if she will get me one *grins*

Thanks for your comment on my blog entry..Mom found a summary on that movie she posted. The humans did go back to get the doggies after the quake settled...everyone was okay, but the mom became very thin due to lack of food. Still, she nursed her pups until they were fat and chubby...how great is a mother's love, no?

Joe Stains said...

Wow, I have never been in a mud puddle that big before ever! Looks like it could be fun, except it is water and I hate water :)

Chef ·˙ ۛ ♥ said...

That looks more like a mud ocean than a mud puddle, Dewey. It's huge. It think your mom is very brave. It would scare the daylights right out of me, frankly. But, like Joey, the mud part is what I like.

Funny you should mention the bull thingy - Mama bought me my veryfirst one today. I stole it off the kitchen table and started to eat it with the plastic wrapper still on it but Papa took it off. Was it ever delish. I don't blame you for not sharing yours!

It's always fun until cleanup time. Still, not a bad day! :)

Agatha and Archie said...

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh what fun that looked like......Splish splashh(in the mud we mean NOT THE BATH) love A+A

Koobuss said...

Oh, boy!! Does that look gweat!!! You are so lucky, Asta, to have such a giant mud puddle so close to where you live at your cottage. I like puddles, too, and make sure that I walk though every one that I can find on my walks after it rains. I don't know what's wrong with the guys though. They just don't get it. Mud is so much fun! And the bath afterward ain't so bad either. The worst part is the soap. But the warm water sure feels good.

Is the puddle still there? You can have fun with it every day! You are so lucky, Asta!!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie

One day I'm gonna do that. Play in a big mud puddle like your mom. Yep. I see it in my future. I hear it's beautifying. And, the good thing is, I sorta even like the shower afterwards. And I especially like the feeling AFTER the shower. Being all white and fluffy. Perfect for getting all muddy again. Hmmm. I think I could do that every day.
Thanks for the inspiration. Gonna go watch that video again,
Fergi (Jake'll probably never get muddy on purpose)

oorvi said...

I don't know how your mom can do that! Even if my choon-choon went into that puddle, I'd not go in. No way!

I am glad that good sense prevailed upon Toby and you, and both of you stayed clean:) I loved that picture of your mom with the chewy - that's the way dogs should be - cozy and comfy with a chewy.

Now...where's my choon-choon?

Licks n wags,
Oorvi

Eric said...

That's one huge puddle your Mom's in Dewey, having a do it herself spa day. I avoid 'em at all cost, it's only the mud I like. Which of course is one of the best selling lines in me and Petey's doggie Spa range.

Then those moo chews. Boy oh boy you all look super cute!

Wiry loves and kissies Eric xxxxx

Rudy said...

OH wow I want to come visit you and get all muddy like that! Ooooooohhh..
I love to get dirty!! We Bedlingtons loooove that, we can make our Mom so crazy! You'd think nice fluffy dogs wouldn't like dirt but people forget we're terriers first! Oh you guys know how to have fun ---

Rudy said...

Oh hey, did you ever go to West Virginia to do any Earthdog?? Mom started going there in 1999 up to when they stopped having it there a few years ago. The nice lady that let us all Earthdog on her place just passed away... very sad. I could tell you stories about our Earthdog fun out there! It was Mom's favorite place to go for Earthdog!

Rudy

Rudy said...

Hi again!

Yep they do have Earthdog in FL but it's Dec. 4-6th in Ocala so you may have missed the cutoff date except maybe for Intro. And in GA they have one in February (outside Atlanta I think) depending on how close you'll be to that one. Otherwise you'll have to suffer with all that nice warm weather (I'm not jealous -- yeah right).
Look up the schedule on the AKC website www akc org under Events in case they add another test.

I hope we'll hear about your adventures down there this winter!

Happy Thanksgiving --
Rudy

Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving, Dewey and family, filled with lots of turkey and pumpkin pie. We're stuffed and laying around now, feeling thankful for full tummies, loving families and friends like you.

Love
Jake and Fergs xxoo

Oooh, that mud puddle would not be for me and neither would that bath!
Hope you had a great turkey day!
