Sadie Says - Ruff, Ruff, Ruff, Rough!

Things have been a bit rough around Timber Life. Mom keeps letting me outside to use my sniff and chase reflexes when the squirrels are mining underneath her car. Chewing whatever they chew...Those little red tree rats really give me a great workout. Anything with legs that move - I'm ON IT! Anyway, some times those creatures take off into the timber where Mom doesn't mow, or spray chemicals. Over the years animals have brought some really sticky seeds into my close to home running range.
You should see how the long hair on my beautiful ears gets twisted
- no need for styling mousse these days.

OH NO! Here she comes again! Two brushes in hand. I get to chew the green brush handle when she is going at me with that blasted wire thingy. Mom and I are both going to be extremely happy when the snow finally comes to cover those prickly stickers over for this season! Pssst! Ya know what's funny? I get to snicker, cause Mom has to peel those pokies off herself tooo...;)

Good to hear from you again, Sadie. Snow should bring a whole new world of amazing thing for you to check out. Hope you get one of those rascaly things before too long.

Mel - Thanks for stopping in...You might know how it is when you have to share a keyboard with somebody who is addicted to the computer. I finally got this post out when her back was turned.

I am looking forward to some of that white stuff that was falling outside in South Dakota, when I was still with my doggy mom, Daffy. Only this time I will get to play in it! ;)

Looks like Sadie has grown quite a bit.

I remember brushing stickers out of one of our Brittany Spaniels when I was growing up. That was no fun.

Simply Outdoors - It isn't an easy job to get the sticky seeds out is it...Thinking about making the hair on her ears shorter during the season when the seeds are most abundant. We'll have to see.

Oh my do I remember those days all too well. Our dog used to run through a brush patch and come back just covered nose to tail in cockleburs - or however you spell it! Now we have a little house dog (don't tell anyone - can't ruin my reputation!) and he's kinda a pansy and doesn't really like to go places he might get hurt or dirty.

Tom Sorenson - Each kind of dog has its value. Even pansy doggies.

Sadie loves running through what ever it takes to follow that scent. It is more of a gallop, can't get there fast enough. ;)
