Howdy doody blogaroos. Squirmy here on another wonderful Wednesday. I say wonderful, although it isn’t weather-wonderful. We are supposed to have rain most of the day. And warm temperatures. It’s always a good news-bad news situation. Because we’ve had some nice warm days – what do you think that means? Besides mud. Ticks! Yup. The Warden saw someone post on Wastebook that their dog already had a tick! Gotta bring out the plastic wrap dog suits soon…
The other good thing is that now because most of the snow has melted in the backyard, we can now see all of our toys again! We’re still missing one Kong though. The Warden was hoping that once the snow was gone we could find it – but no luck yet.
The other hidden surprise that has reappeared is poop. The Warden is pretty obsessive about picking up, but let’s face it – when the snow is deep, poop sinks. All to reappear now. Great fun.
As for the mud – I already had my first pre-Spring half-bath the other day. The Warden had taken me up to the golf course to burn off some steam. And I was sure burning. Through the woods, in the mud, through the puddles, rolling in spotty patches of snow…I was a mess when I got home. It was right into the grooming torture palace for me. But the Warden was feeling kinda lazy so I got the #2 on the grooming menu. The #2 entails legs, butt and underbelly. A #1 is the full bath. A #3 is a butt bath when one has cling-ons. A #4 is just feet. So it wasn’t TOO bad.
Hey – according to the crazy calendar- today is…..get ready….International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day!!! Really!!! I celebrate and appreciate biscuits EVERY day, but if giving biscuits a special day means extra treats, I’m all in. To mark this auspicious occasion, we found 25 biscuit recipes made with 5 ingredients or less. How easy peasy is that?
Well, time to get my raincoat out. I hope your hump day is fantastic- and you whip up some yummy biscuits for your canine kids. Or just go buy some. Like the Warden.
Have a good one. Peace and paws up. Stay safe.
