Puppy Photo of the Week

New Year's Day it rained and rained and rained.  Thus far, Milt has not taken too much of an interest in our backyard, but when he discovered how muddy our yard can get, his interest was definitely piqued.  He was digging deep down in the muck and racing circles around himself for no particular reason at all.  This does not make for an easy cleanup, as you can see.

Milt plays hard.

The bath water reminded me of the Augustus Gloop and the chocolate river scene in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  Disappointingly our water is simply dirty dirt and not luscious chocolate.  We thought about rinsing the Milt off with a hose outside, but we deemed the water temperature just too cold for him.  If his grime starts clogging our bathtub though, he will just need to tough it out!


  1. Oh my goodness! I would have not been a happy Momma :)

  2. What is it about white or cream colored dogs and rubbing themselves in mud/dirt!! My little kiko loves to do this too and doesn't care how filthy she gets! The best thing you will love about having a yard now and deck is you can start hosing him off outside when the weather is warmer!!

    1. Ugh, I know! I can't even imagine getting as filthy as they do! There must be some sort of fun in it...!

  3. Oh Milt, you silly goose! Sounds like he had one heck of a time, though.

    I hope he loves the water as much as Stanlee does because I don't foresee him giving up mud-diving any time soon.
