FFHT - Muddy Choices

This month's inclusion is:  "It was the worst New Years resolution that I ever made!"  For information about Fractured Fryday Hairy Tales, see the tab on our blog.

*****

Me and Stanley did NOT make new years resolutions this year because of what happened to us last time.  Last year we BOTH made a resolution to NOT get muddy paws.  Then just a couple days after New Year's Day, we had a bit of a warm spell.  It got warm, the snow melted, and then the holes that we spent all spring, summer and autumn digging the year before filled with mud.

We didn't know it happened until we went outside to go pee just before bed time.  I saw them first and hollered to Stanley, "Brother, come here . . . quickly . . . it's an emergency!"  Stanley could hear the urgency in my bark so he came running over right away.

He stopped where I was standing.  It was an area of the yard that was well lit by the flood light that is in our back yard.  He took a long look at the hole,  It was the biggest of all of them.  We spent a lot of time perfecting it.  He dropped his nose down to smell it.  Then he slowly lifted his head and looked at me.  We both knew what the other was thinking.  We promised mom with our New Year's Resolution but this was clearly the worse New Year's Resolution that we ever made!

We wanted to get in the mud hole and we wanted it bad!  We remembered back when we were little puppies, how much fun it was to play in the mud.  We have a long history of getting in the mud.  How could we make such a stoopid resolution that stood against everything we stood for and believed in?

So after staring at the mud hole for what felt like an eternity.  Stanley said it out loud . . . "Brother" he barked, "This really was the worse New Year's Resolution that we ever made!"  And then he made his decision.




But he never did get mud on his paws.

  14. Hey Doods!
    Wow, this has been a super FFHT and I've seen great stories all around Blogville! Gee, I'd never be able to give up muddy digging. You guys did great to even try it. To me, a good dig-fest is well worth a bath in the end. BOL

  18. Maybe its just Mom's computer but there is no link, but one that takes you to the link site to create an account, and we're not seeing the pictures of the other bloville folks below - just their addresses typed out. I will check back in later to see if I can get the link.

    And you look cute with a muddy nose!

  20. OMD! Mud holes are meant to be trounced and bounced! That was not a good resolution. We resolved to eat more treats and get more belly rubs. So far so good! Bahaha!

  25. Way to go with keeping your pawmise to your mom. That was a pretty bad resolution though. It is impossible to keep our paws clean all the time.
