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.
