I got a new toy. I know, I know, you thought I meant the kids got something, but they have plenty of toys! I got a new camera! My coveting of this camera has not been a secret and we finally saved enough money to get it. What am I photographing, you ask yourself? Well, the dogs, of course! They like to run towards it and check it out when I try to take pictures of them, though, so getting good ones is harder than it may seem. I haven't yet connected the camera to my computer so cannot show you any of the pictures I've taken because I have gotten a few pretty adorable pictures! In fact, all the pictures I've taken with this camera are of the dogs, minus a couple of exceptions of Keith pix.
Now to the "stuff" part of the post: It is muddy outside today. We're talking really muddy! It's also not super cold (or the ground would be frozen - duh!) so the doggies are happy being out there. I just can't leave them unattended while in the back yard (fenced in, btw) because of their inclination to dig. Now, this is bad enough in dirt, but in mud, well, it's a downright nightmare! I got Casey to come (literally) running towards the back door and inside. Poly, on the other hand decided not to acknowledge my existence and continued to dig and sit in the mud. I went and got her, brought her in and got a towel. They both had to have their paws (and her entire legs) cleaned off. They do not exactly enjoy this process, to say the least.
As you can imagine, these two paragraphs are NOT related -- I did not take pictures of my muddy "puppies." Nor do I intend to take pictures of the muddy foot prints left in the kitchen before I got to their little paws. Hmmmm, I wonder if we can make the entire back yard a wooden deck with a little corner for grass. Hey, it's less digging space, right?
