    What have your pets been up to lately?

    I have a whole bunch of dogs. Here's Champs in a fake obedient pose;

    Here's how he usually looks. Most disobedient dog I've ever had. In this pic I am having to grab him and pull him away from digging for a squirrel.

    Good ideas with that little swimming pool Naz. We put our Stella the beagle into the wash tub, but she does not love it.

    The two on the right are mine, the one on the left is my "step dog" that was just visiting. Odon, the Shelty on the right, was young there. He's bigger and a lot fluffier now.

    My dogs love to roll in smelly stuff. Champs, even likes to get sprayed by skunks. He's gotten sprayed 3 times and one time a skunk missed so he went over and rolled in the stink. Tomato juice and hydrogen peroxide mixed together have worked the best for me in getting rid of the smell.

    I like the pic of red going to Austin. Looks like he is driving. Here's one where Scrappy looks like he is part of a log;
    [​IMG]


    Here's one of my favorite pics of Champs. I didn't have the camera pointed straight so all you see is his mischievous head at the bottom;[​IMG]

    I hike and camp out a lot with my dogs and going through the brush sometimes they get a lot of burrs so I don't have any dogs with good coats. (Once I wore short pants in a burr area and had just as many burrs as my dog on my leg hairs. It was rough getting them out because most of the time I'd pull hairs out trying to get the burr off.)These little burrs actually taste good. I tried a few and it had a nice mild peppery taste with a slight wood flavor. I thought it would be interesting to grind a bunch up and use as a topping in a cooking contest to see if the judge could tell what the taste was. Morel mushrooms grow in some of our hiking areas and I like to dry them out, grind them to powder in a coffee grinder and use as a flavoring on pizza or omelets.

    A neighbor has a bunch of Shelty's. They seem a lot more intelligent than my dogs. Those Labs and Beagles sure have cute smiles!

    I'm disappointed he wasn't named Rocky to continue the Beatles theme!
