Malakai and Jayda got to spend some time helping their grandma move to her new house this weekend. Malakai had to help so that he could be sure she didn’t forget “his” giant sectional.
While at Grandma’s new house Jayda and Mickey got to spend a lot of time in Grandma’s new fenced in back yard.
Unfortunately it rained almost all weekend and the barren flower beds were filled with mud. The events that followed led me to my post idea for the day.
5 things dogs love but humans hate.
1. Play in the mud.
Despite me and Rae’s best efforts we could not keep any of the three dogs out of the muddy, empty garden. We went through a half a dozen towels and 2 baths each in ONE day this weekend. Every time we brought the dogs in, they smiled at us like they had just won the lottery.
2. Roll in stinky things.
Not only did they all get to play in the mud, but they also found something gloriously disgusting to roll in. I’m not quite sure what it was, but all three dogs loved it. The smell was the reason for the bath, not the mud.
3. Dig in the yard.
With rain comes soft ground. What is the best thing you can do with soft earth you may ask? Well according to Jayda and Rajah, the answer is dig. They dug two giant holes roughly the size of Texas in Grandma’s brand new yard space.
4. Escape barriers.
Jayda had finally had enough of her playful puppy shenanigans and decided that she wanted to help move boxes and furniture. She ever so gracefully jumped the four foot wooden fence like a gazelle. What dog doesn’t like to test their boundaries?
5. Bark at intruders.
I left the most important doggie favorite for last. How can any dog resist the urge to bark at anyone they may think is an intruder. According to Jayda and Malakai, if a human/dog/bird/moving object is closer than three backyards away it is an intruder and must be warned to stay away. We couldn’t convince them otherwise.
I love my dogs, but man are they work. Unfortunately I didn’t get any photos of my dog’s antics. I was busy moving. What are some things your dogs do that make you want to go crazy?
