I love nicer weather, because it always means "Walkie!"
Yesterday, after some serious harness adjusting (for Patches), we hit the pavement and began our very first 3-mile walk of 2008! At first, my mama tried to keep us out of all the puddles...but gave up after realizing that her efforts were futile. We knew that playing in puddles would lead to bathtime, but it was worth the trade off. Patches especially attacked them with much gusto - slamming 2 paws into each puddle for the biggest splash possible, getting me and mama every time!
Here we are checking out a cat in someone's yard.
We passed a store front, and Patches went absolutely nutty - - he thought there was another handsome Beaglier behind the glass door. Ruff, ruff! I had to tell him that it was our own reflection. Silly puppy!
Check out how incredibly dirty we are! Our bath water was black. I don't look as dirty as Patchy - but it's only because I have black fur...mama said we were both yucky to the max. But, we sure had fun.
