We took Penny with us while we were cutting wood this weekend. She ran around rolling in the grass, splashing in the mud, and running through the weeds. The Cowboy went with her for a while because he wanted to “have an adventure and find some reptiles or something.”
This is what too much Old Yeller will cause.
They were looking for “a frog or a snake or some-tin.”
What they found was a whole lot a’mud and a whole lot a’ticks.
But I got some great shots out of it.
Every time he found a new stump the Cowboy would jump up and strike a pose for me. And there were lots of stumps out there! Dirt and boots and grins, he was in his element.
We were biding time while Mr. Fix-It and the other two dropped a truckload of firewood off and came back to get us (and another load). We use the GMC for the real “hard labor” around here and it’s only a regular cab–only 3 seats. Gets a little tricky with a 5 person family (6 if you count Penny!) but we make it work.
And Penny’s getting the hang of riding in the back of the truck on her own–at least around the neighborhood here. She rides in her crate in the back of the truck if we’re going out of town all together–and in the front seat if there’s only 4 of us.
How do you make room for the family dog with the rest of the family in your vehicle? Especially when they’re covered in mud?!
