Oh boy, oh boy……I just love to play in dirt. Funny because I also love to be nice and clean and handsome too and spend a lot of time staying that way with Mom’s help (and my brush of course). But, one of my very favorite games to play outside involves DIRT.
Here’s how you play the game….first you find a patch of dirt where grass isn’t growing (Daddy hates that grass won’t grow in some spots….I love it)……then you dig in with your toes and scrape the dirt around a little – throw some up in the air if you can (haha) – all the time you are going in a circle around the dirt…..you keep your tail all puffed up like a raccoon – that makes Mommy laugh (also part of the game).
Then, when you’re good and dirty, you move on to the NEXT patch of dirt and do the same thing! By now, Mom is falling out of her chair laughing at you…….way cool……
Then comes the best part…..here’s how you finish the game up…..you run as fast as you can across the yard and fling yourself up on the old oak tree about three feet off the ground and HANG THERE by your claws!!!! It’s apparently VERY impressive to watch. It kind of wears me out these days since I’m getting middle aged but it’s worth it. That is until we come back inside. Mom cleans my feet off with an old towel and I’m not too crazy about THAT part.
I DO love dirt………..and hearing Mommy laugh!!
