Dirty Toes……

I love playing in dirt....Mom's not so thrilled about that though!

I love playing in dirt....Mom's not so thrilled about that though!

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!!

  1. Sorry I’m late coming by to see what you are up to this morning, Sammy. I’ve been taking Zoe for our morning constitutional. That’s something you don[‘t have to worry about because you have you very own “toilet,” than you use, and mommy has to clean. I’ve heard from her that you are pretty finicky about that, and whenever you use it you alert mommie so she can clean it out. Cool!

    Playing in the dirt sounds like great fun, and I’d love to see you take that running leap and latch onto the tree. Zoe likes to search out yard cats on our walks and sometimes they get very close to each other, with me holding onto the leash so I can pull her back in case there is trouble. What makes her day is when she can manage to get a cat to run, She thinks that’s something, but I think she understand that she would play a large price if she actually caught one. It is just a game with her and most of the cats too. They like to see how far each of them can out-stare the other.


  2. HA! Yep – we do like to do that……….now I don’t do it with dogs myself but I can definitely out-stare a chipmunk or squirrel! It’s like a challenge to see who breaks off the staring match first………..HAHA Mommy says people play games like that too sometimes. Who will back down first. I guess we really ARE all animals then huh?

    Tell Zoe I said “Hey”………..



I wanna know what YOU've got to say!!
