Mud Swamps

Lab Brats at Dog Park
Mommy surprised us with a trip to the off-leash dog park yesterday. The snow was finally bye-bye and daddy suggested she take Cheyenne and me there before the rain came. Now we have nothing against the rain but for some reason mommy and daddy think we get a bit smelly afterwards. Humans! They don't know beautiful doggy cologne when they smell it!

Anywho... me and the 'lil sis were so excited to go that we just ran and ran and ran and.. well, you get the idea. *dog laugh* So, we ran and all but then noticed something awesome down the path. It was a mud pool big enough for us Lab Brats to run in and out of numerous times. Mommy had her back turned to us so it was the perfect time to occupy ourselves with this new found treasure.

As mommy was talking to another dog mommy, the dog mommy (who was facing us) let out an "Oh my God!" and pointed to us. We are just so proud of mommy's response to the lady. As mommy turned towards us, she shrugged and said to the woman in a very calm and matter-of-fact tone: "Oh yeah. They are Labradors through and through. No use in getting upset about something that is in their nature. Just need to make sure to walk them around for a while in the dry areas until the mud dries and falls off before getting them into my car."

At this, the woman looked like she was going to fall over from mommy's response. Well, that was until mommy put up her hand and pointed to the dog lady's own Springer Spaniel that was rolling around in a separate mud swamp area not too far away. Without so much as a goodbye, the lady let out a shriek and ran towards her dog yelling and waving her arms.

Wonder what gots her all frazzled... humans can just be so weird sometimes!

Lab smiles,
Dakota (& Cheyenne)

I remember the first time we took our yellow lab to the dog park.

She found a niiiice pile of mud and left looking like a chocolate lab.

Living in Oregon our off leash park has many mud puddles for about 6 months out of the year. My chocolate lab Gracie loves running through the puddles, dropping her nose at just the right time to scoop the water up and over her head. I tell people passing by that she is really a yellow lab under all that mud!

You're right - no sense fighting their love of water and mud. Just load up some extra towels in the car.
