“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Dirty Picture

Not THAT kind...

We've had a spot of rain the past few days, leaving the ground pretty saturated - add to that some landscaping blocks from the prior owners that I've moved & we have a couple of mud puddles out back.

And, in case I haven't mentioned it before, my partner is just a bit playful - part of what makes him work so well, but it also means that given the chance he will run, jump and play til he is exhausted & still want more.

So today I was doing some yardwork and added a bit of extra kennel cleaning to the mix, since it was nice & sunny & warm.

As soon as I let him out, what did he do? That's right - beeline to the nearest mud puddle with the remnants of a tennis ball and spend the next fifteen minutes tossing it and digging in the mud for it and having the best day of his week.

So, here he is in a pause in the action - his normal color a bit wetter & browner than it was a half hour prior. Just figured I'd share.

Apparently the pooch aims to misbehave, too:)

We have a kiddie pool for our labs. They love trying to dig the pictures off the bottom.
