River of Sludge/ Dog Bath

Well....the new well is not going so well.
Approaching 400' deep and still no water good enough to drink :(
With each foot of drilling, up comes glop and sludge that runs all over our property.
The folks are aghast.
While us dogs do not like the noise of the big drill, we do like exploring through the mud every evening when the men go home!
Today, we find our doggy selves at scrubbin' bubbles dog wash.
Why do we need to clean off that glorious mud? Why?

Hey, I'm going to be 8 years old in a couple of days!
This is no way to treat your "Birthday Boy"!!
Wyatt and Tegan


  1. We agree, Wyatt and Tegan!!! It is so dry here we haven't seen mud in a long time. We bet it feels to good to plow through that glorious mud:)
