Mucky Pup!

Ada has been hiking with us before.  And while she has got pretty messy in the past–rolling around in leaves and what-not–I don’t think either of us fully anticipated her reaction to walking in the forests of Northern Washington.

It was quite damp in the forest and raining intermittently.  This meant that Ada quickly became rather bedraggled.  For some reason, unbeknownst to us, she would stop every 100m or so and either lie down or roll her face in the floor.  This in turn caused her hair to become full of sticks and leaves, which would make her roll around more as she tried to get them off her.  Not the smartest of pups, it would seem.

1. Lie down or roll.
2. Pick out the big bits.
3. Keep on picking.
4. Try again.

Needless to say, we cut the walk short.  But by the end of it we managed to keep her walking straight by giving her with treats every 30-seconds or so.

Beach Pup

Ada loves the beach.  So when we started planning a get together with friends at a beach house near Sequim, Washington, there was no question that Ada would join us.

Ada loves the beach

Torn by her dislike of water and her love of stinky things.
