My Dog, The Jerk (SOL16 #12)
There is little that Maiden loves more than spending time outside in our yard. We have a large fenced in backyard where she can run and chase squirrels. Usually it's a beautiful thing.
Unfortunately there are times of the year where the backyard isn't as pretty. Namely, right after the last snow finally melts and the grass has not come in all plush and green. During this time the yard becomes an awful mud pit.
At least my husband and I see it that way. Maiden on the other hand finds it to be simply amazing. She still spends her time chasing squirrels. However now as she chases large clumps of mud get wedged under her nails and fly through the air as she rips up the lawn. After the mud flies and she rids our yard of the squirrels, it's time to relax... lying right in the mud. Not only relaxing but also rolling in the mud. Wiping her face in all the "good" smells. I'm sure it's wonderful for her, but those feelings don't transfer to me when she comes back in the house.
Thus, my dog... the jerk with mud stains all over her. Unfortunately you can't smell her through the picture... but let me tell you, it's an awful scent.
