The dirty, the proud

Posted by laurie on July 1, 2014


We have pretty much abandoned our back woods in favor of the path along the canal for walks. It’s called the tow path because mules used to tow barges from New York to Philadelphia. (More info here.) I used to think it was the toe path because of, well, toes.

Anyway, there is a lot less hosing off of muddy beagles.

  1. Scooter and Spenser look like they had fun. Not quite so sure about the hosing off of the mud part. My two hate the water and the water sprinkler. they won’t go near my garden when I am watering it.

    A muddy beagle is a happy beagle, but it’s definitely a pain to get them clean enough to be allowed back into the house. You’re better off on the “Toe” path. :->

    Muddy happy adorabeagles!

    My Shotzy GS loves the water…. But the other 3 do not. Although our new rescue Wookey Malinois seems to be okay around the hose (will drink out of it) and doesn’t mind getting her feet wet, but will avoid the water stream at all costs 🙂

    Our dogs run when they see the hose. LOL

    Our two think water is only good for drinking and the occasional paddle when we go to the beach on holiday!!

    Great news – I’ve just had an e-mail saying that the Run Free e-petition being run by Beagle Welfare in the UK now has 50,000 signatures!! they want 75,000 and then it will be presented to the UK Government, to try and get beagle breeding for experimentation purposes stopped in the UK. Not before time!!! Many thanks to all who signed – for anyone who would like to, or to find out more about the campaign, visit
    and click on ”Aims and Campaign Strategy’ – you’ll be able to sign the e-petition from there. Be ready for some dreadful pictures on the website, although they’ll only make you want to sign the petition even more

    Spenser looks so content, must have been his adventurous soul

    Beagles – If they’re not getting muddy, they’re rolling in something stinky!

  8. The deciding factor when deciding to go to the dog park in the morning is whether I feel like bathing them if they roll in cat poop. I can’t start my day with bath stress if I don’t have the time
