Momma did it again!

Sheesh. You know how when you're just starting to get a really good mud wallow, and the humans start yelling at you and usually make you take a B-A-T-H? And then if you rinse off all that yucky soap by taking a fresh dip in the mud, they get really mad? Yeah, well, apparently this is a rule with double standards. Look what Momma was doing yesterday.


I would've gotten in SO much trouble if I got that muddy, but she had people cheering for her instead! What is UP with that??? See, yesterday was something called a "mud run." There's this place called TNMRA that hosts mud runs every year near us, and this year LBR was their chosen charity. So LBR set up a table at every run, and we got a dollar for every single registration fee.

LBR volunteers working the table, with Pack Leader Sharon in the middle

Unfortunately, it was a really COLD day, so Momma was muttering lots of words that she really wasn't supposed to say when she was getting ready. She said she was shouting them when she was actually running. As punishment, she got squirted with water in a big hose. I hope she's sorry about it!


But I'm very proud of her hard work. It was a ruff run, especially with it being so cold. She said this one was a lot tougher than the first mud run she did back in March. But anything is made better if you have zombies show up in the end and do a Thriller dance.


'Nough said. :)

Yes I do believe there is a double standard here but in your moms defense it was for a greater good.

Aroo to you,
Sully

Mr. pip will be missed. He was one of our blog pals too.

I think it's best not to dwell on muddy mom and the inequities of life. Humans are kind and well meaning for the most part, but they do have rules that are different for them and their doggies. As long as mom is still running and bouncing then it's all good.

Kisses,
Dexter

Zombies doing a thriller dance -- I wouldn't have expected to see that at a mud run! I wonder if dogs have a mud run -- or is that just for peeps. I bet dogs would be way better at the mud run than humans.
