Word(less) Wednesday - RAIN!!

We had a 15 minute rain shower here the other day.  Rain has been a scarce commodity around these parts this year.  We dogs hardly knew what to think.  Neither did the two legged kids. 

We did learn though that Rain + Dry Ground = MUD!!! 


Wet Stuff?  Falling from the sky??  AWESOME!!!

Scarlet was so excited she knocked Connor down.

The rest of the gang went to make sure he was okay.

I was too busy enjoying the mud to stop and see.

He must've been alright.  A few minutes later he was throwing mud balls at his sister.

Isaac got a bit dirty.  FUN!!!

Cosmo likes the mud stuff too!

Have I mentioned that I really LOVE mud???!!!

These guys would rather watch than join in.  Mom says they're smart.  I think they're wimps!

 Oh, and mom says I have to tell you that our yard is mostly grass.  This is just the area we keep dug up - so we can have MUD!!!!



  1. Woof! Woof! Very Smart to have a space just for MUD ... How FUN!!!! Happy WW. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  2. OMD !!!! Can we PLEASE come live with you - your Mom is a whole lot more understanding about mud than ours ever would be!!!!!!! Such fun for you and the bipeds.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  3. Oh my friend, that looks like the greatest fun on the earth. I sure wish I were there to join in.


  4. MUD sounds like FUN! How come when it's spelled backwards, it's spelled DUM?!

    I have an area in our backyard where I can dig too! Wooo!

    Woofs & hugs, <3

    ~Bailey (Yep, I'm a girl!)

  5. UhOh....Me bets dere was a lot of baths goin' on at your house!!!

  6. What fun! I love Connor's sister with her wellies keeping the mud from her toes. Everyone (human and canine) needs to spend a little time in the mud.

  7. Love your the mud too!

  8. Looks like y'all had a lot of fun. I'd hate to be doing laundry at your house : )

  9. Bet your mama didn't have as much fun cleaning up all that mad!!! But, you guys had a blast!!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  10. What a great day! Duncan would have loved to have been there. Nothing makes him happier than getting wet. And muddy.

  11. That looks like a super fun muddy time! Great pictures!

  12. That rain had all the makings for a great time! I'm glad you all took advantage of it!!

  13. you guys LIKE the rain?


  14. Hey Boondocks!
    Wow, what a fun, fun, fun time!! I'd love to do that. I don't know about your place, but here at mine, we'd all have the garden hose turned on us before getting back inside! That's fun too!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  15. Oh my gosh, I would have cried if Augie and Ti got that muddy! LOL

Things to Know Before Owning a Golden Retriever:

Our oldest Golden Retriever will be six on April 1st. We got Scarlet when she was just six weeks old and quickly fell in love with her. Within another six weeks, we had our second Golden, Rhett. (Rhett passed away two years ago.) It has been five (almost six) years since we have had adolescent Golden Retrievers in our home. While I have often joked about the “first terrible two years” of a Golden Retriever’s life, I had truly forgotten just how trying a Golden puppy can be - that is until now. Cosmo will be one year old in a matter of weeks, and Rose Bud is six months old. Now all of the reasons we’d joked for so long over how hard it was to survive their puppy hood have come back to me. We’re learning again - the hard way.

With that in mind, I would like to share some tips on owning a Golden. Retriever.

Here are a few things you need to know:

1. You do not own a Golden Retriever. The more accurate description is that they own YOU.
2. Golden Retrievers will chew. If you do not provide the…


So it's been about 15 months since I blogged here.  Most days instead of in depth thoughts, I prefer to post pictures at .  It doesn't require as much brain activity.  But I chose to share this here because it was entirely too long to fit in a Facebook post.  (I do have have four kids after all.)

This was a lot of fun.  I interviewed each of my four kids separately so each answer was original and not "borrowed".  I gained some insight into my kids and learned a few things I need to work on.  And for some reason they all agree I'm obsessed with my dog.  What's up with that.

Here goes..  (Connor is 8, Isaac 12, Jaden 14, and Dacey is 16.)

MOM 1. What is something mom always says to you? Connor  – “You love me.” Isaac  – “God made you special and He and I love you very much.  Precious monkeys and all that jazz.” Jaden  – “If you keep doing that, you’re face will stick like that.” Dacey  – “Be who you are and say what you mean.  T…

Boon's Sunday Sermon #6 - Little Black Dog

Today we'd like to share a writing with you by one of our favorite authors: Elisabeth Elliot.  This piece is beautifully written and describes her thoughts on a dog's 'mortality'.  We hope it touches your heart as it has ours. 

Little Black Dog by Elisabeth Elliot
It is a late October morning of glorious sunshine in New Hampshire and I sit in an antique rocking chair by the window of an old house which was once a barn. The gray rocks on Mount Lafayette's broad summit are dusted with snow, and the sky is as blue as a sky can be. All that is still green today is the evergreens. Between them are the black line drawings of the thin leafless maples, wild cherries, aspens and birches. The feathery tamaracks are dark gold. Little yellow apples hang on one of the gnarled old trees of the orchard. I keep hoping a deer will come for them.

My friend Miriam and I drove up yesterday from Boston for a few days of quiet at my brother's place. Both of us brought a load of desk …
