Spring Cleaning

The dust and Dakota hair were flying at our house this weekend. Apparently, spring is here.

The beautiful daffodils, planted by my grandpa, are blooming like crazy, but at our house, it's the Swiffers that are coming out.

Mom says we're not cleaning because it's spring. We have out-of-town visitors coming from Minnesota. I'm hoping for Gomer and Opie. Maybe they'll bring more big giant bones! Or maybe my new boxer friend Bugsy is coming to play.

The dust bunnies are not the only victims of the cleaning spree. Dakota and I both got baths. Unfortunately, Dakota's lovely coat does not react well to baths, so now she looks like this.

I am embarassed to be seen with her. My moms assure me that she will be back to normal soon, but I'm not so sure.

Spring cleaning = ugly Dakota + no attention for me. Harumph! Achoo!

Hey Cubby! Dog mom hasn't said anything about a road trip... but we're being extra special good just in case! Glad you like the big bones... Did you see the special treats we got today from Ohio?

Dakota looks funny! I would be embarrassed to be seen with her, too!

My dogness Cubby! Dakota does look a bit the worse for wear. Now, without a photograph, we're not sure how good you look after your bath!

I love the daffodils. We don't even have crocus yet up north. Only icy snow.

Poor Dakota. She does look kinda goofy. We hope for her sake that her coat will be back to normal soon. At least you have some pretty flowers to look at!

She looks better than my claire after a bath!

PerfectTosca said...

Wow Cubbie, you're lucky! We are still buried in snow and it's freeeeeezing here!

You're gonna meet the handsome Gomey and Opie! Geeze, I'm jealous! I got one of them big bones too, Gomey and Opie are very generous and lovable dogs that way. Wish I could meet them too and you too, but alas I live over here in East Armpit!

Poor Dakota looks so sad with that crazy hair-do! It is still snowing here...I would love to stop and smell the flowers!

Lots of love,

Hey Cubs and Dakota,

Just don't throws out any of those 'Delta' bunnys! Arf! Arf!

Our flowers are startin' to pops out here too. Well, one twos one twos (one) that is.

Kota, I think you should go to a car wash next times and get detailed. Then you'd look reeeallys cooools!

Hi Cubby! I wish I could come visit you. I'd pick you a very pretty spring bouquet (by biting the heads off all those delicious looking daffodils). Yummy!!!
