Earthy Dog

This is what my feet look like 50% of the time......

So I get lots of feet baths......which I HATE!

This is what my bed outside looks like 99% of the time

This is what my yard looks like all year round, maybe a little better in the summer since that's when I spend a lot of time gardening!!

Mum is trying to grow grass back in this spot. I don't understand why she keeps trying to grow grass. I have showed her many many times already that as soon as those barriers come down, I don't waste a second and get right back to work!!

I have no problem getting into precarious positions to do my gardening. For example, I can work under the ramp in a crouched position.

Since mum decided to fill Hole # 3, I felt I needed to add in one more hole just to make it even. So this morning, I started a new project right next to the barrier of ex Hole # 3

This is how I prefer to spend the night....

This is what I love to do any chance I get!!

I make sure I cover every inch of my body with dirt,

This is my preferred look any day, any time!

This is how I'm wired genetically, so you can't stop me!!!

I love being EARTHY!!! Sand from the beach just don't cut it, it has to be EARTH!

***The word "terrier" is actually derived from the Latin word "terra", meaning EARTH. Terriers such as Jaffe , Buster , and myself are originally bred for hunting and killing vermins (shhhh....don't tell Georgie that.). They were used to hunt mountain lion, fox, badger, weasel, otter, and other small game both above and under ground (requires LOTS of digging or going in holes).

I like digging too. Though I don't have chance to play on a garden/grass, but I "dig" the house's floor. But for your info, it's all marble or tiles! Which also means, no harm done to the floor! Sigh! If i have a whole garden for myself, surely you'll see hole here and there.

Hi Sunshade,

Is there anything in particular that you are digging for??

I always thought there is a bone somewhere underground ...

Hey Sunshade,
You look good in that shade of dirt! hehehehe! Us wirey pals were also bred to even hunt deer!! So when Mama & Papa first got us, they taught us not to growl, bark or chase the deer that come into our yard. We just sit on our perch and watch them from the window. Sometimes we want to go out and play with the little ones cause they run around and chase each other just like doggies! Mama will post some birthday pics later tonight on our blog!!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

I am not a terrier which explains why I hate getting dirty. Once I rubbed my head in the grass in some dog poop and my head stunk so bad Mama gave me a dozen baths. Must of been having a terrier moment that day.
Mama says sometimes I can be a little terror. Is that the same as terrier?

sunshade, you're such a outdoorsy girl!!! :) i'm glad you're able to enjoy yourself even in your own backyard :) and i'm glad for your mom that you have your own bed :p hee hee.. but i read somewhere in your blog that you're allowed on her bed too right? :) hehehe...

Hey Sunshade - What's your astrology sign? Are you one of the earth signs?

Sunshade said...

Amanda & Pacco: do you mean I should have "poodle" feet??

Booboo: come over and help me, my yard still need LOTs of work, there's too much grass not enough EARTH!!

Zach: SIGH...unfortunately I am WAY too big for earth dog trials, that would be so much fun to do. I wish they would have a digging contest you know, I mean, they have diving contests for retrievers, so why not digging contest for terriers?? I could soo win that!!

Huskee: you HAVE to try digging the real thing!! Bed digging is nothing compared to the real deal!!

Bond: actually, I just get itchy feet, and I just really really really need to dig you know what I mean? I'm sure you are the same when you see water right? You just have to go in??

Butchy & Snickers: WOW... I'm so impressed how you guys listen to your parents even though hunting deer is what's wired genetically in you guys!!

Chelsea: I don't think your mama's version of "terror" comes even close to what us real terrors are...... I'm sure my mum is very envious of your mama right now since you hate to be dirty..hehe!

Chiyo: I think you meant to say that I sometimes allow my mum to borrow my beds inside right?? Mum just puts a bed and a heating pad outside for me since I'm such an "out doorsy" girl as you put it! I havent' been allowed to sleep in my yard tho after the raccoon incident...SIGH

T-man: I'm a Scorpio butt, and Sagittarius head. Though I do act more like a Scorpio, so I guess you can say that's earthy right??


Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade
