Francesca is so Gross! Ewwwww

We are urban coonhounds, Francesca and I, so we are fairly well-mannered and clean. If we lose it and get muddy at the dog park, for example, we'll be headed for a bath for certain.

So I was very surprised to discover Francesca's dirty little secret. I noticed this when she was prancing around in the backyard one day with something in her mouth... something small. Then she would spit it out and roll on it. I didn't know what to make of her actions.

So I waited until she went into the house and checked where she had been rolling. Know what it was? Get ready for this... AN EARTH WORM!

Francesca mouths earthworms (she doesn't eat them) and when she's finished with that, she spits them out and rolls on them. EWWWWWW!

The earthworm wiggle and roll.
Now I've never done anything like that and can't even figure out why she's doing it. Anyone with a dog know?

Mouthing earthworms.... how gross can you get?

After the Utah Mighty 5 Tour All We Got Was a Bath

Our owner went on a tour of Utah's National Parks, the Mighty 5 they call them. We didn't get to go. We went to Running Pond Acres, our Doggie Country Club. Now I like that but was looking forward to when our owner returned and brought us TREATS and GIFTS!

So she returned and we were happy to be home. But no TREATS and GIFTS materialized. Hmm. She brought out her souvenirs, five Mighty 5 refrigerator magnets:

Dogs don't care about Refrigerator Magnets
She had a great time and should have brought us something. But she didn't!

So today she got out our old treat box and invited us in to.... TAKE A BATH! I wasn't expecting that. But both Francesca and I were pretty good about having our baths knowing treats would follow. And, it was a sunny day to dry off in the back yard. So all we got from her trip was a BATH!

Here we are all clean and fluffy!
So that's all the excitement for the day!

Love, Cinnamon
