Belle has this new thing. This "New Thing" that I do not think is very funny. But she finds it very amuzing and entertaining. Belle also has an obsession. An obsession that I think is a bit out of control. You see, Belle absolutly loves the water. She can not get enough of it. When the Cowpokes take baths, she is right there hoping they will splash. Then Belle found this "New Thing". It's called the Ditch.Yes, that is Belle, Miss Thang taking a breather. Can you see her black legs? Yes, the ditches here are a bit stagnant. So, the water and mud turn this stinky black goop. "What? You talkin to Me?" She is so nasty and dirty. "What? I was talkin to you!" Belle doesn't like to be bosses around. She thinks she is the boss lady. Here she comes. We got her now!! Oh and then there she goes, again. Sigh...... (okay, I love her ears in that picture!)The start off is always a bit slow, but the Belle will kick it up a gear and really get going. Becuase playing in the ditch is the best thing since sliced bread!It's a lot more fun the faster you run and the more water you splash everywhere. Let's just think of this as our mosquito control. With all the movement of the water, the mosquitos can't nest in it. Right? Now she is at Mache speeds. Super Belle Dog!! Do you think she is having fun? I think she is having a blast! Now if the ditch water would smell a little better, I would be in business. Because let me tell ya, nothing smells worse than a wet dog that got wet from playing in a stinky Louisiana ditch. But this is an every day occurance. Lot's of Doggie Colonge. The End!
