Hounds and their Noses and Meeting up with My Life with Dogs PDX
After what seemed like forty days and forty nights of rain, there was finally a clear spot in the forecast and we headed to 1000 Acres to meet up with another blog friend. My Life with Dogs PDX
brought her dog Sherman to hike with Mr. N. He is always thrilled to go running about with new dog pals.
Sherman was a little shy at first but he warmed up to Mr. N and the two of them were playing chase in the meadow after a while. We took more of the wooded trails than usual to avoid the large groups of dogs congregating on the busier trails.
Then we went down to the river and far from getting cleaner, the dogs just got dirtier. The dogs found a particular spot in the mud that must have smelled entrancing because they both took turns rolling in it. Mr. N in particular looked like Pig-Pen afterwards. More dirt than dog.
Mr. N went home to a well-deserved bath. He says hanging out with hounds is great because they find the stinkiest smells!
