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!

    Yay, we hope Mr. N has a new friend since Sage will be moving away. Oh boy, the mud…so much fun for dogs, so little for humans! We're coming into mud season here soon anyway, so we might as well just grin and bear it. LOL
    Oh, I don't think we know Sherman's blog, we'll have to go check it out.

    OMD that looks like Mr N had so much fun. Love more mud than dog LOL It's great that he liked hanging out with a new pal. Kilo might be OK walking with a pal on neutral territory like that, especially if there were good smells and treats.
