Got a water-biter!

This is a big deal because none of my Airedales since the first has delighted in biting the water running from a hose. What an opportunity to get extra wet and muddy! (For both me and the dog.)

Miro discovered the hose when I carried the chicken waterer across the yard to refill it. The chicken pen is a very attractive place, as it contains yummy chicken poop that dogs are not allowed to get at. The flappy, squeaky toys that produce the poop are of secondary interest. Not only did the metal waterer come from this delightful place but also it had some of those gourmet treats on top.

You know what it's like to try to get some domestic chore done while trying to keep mini-jaws-of-death away. You hurry, you scramble to get it done as quickly as possible, you dance a jig in your attempts to keep the wanted object(s) away from the dog.

When I turned on the hose, Miro was already pepped up. Snap. He backed up a couple of paces in surprise. He launched forward. Snap snap snap. Water, water everywhere....


  1. We've never been water biters, Miro, but we bet it's fun! Did you face get soaked?

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

    I, Lucia, am a molto enthusiastic aqua snapper -- in fact, la mia ragazza can barely get the flower beds watered because I keep jumping in to nip. Heeeeeeee....!!!

    Tanti baci!

  4. Miro, you really are a young whipper snapper! tee hee.
    Chicken poo sounds so tasty. Never had any of that stuff. Nice you want to help your mommy clean up!!

    ps-We think the problem must have been with blogger as you said. It seems okay now. Thanks!(Missed you & Alanis at the hot tub---was that you under the waterfall at the pool??)

  5. Holly likes water from a daisy sprinkler we have. She thinks it is great fun. :-)

  6. Good work Miro,
    Rufus likes to alter rubber, try that. Tire nipple things are fun too.
    Hey there what is a Miro? Big Stud?

  7. Oh, yes, aire-snaps at the water hose are great fun! And it's even MORE fun if you can get a human all wet!
