This morning Lou and I decided that the morning walk should be longer than usual. One of the nice things about my neighborhood is that there is a huge are of undeveloped land nearby.

The shortcut through the trees was a bit muddy, and Lou waited patiently while I slipped and slogged through it all.

Once past the trees, we broke out into the clearing along the bayou.

About a quarter mile down the bayou, Lou continued his goal of getting as messy as possibly.

Hot, wet, and muddy, it was time to head back.

Mmmm…. nothing compares to that wet dog smell… it’s shampoo time!
