Impossible to keep dogs dry when all it does is rain! Odda had a bath a couple of weeks ago, but you'd never know it! I know that when she drys off tonight, inside her kennel, she won't look so bad in the morning, but if the sun doesn't come out tomorrow will be another day like today. I brushed her yesterday, and her 3rd coat is really falling out now that it's warming up, but still more hair to come out. I can't wait until it's nice out again, so she gets a bath again. At least then she might stay clean for a few days!
She always wants to be as close to you as she can (which means she rubs and leans into you), and you don't stand a chance of staying clean!!!!! Sometimes I can keep her under control, but other times she's just too excited to see me! Hooch is dirty now too. It doesn't help that we have a lot of black dirt and sand as the new garage has not started to go up yet. Too much rain lately and our cement guy hasn't been able to get here. I can't reseed any grass until most of the construction is done. So our spring and summer is going to be messy around here. If it drys off this weekend, hopefully our cement guy will be framing this weekend or the first of the week. I know that this rain has put them behind too, so we just wait.
Working on replacing a pole here at the farm.
Grandson Blake stopped in to visit this afternoon. Leah's son, and he moves tomorrow south to his new job. He has to be at his new apartment at 8 in the morning to meet the cable TV guy to hook up his tv. Blake is real excited about his new job. He starts Monday morning as a lineman at a rural electric company.
His past 2 years experience will help, but he'll learn a lot at his new job; as his old job was construction and no "hot" lines. Now he'll be working what they call distribution, and he'll learn about rerouting power, working on installing underground, and repair of underground and overhead lines, overhead and underground transformers and there's a lot more. We're so excited and proud of him too, as he starts his new job. Good Luck Blake!
