Water horses

Every time the DOR tries to spray me down with the hose when she is filling the water tub, I run like the wind to the far corner of the pasture. I am not too cooperative with a bath either. Until yesterday afternoon I had her convinced I didn't really care to get wet. Unfortunately for me I got busted.
I was teaching my niece about the joys of eating while standing in the sprinkler. I was explaining to her that it helps keep you cool and works especially well for keeping off pesky flying bugs. We were enjoying practicing that lesson when the DOR showed up and caught me standing in the spray. Oh well, the secret is out...I love the water, now I suppose I will have to take a bath once in a while.
The other advantage of standing in the sprinkler is that if the DOR is in a bit of a hurry I get out of having to work. She has been haltering me up each evening and working with me on some of the "buggers" that bother me, one still being the grocery bag. Well I escaped last night because she needed to get to a meeting and wouldn't have time to change out of wet clothes. Hmmmm, I wonder what would happen if every time she shows up this week she finds me under the sprinklers? I wonder if I can convince the cow boss to leave the sprinklers running 24/7 in my pasture the entire summer? You don't think the DOR would show up in a wetsuit do you....
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR

Oh Jack! You are too funny! I think your DOR would find a way to dry your spotted butt off, one way or another!

Playing in the sprinklers sounds like good summertime fun!
