Ball time!

It was raining yesterday, so instead of a walk the peep was playing ball with me. It was heaps of fun, and much more.. successful than usual.

See, usually when I try to play with a toy or the peep Floyd gets all jealous and takes the toy or if its the peep sits on her or squishes himself between her and I.

Yesterday he was distracted by the other peep so I got some good, solid play time in, the peep made a video...

The peep keep going on about how cute my bouncing bottom is when I run (What's with that?!)
The squeaking you can hear is Floyd playing with the other peep.

While I'm talking about rain, where there is rain there is water, where there is water there is MUD. Where there is mud there is... Dougall...

Sadly, where there is a muddy Dougall there is a... bath... *sigh*


  1. Wow! that looks like you had lots of fun with the ball. Not so sure about the bath though. You'd better think it through next time mate!

  2. Roxy and Bella came running when they heard the squeaky toy. We got rain, but we mostly slept and THEN SHE tried to turf us out in it before we went to bed. We did NOT comply.

    We didn't have much mud around because it's been so dry. Sometimes a bath is worth it, though.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  3. Ah the dreaded connectivity in the world....rain...mud....bath.....so not fair. Looks like you had fun playing ball

  4. Dougall there no mistaking it...... you are the King Of Mud. LOL funny! Pity about the bath. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. We wouldn't miss a bouncing bottom in the world. I'm sorry you had to face the bath. It must have been awful.

  7. It looked like you were having so much fun playing ball! Too bad about the rain...boooo. You do have a cute little bouncing bottom! :)

  8. I really enjoyed your video of you playing ball. I sat in front of the yaptop and watched the whole video. I looked around the back of it to see if you were there but No… you were just on my screen. Have a fun and muddy day.

  9. OH MUD! Mud is the very very best. You look fabulous!


  10. Oh it is so worth a bath to get in some quality mud time!!

  11. ain't nothing wrong with a MUD bath Dougal! And my mum says she thinks your bouncing bottom is cute too...sheesh!

  12. I think one of the advantages of being a black Scottie is that the mud doesn't show. My peeps say that I'm wrong.

  13. Oh well, all good things must come to an end!

  14. What is with our humans...every time we get all beautiful and muddy they have to go and ruin it with a bath...grrrr!


  15. One of the things I like best about having a black dog is that dirt doesn't show up on him. The video of Dougall playing with the squeaky ball got my dogs all riled up!

  16. Oh no mud on that lovely white fur?!?

  17. We loved your video, Dougall, and we came racing into the computer room when we heard the squeaky toy!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  18. Your VIDEO is WONDERFUL buddy. BUTT WHY OH WHY do peeps think that the words MUD and BAFF go together???

  19. OMD!! Dougall you are just ADORABLES when you run!! I have to agree with your peeps on that one!!
    And I couldn't stop barkin' at the squeaky toy!!! I thoughts Ma was teasin' me, butts it was just Floydie teasin' me!!! BOL
    Tell him 'hey dude' from me okays?

  20. The picture above reminds me of my favorite childs book. I think it was called, "Harry the dirty dog."

  21. Cute muddy Dougall!

  22. Dude, our mom just LOVES your videos! She watches & re-watches them and then sends them on to our grandpawrents to watch too. We're starting to think she may love you more than us...just sayin'

  23. Wow you look very muddy - perhaps you could try pass yourself off as a cairn to avoid the baths?! Typits has a cairn and barely a day goes by without someone commeting "oo what a dirty westie, looks like someone needs a bath!"

    Looks like you had some great ball time too!

  24. mud is the sign of a good time. Shame that the b-word usually follows. Be brave my friend!

  25. NO!!!! Not the dreaded Bath! Run! Run!

  26. Now, see, this is where I think the two legged ones let us dow - why not let us just enjoy the mud for a few days???? Why does the bath even have to factor into it?



  27. Dougall you sure make mud look good :-)

  28. You make a great video star Dougall. I like your bouncing bum, it adds such great character to your stardom. Mud oh no equals bath, Bah Humbug!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog

  29. Hey Dougall, you're pretty good with the ball.
    We enjoyed your video but were a bit confused by Floyd's squeaky toy - it sounded as though he was inside our house. I had a little growl about that!


  30. You know.....one thing leads to another!! very cute!
