Happy Boofus Day!

We hereby declare March 2nd Boofus Day, and to celebrate, Scrappy got to take a walk in some of the first halfway decent weather since Pete Carroll thought passing was a good idea!  We started with a march to the trails...




Making friends with a lady Lab along the way.  But that was just the beginning...





He honestly plowed a hole with his nose and peed in it at one point!  Again, just the beginning..


IT'S BARK PARK TIME!




Talk about a suspicious line-up...


Scrappy ran and played harder than he was in a long time, especially with that dog to the right.  She was half-Beagle, and they played u-hump-me, I-hump-u, dancing at each other, running about... Scrappy even got snuck up on, drawing a brief but loud ROW-ROW-ROW!


Speaking of beagles, one of the fun things I set aside for MWN was the latest list of the AKC most popular dogs, and the poor beagle slipped a notch this year to #5.  They got passed by the Bulldog at #4.  Labs remain #1, followed by the German Shepherd and Golden Retriever, and afterwards by Yorkies, Poodles, Boxers, French Bulldogs, and Rottweilers.


And, speaking of dogs, KC and I had 5 more of our hockey teams drop out of the season hunt.  Not surprisingly, when the Polish playoffs started, KC's Katowice team went home.  They collected a 2-46-0 record, getting beat by an average of around 9-2.  Both our Belarussian squads, Lida and Brest, are out without benefit of postseason after combining for a 21-65-20 record.  KC's KHL squad in Niznekamsk had a bit of a comeback in the end, but missed the playoffs with a 17-29-14 mark.  And KC's Asia League entry, the Nippon Paper Cranes from Kushiro, Japan, just missed the postseason despite a 17-16-15 record.


Oh, speaking of KHL playoffs, my Lokomotiv team drew Dynamo Moscow- the Yankees of the KHL- for a second straight year.  Last time, we upset them, and they were the #1 team.  This year, they are just behind Red Army and St Petersburg, and after losing the first game, we have beat them twice- all three games were 2-1.  (OOPS, Moscow won the opener 3-1, my bad.)  In today's game, we missed a game winner on a penalty shot just after the OT started... but my boy Danil Apal'kov netted the game winner 10 1/2 minutes in to put us up two games to one.

  2. Any day spent with dogs is a good day; I love beagles.My grandmother had several litters of beagles when I visited her as a child and they were the best dogs. I wish she could have kept every one of them.

    Good news - the poodle is still on the list. I'll tell Coco.

    1. I was pupped with a beagle. They're in my blood, too.

  3. Looks like a good time! My dogs are all babies. They refuse to go out in the snow. When I take them out to pee, they whiz on the very first concrete step, and then just run back inside to lay on the couch. At this point I'm almost wondering if I just have a bunch of oversized cats.

    1. Scrappy would gladly drag me out in a blizzard if it meant a walk. Fortunately, one of us has a functioning brain.

  4. Chris:
    Love the Scrappy shots...
    (even dug his own "latrine"...lol)

    Sometimes the snow can be more than just something to shovel...or get stuck in while driving.

    Hope you got as much fun out of this as Scrappy did.

    Stay safe & warm up there, brother.

  6. Good thing you're calling it "Boofus" Day. Because the "doofus" in the White House may have objected.
