The dogs were all hot and panting at the end of their bush walk, so I encouraged them to go in the water hole, or what's left of it. Big mistake!
Well not so bad for the border collies, as they are agile and can leap over the worst of the mud around the edge. Not so for Calli. She kind of floundered around on her way out. I thought it was just dirty water, and she would dry, but I was out of luck on that one.
(And you can see those impatiens still haven't moved)
So more drastic measures were called for. You can see that she has some feeling in the skin back there. The acupuncturist did explain to me how the nerves to the skin were different to the ones to the muscles. See Calli's Story
More power was needed
Good thing she has a decent Stay, as it was only me, camera in one hand and hose in the other.
Meanwhile, Luna, the hose crazy dog, had been waiting patiently.
Hey, that's my eye
I'll start back from here
Head around to one side.
See if I can sneak in and get that hose
I'm cutting in under the spray
Ooof, darn woman, ya got me in the eye again!
Let's call it a truce!
Hey, you're making it spray again
oooh, look, you're making diamonds!
But here's a lovely daylily that needs watering
Darn flowers, spoiling all my fun!
