Beauty and the beast!

Hi Ho!
 My Lovelies!

 Hope I didn't give you a fright...mwahahahah!
 Some times a girl just has to get down and get dirty!
Do you like my mud pack?
They say it's good for the skin and nose!
 Digging holes is my specialty and when I have supervision...man...I dig!
 and dig...
 and dig....
and dig!
 Some peeps were worried about me getting too much sand in my fur or even in my eyes...
well...one can never have enough from my view.
As you can see, I am always in the rinse mode as soon as I reach China!
~~~Off to the ocean for a dunk, a good cooling off and de-sanding~~~
The car is well-prepared for my onslaught
with blankies and towels,
never can have enough of those,
besides the guys have got my back, for that matter my whole body!
Hope I've put your worries to rest 
or at least at ease.
Must finish off this hole,
I just know there's something down there!


  1. I know Soph! I have seen that 'tranced' look in your face when you are digging like there's no tomorrow!

  2. Zippy says...dig away...it is his favorite sport too.

  3. Good Morning, Sophie! Have you ever dug up any human type treasure? Like jewelry, or coins or anything a human would like to find? You do dig some mighty big holes! Carry on!

  4. Oh there is nothing better than digging holes in the sand
    Benny & Lily

  5. Sophie, Thanks for taking me to the beach while I enjoy my morning coffee. You have a great life.


    Ciaooooo Sophie & Ron, I am back and the first thing I want to say: Thank You so much for your lovely words you left in Tuscany....!!!!!!

    Oh waoaw....Sophie and Ron...your blog just became highly artistic and absolutely elegant and class and superbeautiful and I'd say:

    A real HIT!!!!!

    Oh, Laccaille and I missed a world of your adventures....but we are catching up and look both fascinated at these GORGEOUS FOTOS...., just a JOY FOR OUR 4 EYES....

    Un abbraccione
    ciao ciao laccaille & elvira

  7. You are a champion hold digger, Sophie, and deserve a trophy for your efforts.

  8. That last picture is hilarious!

  9. That last photo is priceless!! Hope you're practicing your Chinese, Sophie!!

    -Gizmo, Bart and Ruby

  10. Oh Sophie you`re a star ! loved that last photo- the hole is so big you nearly disappear down it !

  11. Oh, Sophie, I love digging, too! It aggravates me to no end when Dad fills my hole back in, too! One day I am going to get to China, though. If I had an ocean to take a dip in afterwards, well, my life would be perfect.


    P.S. I didn't mean for you to feel bad about the award. Some dogs and people don't like to do awards on their blogs, and I completely understand that. Sometimes, though, it's just nice to share about things that you admire about others!

  12. Sophie, I mean this in the nicest possible way. You remind me of the proverbial ostrich with her head buried in the sand.

    ^5! That's good thing! I love ostriches!

    Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
    Stumpy and me

  13. Hey Sophie, you should have kept going with that hole in the sand. At the rate you were digging, you could have dug a tunnel to Singapore and visit Miss Maple!

  14. I dig you sprinkled with sand!

  15. Sophie, you crack me up!! By the look on your face, you mean business. I just don't understand why Ron and Jim won't help you dig.. you could get done a lot faster.. ;-)

  16. Soph, you are a CHAMPION hole digger. And you're right, can you ever get too dirty? We have to have half baths....just our legs and skirts when we come back from the river anyway, so may as well go whole hog.

    So have fun!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

    Our car is full of stuff....but that's what vacuums are for.

  17. You look like you're having a blast digging in the sand, Sophie!
    What a cool header photo!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  18. Beauty treatments may be beneficial, but they are certainly scary looking. The end results are beautiful, Sophie!

  19. Hi Y'all,

    What did you find down there Sophie? China?

    I'm with you about liking your nature peaceful.

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  20. I love watching dogs enjoy the sand and water! Looks like Sophie had a great time!

  21. OOh yeah, now THAT'S a hole!!

    Woofs & hugs,

    ~Bailey (Yep, I'm a girl!)

  22. Ever think about hiring out with a fencing crew? You'd make a great post hole digger.
    I love these shots - sand flying everywhere. And the new header is very arty.

  23. Ok... am I the only one that thinks you look like Buffalo in pictures #2 & 3? :)

  24. BOL! That was a good 'ostrich with head in sand' pose there Sophie :P

    Keep diggin it darlin :D

    Waggin at ya,

  25. Sophie, we just love looking at all of your pictures! You go to the most beautiful places. And of course, there's beautiful you as well! We love the texture and color of your fur! Keep having fun and keep cool out there!

    Elyse and Riley

    P.S.--Did you lose your orange ball?? Oh noooooooo!!!

  26. Where are you going there, Sophie?
    Dig a little more to the west and you can come over and visit us in Oregon...BOL!
