A twist on True Colour Thursday


We are still hoping Spring is going to come back soon and stick around for a while. The Momster had some workers here, and they put down some fresh mulch in our landscape beds - you know, the ones that are missing lots of shrubs and plants due to the resident canine gardener.





Yes, Mom. We are being very good - look how nicely we are posing for you and see how white our furs look against this lovely rich red mulch.
And you don't see any holes, do you?




Later in the day . . . . .







Did she go for a fancy spa treatment and pawdicure?





A closer look for you.




So what's the problem, Mom? You keep saying I am a red and white sibe - I just found a natural way to keep my "True Colours".




Woos, Ciara

Oh Ciara - you're just demonstrating doga for Tucker's contest and you applied special make-up in order to make your paws more visible to the camera!! You are SO misunderstood...

That's pretty funny! OuR mommy is amazed at how yours keeps that white carpet clean. It would look like a mess if we had it. We track in so much and then of course I do my trick with the water from my beard (Hootie doesn't drip all over like I do). You are to be commended!
Smooches,
BabyRD and Hootie

Clive said...

Ciara - that is so funny! Murray was laughing away here at your red paws!!

take care
Clive & Co

- how does your Mom keep her carpet clean??

Winnie said...

You mum is brave to have that pale carpet...or maybe she has some great cleaning tips.

Apart from the red paw thing - that mulch looks like a good idea for the humans who don't understand the concept of canine gardening.

You look beautiful as usual today

Love and licks, Winnie xx

scotsmad said...

Oh Ciara, you didn't dig in the mulch did you.

Mack said...

Mom is wondering about your pretty white carpet!!!

Mr. Pip said...

Ruh Roh - no more white carpet!

Your pal, Pip

Gus said...

Secrets to white carpets would be much appreciated here. We think the mulch looks much like the red dye that Indian brides use on the palm of their hands. Is there a surprise wedding in the future?

Ludo van Doggy said...

Hound Girl said...

Reilly / Bree said...

Frankie Furter said...

Well what did SHE expect. We know that worker GUYS never get the work done.. RIGHT. You just HAD to get that stuffs arranged Perfectly.
I LOVE the color of your paws. Proof that you did your job!! I am SURE she is really proud of your work.

Remington said...

I hear that is the style nowadays. Looks good!

Mrs. JP said...

She can't help it if some of YOUR mulch got on her pretty white feet! That color does look nice on her, it matches her nose. You know they have to christen any new, uh, digging material, don't you? After all, we're all pretty sure that you put it there just for them to play in. Right? :O)

houndstooth said...

I am sure that what happened was that the sprinklers came on and were on for a little too long, so when a certain Siberian princess walked through the mulch, completely unaware, mind you, that new mulch stained her beautiful white feet! Yep! I'm sure that's what happened!

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Ciara, you look lovely in red. It doesn't matter how it got there!

bbes tribe said...

Agreed Stumpy! Ciara looks good in red. Maybe she was at the spa and asked for a color rinse. A girl needs a change sometimes... BOL

Sue said...

Morgan, Fudge,Noah and Norma Jean complain that Mom washes their feet more than the black footed dogs. Doesn't she know they're just as dirty, it just doesn't show up. Life isn't fair!

Uh oh, Ciara!

Looks like the garden spa worked well on your paws! You sure get into interesting adventure over there all the time.

Moco said...

That is not from digging. It is from inspection of the quality of mulch. Seems OK.

Ginger Jasper said...

It looks like the new garden now has holes. MOL.. Love the picture evidence.. Hugs GJ xx

Benny and Lily said...

You better stay on your back so you don't get red feet prints all over, BOL

Sarge said...

Wow, there's the proof of a job well done! Someone has to make sure there are no ground moles or chipmunks down in that mulch. I think you did a great job! Your peeps should be very happy...just remind them that they don't want critters tunnelling in the mulch!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Kind of hard to protest your innocence, Little One! But your red "gloves" do look very ladylike. Can the carpet be saved? And the mulched areas?

KB said...

Red slippers! So beautiful! Is the garden still beautiful, sweet Ciara?

I've missed you all.

sprinkles said...

Could you maybe send those worker over my way when they're done there? I could definitely use them in my yard.

I never cared much about the back yard and haven't taken care of it like I should because I don't do anything back there other than let the chi's do their business back there. Only now I have a neighbor whose backyard links to mine. I can see she's been doing a lot of work in her yard and it looks like she's got lots more plans, if all the wood and bricks and things are any indication. So now I feel like I need to do something with mine.

That red soil really does look nice with Ciara's coat.

sagechronicles said...

Hehehe. You should see my yard! I don't have red bark, but my feet still tell on me every time. Darn feet, huh?

Stella said...

You know, Ciara, the peoples at your house all laughingly call you the little canine gardener and thats fine. But give it a try, red up the feets a little and they get upset!

Whats the deal??

Kisses,
Stella

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We have red clay here. Jan just hates red paws. :)

Lorenza said...

Pawesome!
Kisses and hugs
