Soggy Boggy Boys
« on: August 14, 2005, 06:07:48 am »
You know about the group "Brother where art thow" and the Soggy bottom boys?

Well this is my soggy boggy boys!  Bryce went running at a full pace and hit a bog hole.  VERY VERY deep and no bottom.  It was plain ole heck getting him out.  Rob pushed while I pulled.

Nasty nasty mess.  It was right at the beginning of the walk too. Bryce and Monty decided to continue the walk.  Monty is ever so hyper he could care less we were having to pull Bryce out of the muck.    ::)

All went well even though Hubby had to walk without his shoes.   :)

Wow great shots, great looking boys.  Where in the world do you live where you get those black ugly, soggy bogs? Oh Brother Where Art Thou is truly one of my favorite of all time movies.  I still play the soundtrack even on my computer over and over.  Thanks for sharing

Thanks for the compliments on our boys!  They are the apple of our eye beside our brand new grandbabies! 

We live in Southeast Alaska.  We have major amounts of muskeg.  This is because we live in a temperate rain forest.  So you can be walking along and literally fall into a bog hole.  Get this, the area you see is the only "official" off leash park for dogs.  We go there because no one ever goes there.  Who wants to clean up muddy dogs after a good romp?

Well, we are going to stake off the bog holes we find with string and flags.  The boys won't go through them if they see them and it will also let others know about the holes. 

As for running the boys there, it is very good on their muscles.  The entire area is soft, not mushy but soft, and it's like running on thick carpeting!!

Hubby had to plant his feet in the side wall going up to his knees to get his arms under Bryce's rear end, I was in front with my arms wrapped around his front shoulders and pulled.  This is the first time the boys missed a bog hole.  It was scarey.  Bryce was hanging on the edge looking at me like, "Mom, I falled in a big hole.  Can you helped me?"
