In Kansas, in late winter/early spring they frequently burn off fields of its last season's dead growth. In the nature preserve in which we take our early morning walks, they often do the same, typically rotating the areas they burn every other or every three or more years. They probably wet down the trails' paths because those are never burned (and remain green) while it's frequently black from burning on both sides.

Puff loves to occasionally roll over on her back on green grass and do her doggie version of The Twist followed by lying down like a frog on its stomach with her legs stretched out behind her, pulling herself along with her front legs, giving her a do-it-yourself belly rub.

She's ALWAYS done that on grass before.

When we walk by burned areas, she's always stayed on the unburned trails and avoided the burned areas.

This morning she did both her Twists and belly rubs on the black, burned field grass and arose looking like a terribly brindled, awfully mismarked yellow Lab -- and smelling terribly of smoke and burnt stuff.

Fortunately, the ice has melted from the ponds we passed so I sent her in to retrieve several times and that removed most of the black and the smell.

SHEEESH, Puff!! You're too old to start pulling this crap! :rant:

Puff is just keeping you on your toes. You have been too used to the good side, so today a touch of ornery came into play. WTG Puff. Keep your dad guessing!!

Ha ha ha ha! I can laugh because Dozer thought it was great to roll in a yucky mucky swampy puddle this morning.

Bob, Must be a rebellious stage, or something she just had to do to see if she liked it.
