Shizuku


Shizuku lives with Isis and Denali.  He seems to like the cats pretty well, though it seems he mostly ignores them.  He will play with Denali from time to time.  He is happy and playful and loves being outside.  Shizuku is of two minds about water.  When it comes from hoses or sprinklers or falls from the sky, it is something to be played in and enjoyed, especially if it makes lots of lovely mud.  If water comes in the form of a bath, he hates it.

                                  Shizuku just loves to play in the mud.
                                  He can't really help it; it's in his blood.
                                        He then gets a bath,
                                        Which incurs his wrath,
                                  But that never stops him from playing in mud.

Shizuku is very handsome. His affection for mud sounds like a lot of life's vices- they cost you in the end and you have to weigh they against how much you enjoy them.

That's adorable!! Aren't all dogs like that? Dixie loves water, especially out of a hose, but baths, eh, not her favorite thing.

Shizuku, I hate baths, too! But I can see where you would love to roll in mud!
