i guess ipropagate also because my black sweater sometimes l@@ks like that when my wife doesn't tell me or helps me by shaking her hand over my shoulders. the worst part is when she takes her finger with a bit of saliva and cleans my dirty face cheeks. hate it when that happens.

hope you're having a lovely holday
because isn't there twelve days of christmas?

ciao!

Nice dog!

Hij heeft het er maar druk mee.

Bethany Carson said...

At first I was afraid he had cock-o-burs stuck to him. Thankfully it looks like he is helping propagate a more pleasant plant.

Johnny Appleseed, was there a film with this name? I remember it from way back in the 1950"s!!! Baron, his eyes say he is deep in thought for his next project, lovely shining coat, and seeds for decoration maybe? Lovely close-up. Jean.

My dog would LOVE running through that!

I love how shiny he is.

KB Bear said...

Good job, Baron! You're helping those plants with their planting!

PS - Have you noticed that the pop-up comment form is now making us type reCaptchas after we check the "I'm not a robot" box? It's driving me nuts. The embedded forms don't have this annoying required feature.

Michelle said...

Awwww.....

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

It's a thankless job, just ask some of your bird visitors. He's a handsome lad with just a touch of grey.

Mary said...

He's a hard worker as well as a beautiful boy!

Fireblossom said...

Yay Baron!

KB Bear said...

This is my test of skipping the "I'm not a robot" form.

Randy said...

Too cute.

Pallavi Puri said...

He is a handsome fella!

Rick Watson said...

We used to have a black lab that looked like this one. He was a GREAT dog. We really miss that critter.

Annesphamily said...

How we love our pets! My hubby had a black lab mix his grandfather gave me when we were first married. He adored that dog and Spats adored him. He had white paws! LOL! He was a gentle dog and so good when our kids were small. You have a real handsome fellow here. Such glorious photos too! I came by to wish you a beautiful Happy New Year 2015! Take care and it is always a pleasure to see you here and say hello. Hugs, Anne

Rory Bore said...

Ha - my kids usually come back from a nature walk looking the same. but with more mud. also burrs.

Paul said...

Baron is certainly a good looking fellow even if he is covered in seeds!

One of my dogs goes out gets wet, muddy or seeded up on purpose because he knows I'm going spend time fussing around cleaning him up and he loves the attention!

Beatrice Euphemie said...

He's so beautifully nonchalant! Love his gorgeousness! xo

pattisjarrett said...

Baron of the Grass Seed? He's handsome, and hard at work!

Margaret Adamson said...

Rita said...

Good dog, Baron! :)

Farm Girl said...

He looks very nice with seeds all over his face. :)

Terry and Linda said...

At least he has slick fur...those long hair types get wads of the stuff in their fur!
