Mad Mungo

By dalischone  
Here's another pic of mad Mungo! I've been trying for the past few days to get a decent action shot of him running around like a mad man and was quite pleased with this one (hand held). He's not scared of anything, he ran through a freezing cold stream to get across it today and was nearly up over his head!! You can see some of the water drops flying off in this photo. Here was me worried about him and about to take him home for a rub down but it just didn't seem to bother him - lol!

Thanks for looking.

Tracy (and Mungo - lol!)
