WATER in phrases which are read across and down featuring unnumbered and unclued spaces --- I think GOOD ONES: River phenomena (or what literally happens six times in this puzzle)
WATER + FALLS [literaaly the water falls because they are Down answers] Breed canines?

THEUN Broke ground
I found this very difficult doing it in the doctor's waiting room this morning (that's why I'm late today. I do have access to the puzzles a day or so in advance to help in these posts and will attempt to use the service next time. I prefer solving puzzles by pen rather than by keypad.) Anyway, it was fun trying to figure out what to do.
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
