This evening when I got home from work the puppy was waiting for me to let her in from the backyard. When I went outside to see her she ran around the grass 93 times like a crazed wild animal. The sprinklers had gone on a bit before so not only was the puppy wet she was a muddy mess from running around in the wet grass.
When we go to the dog park, she “swims” in the water bowl before running around and rolling in the dirt. That also makes for a muddy mess.
This muddy messy dog is a new concept for me. My last dog Koho was tough and protective, but she was also dainty and proper. Koho would run along the outer edges of the lawn, stepping mostly on the borders to not cross wet grass. She hated water and wouldn’t step foot in a puddle or wet dirt.
That is so not the case with the puppy. If it’s wet or muddy she finds it. Then I find it all over my downstairs floor.
This is the
rotten puppy…clean. Pictures are hard to come by when she’s a muddy mess since I’m the one who has to clean her up. Pictures are the last thing I want to do when grumbling while holding her with one arm and the hose with the other!
