    Dogs and Mud!

    As many of you know, we tend to have 5 seasons in New England - much of the country has Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, whereas we have Winter, Mud season, Spring, Summer and Fall - and that got me wondering.

    How does you dog feel about mud? The more the better, good to roll in, an anathema to be avoided at all costs, or is your dog completely oblivious, and does not even understand muddy paws are not welcome on laps?

    I remember when Lolli was just a pup, she got into the garden one day during 'mud-season'. She was almost unrecognizable! And she was oh, so happy! She is still silliest when she is wet and muddy, but she no longer deliberately rolls in it.

    Now that's a mud-loving girl! I cannot even tell what color she was underneath the mud!

    I am sorry I think I would have to kill that dog LOL (just kidding!)

    and Mikey doesn't really mind the mud, but he won't roll in it. He walks right through it though, but he likes cooling off in the water when hiking so the mud tends to go away by the end of the walk.

    There are only two seasons I like. Dry and frozen. I wish I had known you were posting this Karen, I would have got a pic of Jake before we came in and hit the tub this evening. I'm sure I'll get another chance.

    Thought of this again today, the yard out back is very thinly veiled mud - I have to step VERY carefully when putting out the birdseed!

    All three dogs on Walkies head for the mud. Then when they are good & wet full of mud, they come over & shake it all over me. It is look, we want to share our mud bath with you. When we get home everyone lines up for a doggie wash down at the hydrant & then they shake water all over the place in the process.
