This actually happened last weekend but Bear was so proud of himself that I couldn’t not share. Bear and I tried out a different dog park, one without a pond. There has been some surprisingly cold weather in this part of Texas lately and the water at the park was shut off. Normally not a big deal, I carry water for him to drink. And then he found a muddy puddle….
I let him play a good while longer while I considered what to do. I have a cover on my seat but no towel and no water and that’s a LOT of thick mud. The nearest dog wash was 15 minutes away but that’s still closer than home. When we finally left I was talking to a couple and they gave me a towel to help get off the worst of the mud. Nice couple with the cute bull dogs, if you are reading this THANK YOU! That mud stank but at least there was less on him when I put him in the car.
When the lady at the dog wash saw him, I got a bit of a sympathetic look but Bear was still so happy with himself. He had mud EVERYWHERE and was not happy with all the places I sprayed the water.
I really wish I could say this was the first time this has happened but its not. Honestly, it’s not even the second. Maybe I’ll learn eventually… What ridiculous things do your pets do? Do they like to find mud puddles? Have a great weekend!
