Dirty Dogs

Yesterday I showed you the lovely painting & photo of Lucy - it's a good thing I didn't have to send any photos taken today!
Mr C & I took the dogs for a long walk - we are fortunate in that we can just walk out of the front door & along the lane which means that they don't need leads - they are both good dogs & never run off.
Unfortunately the lane is rather muddy with big puddles of water & Lucy likes to go through every single one of them! Toby is a bit of a wimp & doesn't like getting his feet wet! As you can see in the next photo, Lucy runs straight through the muddy puddles but Toby runs along the dryer grass...




Ohno! My feet are wet!


Lucy investigating a ditch - I can't believe that she is 10 years old with no signs of slowing down. She did find a dead fox but I thought I'd better not show you that!




Oh it's going to be fun washing all that out of her coat - even her ears are dribbling mud!




These dogs are far cleaner! I found these three recently & had to adopt them - I think I'm turning into my Great Aunts who always had display cabinets full of china animals & nick-nacks....Granny (or Aunty) Chic?

  1. Oh my, been there done that! Our beagle came in the other day with skunk smell! In the bath he went with tomato juice. It has been 2 weeks and she STILL has alittle of the smell.

  2. That's one muddy doggy hehe. But she looks like she was having a whale of a time. What a lovely lane to have right by your house.

  3. Oh yes, a springer certainly knows how to get muddy! Ours especially likes the thick black mud you get by a river when the tide is low, and boy, does that stink!

  20. Our Kipper would have been dripping too - not to mention smelly. He liked to find yucky stuff and then roll in it. ;-)

    Your china dogs are very pretty.
