Mud and Muck

Summer has definitely ended, and with Autumn brings the rain, and with the rain comes the mud! Being a short dog, I am of course closer to the ground which means I get mud everywhere!

It ends up in my armpits in my tail fluff, bum fluff, on my feet, up my chest, in my ear fluff. Anywhere close enough gets covered. This walk down near our river was where I first met mud and puddles.

At first I absolutely hated it. I would walk round puddles, and would never dream of walking through anything so dirty.

I still have a little bit of that left in me, if there is a choice to go round or jump over I will. I have made a few mistakes in my life trying to jump over a puddle and ended up in them (which I am not too happy about)

Every now and then though you just have to walk right through the middle of a nice brown mush! It does feel nice and cool on your feet when it is warm. It is just normally when it is muddy it isn’t warm and I don’t need extra cold by getting muddy feet! At least for now the mud is minimal, I am hoping winter isn’t too mushy though.  I am happy as a clam without the muddy puddles, fox poop is much nicer to roll in!

There are too many dangerous things for a little doggy. With cutters and big sticks and all horrible saws! Still they say it makes it look pretty in Summer again, so I guess I don’t mind.

Well winter is on its way, and I hope it isn’t too cold.

How muddy do you get?
