View Full Version : Springtime in the city!

The snow is melting! Yay!!!! Except that means it's really gross for walking the dogs. Gracie especially is so fluffy and low to the ground - it doesn't make a difference if we avoid puddles or not. These are some pictures following our walk yesterday. No - they weren't splashing around in puddles of mud. :sl*p:

Dirty is an understatement.

Feeling sorry for themselves after their bath, debating if the walk was worth it.

My oh my...

Even a dirty cav is a cute cav :cool:

Oh my GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ah maybe you need to train them to walk on a treadmill inside or something LOL. Fletcher loves to walk but if that's the way he comes in every walk I don't know what I would do.

Cute even if dirty:)

Wow that is dirty! Guess it's that special slush/mud mix... ugh!

hahah! This is definitely the most extreme case, usually I can manage just running them under the bathtub faucet - this required a full bath with multiple shampoos.

I saw this the other day on the "Meanwhile in Canada" facebook page, and it's definitely the best way to describe it:

So cute, and they are like my Kirra, she sadly comes home looking as if she has been out all night, and the bath becomes essential, much to her disdain :(

I can sympathize with you, my youngest is very hairy and shorter in the leg, but even he does not come home quite as dirty as that, he desperately needs a bath but I am waiting for the weather to warm up.
