During a walk with a friend and her dogs in the Phoenix Park Jaspar went right into his favourite pool of water, now basically a large mud wallow... shortly thereafter he found a nice wet deer pat and rolled in that. Spent the next hour collecting bits of leaves and grass that adhered to the mud and deer poop and his coat generally... then in a final triumphant move, on the way back to the car he found a mound of very dry horse poop and rolled in that, so it all adhered to everything else from his belly and legs down.
Here he is, delighted with himself:
Boy did he stink in the back seat on the way home. Needless to say he went straight into the shower for a thorough bath, and Leo right after.
Does anyone else's dog love to be blow dried? Jaspar always tries to stick himself in front of the stream of air when I am trying to dry Leo -- and positions himself just behind him too, to get the stray blast of warm air!
