There’s lots of things I enjoy in my life – in fact, I’m very easy to please – but absolute doggy heaven is a muddy puddle, especially when I’ve been running around and need to cool off.
The other day I found one on a walk around the playing fields near our house. It had rained overnight so it was quite deep in the middle and I had a wonderful romp, splashing in and out until I was mucky almost up to my shoulders.
In the heat – or should I say cool? – of the moment, I chose to ignore my mum’s warning that I would be washed down with cold water from the hose once we got back home. (That’s one of my hates…) It was so delicious, I couldn’t stop. Bet she’d feel the same if she were a dog.
And a good shake.
