What was that? a 4 hour walk? Damn dog better leave me alone for days now!
Park up the block in under water. Ground frozen and snow trying to melt.
So, off the the park behind the supermarket, which has a fence and NO no dogs sign. Only park around that doesn't say no dogs.
OK, but wet too and no dogs to play with.
So it has been days, maybe a week since we found a dog to play with, so off to the dog park. Sometimes there are nasty dogs there and Rusty isn't thrilled by it, but I was desperate.
3 dogs there to play with. No real nasty ones!
But muddy, the dogs were filthy.
We left after 45 minutes and I walked him in the park. (not allowed, but noone was in the entire park)
As we passed the dog run, there were new dogs, so back in we go for another 30 minutes or so.
Finally they all got bored. By then they were filthy. I cleaned him off as well as I could before he went back into the car.
Took him directly to the bathtub when we got home!
Mud ran off him. I had to use soap.
I figure he had 1/2 a bath. No real scrubbing. Hope it didn't dry out his skin too much.
Not as good smelling as if I really bathed him, but at least no mud!
Then I took a bath!
Now I have about three loads of laundry. Dog towels...my pants...
Spring is going to be bad!
