Oh yes, I know that lesson well, reminds me of the time I took my dog to the park so she could chill out after a day at the groomers. Little monkey headed straight into the muddiest part of the river. haha clean for an hour, me=stupid human ;(
I am lucky. The lab does not need grooming like a long-haired dog. And because we are chocolate, we don’t show the dirt…you just don’t want to be down wind! When it’s bath time (warm weather only), we do it in the back yard.
