Didn't I just take that varmint German Shepherd to the spa yesterday?
As I write, that beast is sitting in his crate covered in mud. How does he do it? His underbelly is black. His legs are black. And his feet are black. They are covered in at least a half inch of mud. (But he's still wearing his red bandana, and somehow that is clean and shiny.)
The question is, why did we even bother? He couldn't even stay clean for Christmas. The second question is, how can I let that beast outside without constant supervision. He's always getting dirty or in trouble.
I've determined it's a hopeless cause. I better go wash the floors now.
