Do you allow your dog to...

If it was warmer there is this humongous puddle just filled with mud that I was going to let my dogs play in. What are everybody else's opinions on it? Do you allow your dog to romp in icky things? Of course, we always get baths afterwards. Heehee!

I always allow it. It's fun to watch them and they enjoy it so much (not Ky ), I think it's a big part of being a dog. Besides, it's just mud and they're washable

It all depends, if he finds it before I do then it's fair game, if I find it before him, I try to distract him away from it!

Sometimes I do that too, such as when Ginger tries to roll on dead animals/bugs right after she gets a bath!!

We live in Germany - it rains A LOT!!!!!! Yes.....she's got her own towel at the door! If she's stinky wet, then bath time. If it's just wet, she gets toweled down. There have been a couple times she's gotten 2 baths in a day! I'd say a good day for her!

Bad Ginger Bad!!! Eeeeew!!!!! When I was a kid we had this horrible mix, Basset x corgi, she would roll in EVERYTHING, she was an escape artist, and when we'd get her home she would smell terrible, I can't even begin to describe the stench!!! Now, the reason I say horrible mix, she was 75lbs LONG, she had the basset size and length ears, and the corgi legs. Poor girl had to have her ears tied up in a pony tail when we walked her so she wouldn't step on her ears. So on those escape days, not only would she smell like everything rottin, her ears would be bleeding too!

I am a bad dog owner... I encourage her to run and play in puddles/mud. I figure you only live once and she loves it so much!
