Now that we're in mid-March with warming temps, the mud is becoming more of an issue. Because in Rosie's eyes, mud=fun, I have learned to deal with it the best I can.
I keep some old towels by the patio door and wipe off the worst (top layer?) of the mud from her feet when she first comes in, then I have her hightail it to the bathtub. I throw a treat or two in there and she willingly jumps in. Most of the time I just use the hand held shower on her feet and lower legs and that does the trick. It is amazing how MUCH dirt comes out from between the toes and off the back of the legs! Sometimes it takes quite a while to get the water to run clean, and it seems like she really doesn't mind the warm water and the attention.
