I’m feeling much better today. I’m sure the sun’s return has something to do with it. I bundled up and decided to take Grumps to the dog park. We are heading back to Detroit tomorrow, so I wanted him to have a great day! I know people probably thought I was crazy considering how muddy and wet everything was, but Grumps loves it and I don’t mind cleaning him up. When I first got Grumples, his original owners named him “Muddy” and I can see why. We played for about an hour running around and “playing fetch”. He doesn’t get the “fetch” concept very well. It’s more of me throwing the ball, him running after the ball, and me chasing him to get the ball. Sometimes playing with your dog and just being outdoors is better than any workout!
I piled towels in the back of my car to keep the mud off my seats. When we got back to my parents house, I walked him to the tub. He got in without a fight and I spent a good 45 minutes working the mud out of his fur.
He is usually pretty white, but the mud is starting to make him golden. In a month or so, he’ll be going in for a shave to get ready for summer!
After his baths, he runs around the house shaking and spinning in circles. It’s pretty funny! I’ll have to get it on video sometime.
