The ground is thawing. The earth becomes mushy. It rains.
Mush becomes muddy slush- mulush? slud?
This calls for a change of routine for my dogs. Those with muddy paws must cue up to a bucket before entry into the house is permitted. You know those little slivers of bar soap that are too small for shower duty? I've got a mesh bag full of 'em! Swish that bag in a bucket of warm water and... instant foot bath!
After the muddy paw is immersed in water I use either my fingers or a washcloth to rub out all the offending mud. Follow up with a big fluffy towel and we have paws fit for indoor use.
What mud busting methods have you tried, and which do you recommend?
