OK, it's to the point now that if he hears the tap running, I might as well be cracking a tray of ice cubes...
So, it is now officially "mud season" where we live. Bugsy scampered through every sort of goo imagineable yesterday. With a good roll in goose poop for good measure. So I left him on the porch while I drew his bath. I opened the door to let him in while the tap is still running so he bolts into the bathroom and assumes the "please boost me in" pose. corgi clean up was a snap! (and I got a new camera)
