Dirty Dog

In dogs, Golden Retriever, Humor, pets on May 21, 2016 at 3:15 pm

I haven’t taken our Golden Retriever, Rudy, to Norwalk’s Cranbury Park for several years. I used to take him all the time, but then we fenced in our yard to cut down on his daily escapes, romps through the neighbors’ yards, and mad dashes across busy streets. Instead of going to the park, we’d open the back door, throw out some biscuits, and out into the yard he’d go. I would occasionally still take him to the park, but then I stopped because he always got dirty … much dirtier than any of the dozens of dogs there at any time.

Today, though, I had him in the car with me and we were in the neighborhood of the park, so I decided to take him. Cranbury Park allows dogs to be off-leash in an area called “The Orchard,” as well as on the trails. I figured that now that he was eight years old, he would be slower than he was when he was a puppy, and I’d be able to stop him before he jumped in the creek.

I was wrong.

I'm not dirty enough yet. 05212016

That sure was fun!

It was worth it, even if I have to have a bath now.

  1. OMG… This just happened to me with my Lagotto, Theo. And he’s a WHITE dog! I figured I could walk him into the shower before my husband saw him – and then my husband showed up at the park. He was furious with both the dog and me!

    • What is it with husbands? No senses of humor when it comes to filthy dogs.

      • You’d think men would be more apt to say, “Boys will be boys” or Dogs will be dogs, or some such thing.” But instead he said, “How COULD you?” (Of course, he is 70 and has never changed a diaper.)

  2. Haha! It’s not like YOU rolled Theo in the mud! Why do men care when our dogs get dirty when we’re going to clean them up?

  3. Rudy looks like he needs an exorcism in that first picture.
