Wow, Ruby, that's one impressive mud pack! :shock:

 

Just makes you want to hide your head in your hands when they do that :roll: L_B, there's a photo somewhere of Bellbird's Big Archie doing the same - he looks like a donkey covered in mud!

That pic was taken on the local playing field, the mud was in the goals of the football pitch! It was quite funny to see mothers grabbing their children and hastily exiting the field as she did a lap of honour. :wink:

Ahh, here are those photos of Big Archie bog snorkelling... he's a deerhound cross, so enormous but very gentle.

Imagine cleaning mud off a dog the size of a small donkey :shock:

They never actually learn that a bog session or poo rolling ends in a cold shower, do they? Although Ruby is a lot better about the poo thing nowadays, but Cyrus The Goldfish just doesn't have the capacity to learn :roll:

Hosing Tango down is such an ordeal. We have discovered that the easiest and quickest way to get the job done is for hubby to don full head to toe waterproofs, then he holds Tango tightly against him and I hose them both off! :lol: Takes 10 seconds versus 5 minutes of her wriggling and squirming all over the place if we try to use a more conventional bathing method. She then does mad zoomies until she's dried off!

Muddy plus :shock: Thankfully Lara prefers paddling in the sea and even if she does go to the woods and get her legs mucky I can easily plonk her in the sink :)

Neither of mine get THAT bad... thankfully. Depending on the outside temperature I either hose them down outside or take them up and sling 'em in the shower cubicle.

Yes he is... there is a gordon setter living round the corner from us too, and funly enough we just found out he belongs to DD3's school teacher... small world... we don't see many setters around.

 

What state are those muddy doggies in!!! I wouldn't know how to start cleaning Charlie if he was that covered in mud!! Thankfully he doesn't usually get too bad, though I once had to take him in the shower, along with DD2 in her swimsuit so she could hold him upright while I washed mud cakes from his inner thighs... the things we end up doing!!!

:roll:

When Millie coated herself in 'fox' it was freezing cold outside. It was literally dripping off her, so I had to wrap her in a bin bag, (not her head obviously), to get her upstairs and into the bath tub.

I scrubbed the bathroom so much afterwards it looked amazing.

If she drops in a fox poo, then use latex gloves to rub in some ketchup, then wash off with biological laundry liquid - works every time for my two.

Clare I'm really curious... how on earth did you find this out???

I have visions of you in a lab-type bathroom experimenting with various substances to get rid of fox poo... 'now peanut butter and cider didn't work, neither did thai curry and glass shine.... ummm... let's try ketchup and laundry liquid... I have a feeling that might work'

 

:D ???

:lol::lol: the ketchup (or white vinegar) one is folk legend amongst hound owners - those dogs are the worst for poo-rolling :roll: The Bio laundry liquid was one I hit upon myself as it banishes bad smells in washing pretty effectively. Tried and tested on Cyrus :roll:
