Sneaky Lucy

So today started out pretty well. That was until we left Lucy outside for a little too long. You would think she was some sort of scent hound by the way she acts. She found another pile of something smelly and decided that she wanted to roll around in it for a while. I thought it was just on her back and stomach so that is the only placed I washed. Oh no, it was all over her neck and paws and lots of other places. As a result Lucy and I have both had four partial baths today.

You should have seen the look on her face as I was washing her. She does not like taking baths outside. I should have gotten a picture but I had my hands full with a stinky great dane.

She is six now. She still seems like a child to me but with all of the grey hair on her muzzle it seems like she is pretty old.

Oh, how I can relate to this post!! :-) Honey is constantly on the lookout for something stinky to roll in too - if we don't stop her, we would be bathing her every day! We usually let her have a good roll the day before her bath but gosh, sometimes we even regret that when we have to take her home in the car afterwards...once she found a huge pile of fresh sheep poo and was covered in green slime afterwards!!

I so agree also about feeling like they're still a "baby" even though they look like a grey old lady! :-) Honey and Lucy must be about the same age, I think?
