    I really like these spots on Maggie's nose. They're extra cute

    Evil hound ate one of her beds today. The newest one of course.

    Should have seen it coming - I ignored her just a little bit too long at walk/dinner time. Sigh.

    Ha ha .....i always say start how you want it to be..or you will be sorry. hard to unteach, unless you are there........

    We have two couches that are filled with dogs, I like it that way....we just have blankets on top of them and move those when we have visitors.....i do however like my dogs to get off when asked and when we are there they only get on when we allow, so visitors and us do not get pushed aside by newfies . But if we are not there, I know they do what they want.
    Pets are forever

    I wish, Margoo...

    it's not just the new dog bed (which I must repair) but also my shoes at risk.

    Today I didn't realise she was enthusiastically rolling on one of my sandals. I think she fetched it but I was busy. Eventually she came and whacked me with the big sneaker and that got my attention.

    Daylight savings ending doesn't help. I keep telling her she's early but she doesn't believe me.

    For the opening poster (OP) - I also have a path of bath mats from the back door into the house, catches some of the mud, and on particularily bad days - I have a rag next to the back door that I can wipe her feet with.

    My training guru - Susan Garrett - tried to train her dogs to put their feet into a sort of dog foot scrubbing tube things that seem to be essential in Canada mud season. I don't think it worked.

    Thanks, missing her atm as we are away for 5 weeks. Currently in Morocco, very cool place.

    I loved Morocco!! When you go to the bazaar in Marrakech stay a little longer if you can. When the market closes the square in front transforms. There were bonfires and music. And acrobates, fire-breather and alike from the villages who try to make a little cash. Its quite dark and lots of people so keep your wallets close but its a very surreal atmosphere and very different to the quite touristy bazaar.
