Mitzi was very young when I first saw her tendency to love getting messy – here she is having gotten a thoroughly messy snout after sharing some yummy nosh with her mate Otis. She remains a mud rat to this day – actively searching out the messiest places on any walk and rolling in anything and everything. Not the best characteristic for a light cream coloured dog!! Sometimes I can’t get the stains how no matter how much I hose her down. Still, she loves it.
