We passed a really good mud puddle and gave our obedient dog the instruction to 'leave it' and follow us, didn't look back to check, and had a nice surprise when she caught up to us.
Now, I ask you. What does any self-respecting dog do if she's all wet and muddy?
Yep, she gives herself a good shake. Too bad if a nicely-dressed human is standing close by.
So, while Human Number Two headed off to the City in her brown-spot polka-dot outfit, I took Penny for a second walk, to swim in the Yarra river at Warringal Parklands.
I made sure to put a towel in the car before I let her in.
And, voila, clean dog!
