I don’t like cold weather, but one advantage of frosty mornings is the mud takes longer to soften, so the dogs don’t get too dirty. A couple of days ago we met some friends who have a beautiful white Husky cross, and while we were talking the dogs were playing. They were up on their hind legs sparring like boxers. Ours got dirty but the Husky was literally covered in mud, the only white part left of him was his rear end!
Don’t they look sorry for themselves? This wash down was going to be the bucket and sponge instead of a quick hose down! But they do get warm water with the bucket!
