I do not know what it is about water, but it seems that whenever Buddy is freshly groomed he is more apt to walk through mud puddles or he will run through sprinklers. If he needs grooming he is more likely to avoid things like sprinklers. I guess he just enjoys that wet dog smell.
Day 237 of my photo a day project was taken while Buddy and I were walking through the park. If you look closely, behind the mist of the first sprinkler you can see the white tip of Buddy’s tail. He was pretty well soaked by the time we got home.
