Just when Max was about dry from his bath, he had to go out to go potty. He only took ten minutes but in that time he covered himself in dirt and sand spurs. You can imagine what a Sheltie looks like with black dirt and sandspurs in his fur.
Not only does he get stickers in his fur regularly, he also gets his paws dirty, too, when he rakes dirt up with his front feet acting macho.
Then there's Molly. She gets ice cream on her chest when she eats ice cream. Such a messy dog, and her mane is nearly six inches long. She gets knots behind her ears, too.
