Squelching in the Rain

After Rose and our fluffy-pawed spaniel Tilly came back from their walk across the muddy fields this morning, Tilly composed the following and asked me to share it, because it might help other canine readers to know they are not alone.

A Muddy Spaniel’s Lament

Rose’s supposing my toeses need hosing
Shows Rose is supposing erroneously.
‘Cause nobody’s toes can need quite as much hosing
As Rose is supposing my toeses to need!

You can’t see me, but I can see you!

I met this fellow on a walk today. Isn’t he magnificent?

He seemed very placid, but I was grateful that there was a fence between us, unlike the time when I met one of his cousins a few years back.
