You can’t exactly walk a pup inside the house – it just doesn’t work that way! (And no, getting them to go for a jog on the treadmill doesn’t count.)
It is inevitable that your pup will head on out into the wide, open world for their daily exercise – and they are going to track all that dirt and dust that comes with it!
Nobody, of course, is interested in this. Keeping a house is difficult enough as it is – you don’t need more dirt coming in! So when Summer the Golden Retriever is done with her daily romp through the neighborhood, it is time for a very important ritual – the washing of her feet!
It is clear that Summer and Mom are both quite used to this. While Mom pulls out any grass seeds stuck to her fur and washes out all the mud, Summer is happy to sit patiently through the whole process. She does try to drink the water, though – which isn’t the smartest idea!
