There’s nothing like irrigation day at Casa de Muddy Pawz. We have 16 paws, you know…8 gigantique English Mastiff stompers and 8 kitty-sized sneakers. I tore the carpet out of our house shortly after moving in, having discovered that our lot (formerly a citrus orchard) is flooded every 2 weeks. I was delighted to see “easy to clean” 1956 stained concrete under the old carpet! Well, that was before Bentley came into our lives followed by his “sissy”, Boadicca. We now have a semi-monthly water fiesta and 20 minutes later, it looks like someone has faux-painted our entire home in mud. I keep wishing I could just hose it all out through an open door, but that just isn’t happening… I throw four beach towels on the floor, cover the furniture in old blankets, light a candle and say a prayer.
