Big dogs weigh more

Lately I've been fostering mostly small dogs, and I've come to appreciate them for one thing more than anything else.  They track in a lot less mud.  A 160 pound dog like my Great Dane will sink in mud quite a bit, and then proceed to track it all over the house.  This is his "who me?" look as I pointed out the muddy pawprints he had just left across the living room.

I love Remi's look! He is a great dog. You were supposed to be waiting at the door with a towel when he was ready to come in - Mom! Don't you know that.

I agree with the above comment. I would never let Chrissy in without wiping her paws and remember how little she was? Grandma

I used to try to do that - teach the dogs to wait at the door until I wiped their paws. You have to teach a big dog to wait, because it's tough to restrain a big wet dog who just wants out of the rain without getting soaked and muddy yourself! But sometimes it is easier just to mop or steam clean after they come through. And you know me, I'm all about what is easiest. :-)
