It's rained so much that everywhere is muddy and mired and tractors leave clarty ruts in their wake to suck the wellies of unsuspecting walkers.
I am told that some dogs don't like this and avoid getting their paws wet. No matter how many times I've explained to my beasties that this is a desirable trait in a dog they refuse to listen. As you can see from today's walk they love the dirty brown ponds that have appeared in gateways.
Me - I give up.
