Anyway the dog, it transpires, loves water and lay down in the stream. Mum was surprised and amused and walked a very wet dog all the way home.
"I suppose it was better than walking home with poo all down your legs!" She said
I did a double take! Did she mean her or the dog?
"She had a bad tummy in the park the other day!" She explained
(Phew, she meant the dog!)
"You can just imagine how difficult that one was to scoop up off the grass!"
She continued "More of a smear really."
Eeeww, too much information mum!
