Oh, Look. It’s Wet Paw Season.

Day 53 of 365

I have three dogs.  That’s three sets of furry paws.  A total of 12 dog feet.

Seasons to me are not always so much about changing foliage that signals the onset of  Autumn; longer hours of sunlight during the day that tells us Spring is coming; hearing crickets and tree frogs when we enjoy a warm, early Summer evening sitting on the porch.

Seasons in my house revolve around which category the state of the dog’s feet are in after being outside:

-Dry feet mean it is Summer.

-Wet, muddy, dirty feet, all caked with sand, and goo, and gunk, let us know it is either Spring, Winter or Fall.


I love my dogs, I really do.  Can’t imagine our family without them.  But good gawd, they track a lot of whatever is going on outside into my house.  And on to my floors.  Which means we spend most of the year cleaning and wiping dirty paws.

Currently, with this warm, spring-like winter we are having, I am up to my eyeballs in muddy dog feet.

Another reason why I cannot wait for Summer.

  1. I can absolutely relate! I have 3 dogs as well. It’s cold and rainy today so there will be plenty of paw prints all over the floor when I get home. My littlest will also likely greet me at the door sopping wet. 🙂
