It's that time of year. Spring has sprung.

What? Yes I realize the first day of spring was quite some time ago . . . BUT I live in Canada !
Winter has not fully gone here yet!

Just in the last week do we finally have grass in our yard! Although we still have a GI-normous snow bank as well . But the grass is there.

Everybody loves spring . And why wouldn't we? We all want a break from the cold and the snow and the ice and yada yada yada! BUT if there is one thing I despise about spring it's MUD! RAIN! And the rain that makes the mud!!! haha!

There is not to much we can do about muddy paws. It is pretty much unavoidable in most cases.

My plan for this post was to give you tips on how to avoid muddy paws tracked all over your house , but I gotta tell ya , I got NOTHING!



It is simply unavoidable! What I CAN help you with though  , is how to keep muddy paws prints from happening all over your vehicle. One big thing with spring mud, is going to the dog parks. They are pretty messy this time of year , and if you didn't walk to the park , you better plan on having a mud filled vehicle!


Take a moment to check out this infograph!

  2. We jump for joy that you can see grass at last. Peeps had me trimmed early as it was mild here and because of the endless rain and therefore endless mud on the park. She buys dog wipes which are extra strong and cleans me with those when we got home. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Glad to hear your weather is getting warmer! :) Seat covers are the best invention ever! Even when it's not muddy Zu is constantly shedding or tracking something into my car. Thanks for sharing!

  8. everyone who sees our car gags I dont mind at all though since we live in an urban area we use it mostly to take our dogs to the park. We walk to the train for work and often take the train to resteraunts and movies. We get our groceries delivered. We do use the car without the dogs on occasion of course. The inside of the car is totally carpetted in our dogs hair. I have a sheet in hte front to keep some hair off my seat. I dont worry about it too much since I see it as a dog transport vehicle and I think its a car theft deterrent too, plus it smells a bit of dog (more then a bit really). I did have a car seat cover given to me as a gift but it just fell down all the time. If we used the car daily though Id have to do something, or get two cars!

    1. Haha!!! That's awesome!! One car for your dogs and one for you! Haha!! Kurgo does have different style covers though, like you can get an entire hammock for your backseat that shouldn't fall, and leaves the car completely untouched, but hey, if you don't mind then you go girl! Haha!

  9. I feel you on the mud, four cats, four dogs, four paws a piece, thats 32 paws tracking in mud! Thankfully the muddy paws isn't much of an issue in the truck, leather is so easy to clean, now fur... thats a whole other issue... when I got the AC fixed in my truck last summer my mechanic, Jim (I've gone to the same guy for years, he knows me by name, and lets my dogs come in and visit) said he'd knock off $80 if I vacuumed the fur out first... THATS BAD! When the mechanic I've gone to for years says he won't work on it unless its been de-Furbombed!

    Oh, and due to the headrests on my back-seat not being adjustable or detachable most back-seat hammocks don't work in my truck, so I have to settle for dropping the backs of the back-seat(I didn't have when we had three dogs, but once Chloe came to live with us we found dropping the backs of the seats actually gave them twice as much room) and covering it with a blanket. Again it does nothing for fur but helps with mud and wet fur.

    1. haha!! Yea, that is bad!!! BOL!!!! But hey, at least you got $80 off right? BOL!
      A blanket would work just as well, aside from it always sliding around haha! Thanks so much for coming by :)

  17. We used to keep a towel at the door and wipe off the dogs' paws every time they came in wet or muddy....you can imagine how quickly that got old, plus it only helped so much anyway. Now I just let them track it all in and then sweep up afterwards! I do dry them off at the door if it's raining really hard, but I don't bother much with their paws.

    1. Sorry your comment had issues! It is frustrating when that happens! I know!!
      Unfortunately we do not have a mud room, I wish we did, it would be much easier. I do my best to towel off their paws but with three huskies I have pretty much given up on that unless it is real bad. I have baby gates to keep them out of the living room when they are muddy then at least I only have to worry about the kitchen floor!
