Canine Conundrum.....

SHE would like to know WHY, a dog who SWIMS.


 AND walks through EVERY muddy puddle she can.....



 Balks at stepping in a puddle that appears.
 after heavy rain in the carport?!

This puddle--more of a damp patch--forms just next to the back car door.  Bella refuses to step in it.  She tiptoes around it, balancing on the garden hose.  She needs to go through it either to get in the car, or go for a walk.

  4. WE may be Wrong.... as we often are, here on the hill.... BUTT we think it is due to what is UNDER the water.... if there is no good Squishy MUD under there... it would be just like stepping in a BAFF... WILLINGLY... You Gotta have the soft gooey MUSHY MUD under the water to make it RIGHT and SAFE to walk in...

  5. Maybe she thinks the kittehs from across the street stopped by to pee in the carport? That's what we would think!

  6. I'd be suspicious of a puddle that suddenly appeared where there isn't usually one, too!

  7. Well I have to say I find the workings of human brains very hard to comprehend...

  8. Could it be the mo\tor oil that rises to the top of the puddle? It smells yucky and the visual rainbow effect isn't appealing on fresh water.

  11. Who likes to walk on wet dirty concrete???? Mud is so much more cozy and squishy!!!

  12. It has to do with the attitude of the water.

  13. It must be the concrete. Our screened in back porch has a small poured concrete landing by the door. Both Scottie's would jump over it either in or out of the porch. They wore down the grass in front of it and a depression was forming which held muddy water when it rained. To cut down on the amount of mud tracked in the house, I filled it with brick pavers. Now they go around the pavers and through the plants to get on the porch...jumping in at an angle to prevent stepping on the concrete landing. Now, there is a similar landing off the garage which doesn't bother them, but it's painted. Scottie's......always entertaining.

  29. Our Mom always asks why a Water Dog with the word in it's name, who can't walk by a drinking bowl without playing in the water, the same dog who pushes it's way into the shower with her and jumps off the boat half way across the lake, doesn't want to go outside if it's raining. It's one of those mysteries of life.
