This staffy flew past us on our walk near the donkey sanctuary, leapt into this filthy muddy puddle and spent the next five or ten minutes having an absolute whale of a time leaping up and down in it! It was hilarious to watch...glad he wasn't jumping up at me afterwards....he was jet propelled!!

Super capture, Barbara, and great fun to watch, I'm sure. I'm quite glad though that cats don't do that!

Barbara great catch of this playful ..muddy...staffy. Funny how they always love to roll in mud and dirt...

So funny, all that green grass and where does the dog go to play.

A great catch of this muddy dog!! I can imagine that you enjoyed watching this dog knowing that you wouldn't have to take him back home in your car!! ;-))

It was great Sylvia, I wish I had put the camera into movie mode...it was hilarious!! Now I know why the owner said her dog was like a performing seal:))

He wasn't exactly floating on the water Samir....more like a Sherman tank!!

Thanks for the lovely comments Barb! He was an absolute joy to watch....I wish that all dogs had as wonderful a life as this little chap obviously does:))

Thanks Joan...just like kids plodging in puddles! (don't think 'plodging' is a word, but you know what I mean:))

Thanks Jo....yes, he made for the puddle like an exocet missile...straight in and at it!!

Thanks Anna-Maria.....the little schnauzer we were taking for a walk was on an extending lead, otherwise I think he may have been in there with him! I'm very glad he didn't go in...I don't think his owner would have been very pleased:)

Nice capture!
Will be less fun for the owners when staffy comes in the house. We had Balou during a rainy week in our house and she likes mud too!

hi barbara! what a happy picture! yes, a bit of video would have been fun to watch afterwards. i took a few on my trip and it's so different looking then at pictures when you go to the memories.
i agree with joan, if sporadicality can be a word, so can plodging ;o))

He had a wonderful time Margaret!

Not one bit of it Geoff...when he eventually came out of the puddle he took off like a rocket...but in the wrong direction...we had to redirect him...it was sooo funny!:))

Thanks Peter....his owner also had a heavyweight Rottweiler, so there would be 8 mucky paws to contend with!! Think yourself lucky you just had Balou:))

Thanks Peter!

Thanks Joan...I'll have to submit it to the OED and see if they agree with us:))
