I once read that dogs leave paw prints on your heart. I’m not sure about that but they cer­tainly leave them on your car­pets, floors and bed cov­ers. I don’t know which is worse – sum­mer which means the house is full of sand from the beach or win­ter when our dog turns into a happy mud mon­ster who joy­fully bounces on the bed af­ter rolling in the quag­mire our lawn be­comes this time of the year. For the first few months of her life, our springer spaniel Ruby was ter­ri­fied of water. We coaxed her into the sea, taught her rivers were not to be feared and in­tro­duced her to the joys of re­triev­ing sticks from ponds. And what a mis­take that was! While friends’ dogs are al­ways clean and dry, Ruby is wet, dirty and smells like a swamp don­key. Am I the only one whose pet is caus­ing them to tear their fur, sorry hair, out? Tell me your pet story and I’ll put you in the draw for a six-month sub­scrip­tion to TV Guide.
