I know I'm way behind. We took the dogs up for a hike at our usual spot by the dump, and found it covered in free range cows! We just kept the dogs on leash till we were past them, but of course, West found a delightful cowpie to smear himself in. Once he was mostly dry, I took the brush to him. In the past, brushing has been very stressful for West, but you can see here that he's staying voluntarily. I tried hard to release him for a play while he was relaxed. He's still a bit smelly, but it's wearing off.. Sigh.
