Gracie gets so dirty playing in my yard. There is in my yard, trees, dirt, some weeds and some gravel on the ground that my yard guy has not moved for me for a very long time. Language barrier ? I think. Gracie rolls on the dirt and gravel. I have had a dog that gets so dirty. I am letting her hair long for warmth. Also the grooming cost 50$ for a 15 lb dog. She loves being rubbed or brushed or bathed.
Dogs should be bathed once a month. Gracie need twice a mouth because she smells bad, Lab never smell bad this way.
