Growing Dogs: Part 4 – Over Watering

by

“Assuming you start with good stock, all it takes are a few clippings, good soil, and bone meal mulch to get ’em to take root and prosper,” said Ms. Crumbler, 78. “Then you have to keep them watered. They do better in the shade, otherwise they tend to wither, and you have to crop ’em back occasionally.”

Sage words indeed. On the other hand, some breeds adapt to over-watering better than others (such as Lily pictured above). Many breeds tolerate over-watering well, but excessive soaking may cause a wrinkled appearance accompanied with a pungent yeasty odor.

After a few days out of the water, most dogs revert to their natural state and the odors should dissipate from your carpet and furniture within a year or so.
