Two of our pack have a "thing" for shoes. Hiker likes to gather footwear and put it in a pile or take it into her crate. Breeze likes to play with footwear. Neither of them are destructive about it so it isn't something that I worry too much about. It can be annoying when one shoe ends up outside and is forgotten and then gets rained on but other than that, it isn't a big deal.
The other day, Breeze had a shoe outside and was throwing it around and having fun finding it again. I gave a fleeting thought to the fact the doggie pool was close by but again, only a fleeting thought.
I should have thought more about it.
The shoe on the right ended up in the pool and then in the red dirt.
After a few days of wearing mismatched shoes the dirt was gone and now they look the same again. Until next time.
