- The reality of owning a dog can be very different from what one may imagine.
While fuzzy dogs may look ideal for cuddles on the couch, the reality of owning one can be different. Take Onni, a five-month-old Samoyed from Helsinki, Finland, for instance. Known for their splendid white coats and smiley faces, Samoyeds are essentially strolling clouds. Furthermore, as any individual who attempts to wear an all-white outfit will know, it’s all playing around when your inside. However, the possibility of heading outside increases the danger of recolouring your splendid white fur exponentially, is another issue.
2. Onni came wet and muddy, resembling a different dog.
Luckily, we have umbrellas. Onni, in any case, was not all that blessed. And recently returned home from an especially wet and sloppy walk taking after a completely different dog. The main unmistakable part left was his guiltless face jabbing through the mud.
3. Lotta Alajoki, Onni’s owner said-
“It was a wet and muddy day and Onni was playing with his sister and one of our breeder’s dogs, wrestling around in the mud. At first, we were worried about how we were going to get him clean but when we kept looking at him all we could do was laugh, he just looked so funny that we had to take a picture.”
She further adds,
“So many people think the mud is wiped off or it’s photoshopped but it’s not, he looks like that after every muddy walk or play date. His face was still white because the hair on his face is shorter so the mud doesn’t stick to it.”
4. Samoyeds aren’t actually too difficult to clean.
Luckily for Lotta, and as several owners may know, Samoyeds aren’t that hard to clean. On account of the breed’s twofold layer coat, the external layer of keeps the inner layer of fur clean.
