I didn't know there was a "mud" season. Since it is flooding in the Houston area, our fur-baby is delaying potty trips. She had to wade in elbow deep water this morning when she went to her usual spot, but thankfully, it finally stopped raining for now. I'll have to thoroughly clean our covered patio (a/k/a "alternate potty").....later..... not looking forward to that chore. She liked it better because it was dry.
