Mary told us that Herbert, the Italian Spinone, is a mud magnet! However, if Mary is working and Herbert is going to lounge on his couch in her office she tries to avoid too much mud – particularly as Herbert can smell water and will take off as fast as he can. He also suffers from car sickness and won’t get in the car so has to be lifted…all 48kg!
