running on wet grass???

it was raining all day. i decided to take the
dog out to play. i was going to throw
his ball for him. my GF told me not to take
him to run in the rain and on the wet grass. she
was concerned about him slipping on the
wet grass and hurting himself. i didn't take
him out. i never thought about him getting
hurt by playing on wet grass.

so, what do you think, is playing in the
rain and on wet grass ok???

If we didn't play on the wet grass Dante wouldn't get exercise for months and months!!

I don't recall him slipping - but It could have happened. Obviously if it has he wasn't hurt

Re: running on wet grass???

For 3 of mine, I don't worry too much about it, but if its slick they really don't run full out.
For Mikko, I do not let him run or do anything but walk carefully *fun police alert* when there is rain/wet grass.
I don't know if you have tiles or carpet, but can happen easy on tiles too. If he does the splits, he'll (Mikko) be in terrible pain the next few days.
