Être crotté comme un barbet

Être crotté comme un barbet- As muddy or dirty as a barbet
This well known saying in France, Bepop has welcomed with open arms!.
 The earliest date for this saying is 1835, I may yet find earlier references.
So all you new puppy owners in the UK, you have been warned that this is 'Grandma'
She is not a city dog, she is not a dog that ever needs to wear a coat, she is a just a sweetheart that loves the great outdoors and that includes dirt, mud,bog, and anything dead. Now those puppy owners who are feeling smug because Betsy is their Grandma, more photos to follow as you haven't escaped.
