Mucky pup! Pet owner finds her WHOLE kitchen covered in muddy paw prints after her rain-soaked dog sneaks in via the cat flap

  • Kerry Templeton, from Hampshire, accidentally left her cat flap open when she went out on Saturday night, giving her dog Maddie a way into the garden
  • Torrential rain seen in the UK over the weekend had left her garden a ‘swamp’ 
  • Maddie rolled around in the mud before squeezing back into the house and covering the whole kitchen with her dirty paw prints
  • Kerry posted photos of the mess on Facebook, and admitted she had to clean the kitchen twice and was still finding splatters of mud the next day 

A puddle-loving dog has showed the carnage that can ensue when muddy paws meet a clean kitchen. 

Pet owner Kerry Templeton, from Gosport, Hampshire, shared on social media what happened when her adorable-looking dog, Maddie, managed to squeeze through the cat flap of her home and enjoy a run out during a downpour.  

The hilarious photos – which greeted Kerry when she returned from a night with friends – show exactly what happened when Maddie squeezed back in, with the whole kitchen covered in mud, and a very sheepish-looking dog looking up at her.

Maddie, who actually has white fur, was covered from nose-to-tail in dirt after she’d managed to squeeze through the cat flap and roll around in the garden.

Returning back to the warmth of indoors, Maddie preceded to cover the whole white and beige kitchen in mud.

Paw prints covered the entire kitchen floor with the walls, stools, washing machine, fridge and door also all splattered with mud. 

After cleaning up the kitchen, Kerry’s daughter Scarlett had to give Maddie two baths to get all the dirt out of her coat.

Posting on Facebook on Monday, Kerry revealed what she’d come home to, saying: ‘Thought I’d share this with you as it has brought lots of laughter on my private FB page. I can laugh about it now!

‘Saturday night I went out with friends to come home to this. I had left the cat flap open (which my dog can fit through) and the torrential rain had turned my garden into a swamp!

She added: ‘Thank God I closed the kitchen door!’ 

Later she added that she would normally leave the catflap closed when on a night out: ‘Just forgot this time.

The Best Prints for Your Kitchen Under $100

I once visited a home where the works of a certain infamous pop artist were mixed in with the kid’s finger paintings right there in the kitchen above the breakfast nook. It was so cheeky and clever…and so impossible to re-create. But it did get me thinking about kitchen wall art: Despite our artiest intentions, it’s tricky to avoid a kitchen dominated by stainless steel appliances, sleek electronics, and white dishware. But this isn’t a room that should be shaped purely by utilitarian needs—no shiny Kitchen Aid stand mixer or covetable knife collection can stand in for a little originality in your kitchen aesthetic. After all, in most households, it’s the most trafficked room. So why not have something on the walls you like to look at?

If you’re not in the habit of collecting famous works of pop art, a framed print should still do the trick—and also stand up to any nearby searing, boiling, and frying. (Given the proximity to heat, I’d argue that you’re better off with less expensive, or less sentimental, pieces.) Luckily, the internet is full of places to find affordable prints now: Society 6, Tappan Collective, and Saatchi are all some of my favorites. If you’re willing to dig around a bit more, Etsy is a great option. Here are 11 prints to get your search started, all under $100. 

Nature

Do you love to sip your coffee while gazing at the sea? Consider these soothing landscapes.

Architecture

If your kitchen leans modern, a little architectural study might be the right thing for you. 

Food

The daily catch, a slice of pie at a diner, and a retro citrus advertisement all fit the bill for those looking to stay on theme with their kitchen wall art—in three very different styles. 

Abstract

Maybe a fish next to the fridge is a little too literal for you. Thanks to Saatchi Art, you can add an abstract print of an up-and-coming artist to your collection. 

Museum Prints

If the pandemic has left you longing for a culture trip, maybe now is the time to add a piece from one of your favorite museums?
