“RASPUTITSA” IS THE WORD used in Eastern Europe, and in Alaska they call it “breakup”: It’s that soggy few weeks of late spring when low-riding Corgis and big-digging Malamutes always come home a muddy mess. This year, push rinse-free formulas for dogs that need regular spot checks and foaming cleansers for head-to-toe freshness.
