Downright Dirty Dog

A couple of days ago the dog came home with her back covered in an oily substance. Not wanting to bathe her all over, not because she doesn't like baths, but because my back reacts badly to bending over I scrubbed her off with a soapy rag. While that didn't work out as well as I had hoped, there was improvement.

Then yesterday after we came in from working outside she was quite wet. The husband said she was rolling in the dew wet grass so I didn't look further. My attention was focused on the upcoming arrival of family and friends. When daughter no. 2 showed up, Natty galloped out to meet her and we both noticed she was caked with small balls of mud. No way around that mess except to head to the shower.

Twenty minutes later we emerged. She was certainly cleaner than I was. And the shower was a wreck. Another half hour later the shower, bathroom floor and I were presentable and for a few days at least she smells quite sweet. And the cats I'm sure appreciate that. :-)

Once again one of those "dirty deeds done dirt cheap".

*hugs* Love dogs, not so much the bathing of them. I'm sure she appreciated it in the long run, though.

Yep, she loves a bath and it is horrible hot here so the cool down was a good thing too,

Aww she's a cutie <3 At least you can get her in the shower! I have those stupid glass doors and a highly skittish 55lb dog :l I won't take the chance. I bathe her at the local petshop (they have free tubs to use) or at the farm in the summer (my guy's grandparents still live on farmland and his best bud is a legit farmer)

It'd be great if Sooki didn't have sooo many emotional problems... No matter where I bathe her, it's hell.

Haha, I used to take our last dog into the shower, too. It was the only way to bathe him. He didn't like it, but couldn't get away :)

Enjoy your nice clean dog for a few days!

She really likes the shower, have a removable head which helps. Hard for me to bend over long enough to get her clean. I would bathe her more often cause she sure does smell better, but it makes her skin dry.

You're lucky you have a dog who loves water. Also, that's handy to have a shower head like that. I used to, in one of my incarnations of my shower...And yes, bathing does make their skin dry.
