Sparky doesn't really mind her baths too much. As long as the water is warm, she gets nicely towel dried, gets her well-deserved treat and can go finish drying in the sun....she is one happy little twelve and a half year old pup.
I love this picture. It looks like they are lined up waiting for their turn. Really, they were just being nosey and wanted to know what we were doing to Sparky!
Wrigley has been in the tub....in the tub with the water running....and in the tub with water running on her....but Wrigley is not fond of water and she has never really been lathered up...until Saturday. She was way overdue!
Next was our newcomer. We couldn't wait any longer. I'm not sure if Maggie had ever had a bath, but we guessed probably not. The foster mom liked to wipe her with baby wipes to "clean" her and keep her fresh smelling. All that did was make her coat oily and didn't do anything for the dirt in her thick coat.
I'm not use to a dog with long hair and oh my word...there was hair everywhere.
I was laughing so hard that I almost wet my pants when she shook for the first time in the tub after we rinsed her. She looked like a porcupine!!! It was so funny!
Her coat looked totally different after her bath! It was so soft and fluffy.
Some nail trimming and lots of kind words and Doggie Spa Day was done....until the next time.
