The entire family went on an excursion to the do it yourself dog wash. Both dogs were pollen puffs and were not nice to pet anymore. The place is perfect because you get your own stall so all of us were contained. Carolyn was with Dad while I scrubbed both pups. She really enjoyed watching the entire process. She did not like when the dogs would shake the water off. We rinsed her feet so it was her bathtime as well. Best part is they supply lots of towels, I don’t have to clean up afterwards, and there is no wet dog smell in the house. That Dirty Dog was very accomodating and helped us get the clan back into the car. When we put her in bed she was totally exhausted and had a bit of raspy breathing through her nose. I hope the exposure to so much dog hair is not a bad thing! Michael and I agree that these outings are very good for her especially because she wants to touch and interact with everything now.
