It’s funny how fast the weather changes sometimes. We have had some overcast skies with a bit of drizzle a few weeks ago and now, it is hot and muggy. The temperature today was 102 degrees and I was panting so momma with her questionable wisdom decided it would be a good time to give me a haircut and bath.
All I was doing was minding my own business on the big bed, not bothering anyone when all of a sudden momma picked me up and put me on the bathroom counter, took the clippers and started cutting off my hair. Thankfully she left my face alone but she did cut off some of my pretty tail plume because of tangles. After the horror of having myself clipped and scissored I was plopped into the tub which was already filled with water. It was here that I was soaped up and scrubbed down even though I don’t think I needed to be.
Coco ran for the hills when she saw what was happening and afterwards when I was dried off and returned to the big bed I waited for momma to do the same treatment to Coco but it didn’t happen. I don’t mean to talk ill of my fursister but she certainly doesn’t smell anything like a rose right at the moment if you get my drift.
When daddy called to night I heard momma telling him that tomorrow Coco will get a haircut and bath, but don’t tell her, that can be our little secret.
Puff.. i feel your pain .. i got the bath .. and still need the cut ! BOL ! since i haven't been feeling my best .. mom is giving me a reprieve on the cut !
Wellwoof, guess you got it over with befure Coco! You're ahead of the game! BOL!
The advantage of being a bigger dog like myself is that I can't just be picked up and carried to the bathroom. I make bathtime something the humans also like to avoid...that is the secret of getting fewer baths.LOL
I got a bath last night too! I heard my mommy say that she is going to try and shave me later this week--ugh. I better start looking for a hiding place!
Now it is all over and you are in good shape for the Hot weather........ I was worried, 'dI get a tubbie tonight, cuz I was helping Gpa work the soil up for Gma's veggie garden. Gma was too tired! I was just wiped down with a hot washcloth and toweled...... I hid all day cuz, I saw the grooming pail...
Finally she just put it away....Hum,what's up with that?
I haven't had a bath since the beginning of the month and when Mommy did that she also trimmed my feet and straightened my feathers out. She never does much trimming on me because, she like me loves my fluff. Now since it has been in the upper 80's low 90's I have had more pool time. I love pool time and now Mom is saying I will need a bath again soon. Which is cool with me cause, I love water of any form.
Same thing happens to me all the time! Laying on the bed, minding my own business and she grabs me up and starts the torture! ughhh
