Happy New Year and the Dog Bath

I'd like to wish all of you a very Happy New Year!  Here's to a year of health, happiness, and productivity!

Our German Shepherd, Schultz is ready for the new year.  You may recall that he had a doggy makeover a couple of days ago, and ended up with red lipstick all over his face. My daughter got most of it off, but not all.  We knew we had to give the beast a bath.

My husband is responsible for doggy baths. Mostly because the animal is so large, that I end up getting just about as wet as he does whenever I try to do the job.  This time, my husband decided to give him an extra special bath - in our jacuzzi in the Master bathroom.  (I found out about this after the bath was done.)

"Dad did what?" I asked, when I came home and my kids told me the story.

"He filled up the hot tub and gave the dog a bath," my daughter repeated.

"With bubbles and the jets going?"

She nodded.  "He loved it!"

I bet he did.  I went upstairs to inspect the damage.  Fortunately, the hair and dirt was all cleaned up, so you couldn't even tell it was done.  I turned around, and my husband grinned.  " See? I cleaned up!"

I made a face at him.  "No more hot tubs for Schultz!"

I went out of the room and saw Schultz looking very pleased at the bottom of the steps.  I shook my head.  At least he was clean.  But I don't think I'll be using that hot tub ever again!

  1. That is great. Hey, if Hubby's got it all cleaned up, that makes him one smart cookie. Happy 2015.

    2. Smart cookie, that one.

      You too, thanks. I'm a little or rather, a lot pooped today so no baking just yet. Catching up on blogs. Hubby has great music playing and the house is in pretty decent shape.

      What are you up to today?

    1. Yes. I'm not thrilled that Schultz was in there. But I haven't any stray dog hairs or dirt crumbs, so it might be okay to use. ;0)
