Doggy Spa


Our hundred-pound German Shepherd was in serious need of a bath. When he smells like dirty socks, you know it's time. In the fall and winter, Schultz gets the royal treatment:  bath in the Jacuzzi.  My husband took care of it. When he was done, the Jacuzzi was trashed, but the dog was clean and shiny.

I was practicing when the dog proudly marched in to show off his clean coat. He looked good. But then I took a sniff. It smelled strangely familiar.

"What did you use to wash the dog?" I asked my husband.

He grinned. "Your shampoo!"

Seriously?

(Well, at least he smells good!)  








Today, as part of my book tour for Ten Zany Birds, I'm at Traci McDonald's blog, where she gives a very nice review of the book.

  12. A bath in the jacuzzi? I'm sure Schultz doesn't mind getting a bath at all ;) I laughed out loud reading that your husband used your shampoo though ;D
    Have a wonderful rest of the week! Lots of hugs to you,

  14. Washing a dog in Michigan in winter was a test of patience. Here, the dog stays outside till dry! He still doesn't like being washed but is always proud afterwards.
