Bath Time!

The boys get a bath about 3-4 times a year, give or take. Today was one of those times.

With the "big show" coming up next weekend and winter weather quickly approaching (*shudder*), I thought this was as good a time as any. I take them to a locally owned business called Vaganza's that offers a decently priced U-Groom. Take your dogs in and for a small fee you get to use their raised tubs, grooming tables, forced air dryers, and all the shampoo, conditioner, whitener, and towels you want. Top it off with a slick of PetSilk and a cookie and we're homeward bound!

The boys don't like it very much, but I love the convenience of it all. Plus the raised tubs are much easier on the back and I don't have to do any big clean-up afterwards.

Some wet dogs ... scrawny beasts!

And some sudsy puppies!

After a spritz with some leave in conditioner and a good blow out, they are fluffy, soft and shiny!

Zoomies ensue as soon as we get home, up and down the hallway a couple dozen times. Now both are currently curled up on the bed for a nap ... it's a lot of work being handsome!

Oh no run, hide! Say it isn't bath time! The Mum gives me baths in our tub, then the Dad has to pull hair out of the drain after. Well, actually, he pulls the other dogs' hair out, because mine is nice and short!

You guys look like you have chicken legs, rough shelties all wet. LOL I'm glad it wasn't me!

I'm such a sucker for bath-time pics! You're boys are quite handsome!

M & I always get the zoomies post bath... they like to scrub their heads and ears along the floor while propelling themselves with their back legs... yes, its just lovely.

Mom loves to take photos of me when I'm wet from a bath! Baths give me zoomies too - but then a lot of things do that to me!

I feel for you.......bath times are never fun. The dad has a special hose that connects to out shower and that makes it easy for him to wash me, but I still don't like it. The only good thing, is that mad half hour after the bath when I get to shake and rub on everything and everyone and run around like crazy
