The sisters bath day

It is way over due for Maddie and she knows whats going on . She is under the bed hiding. I have them combed out and ready for their bath. Linda Augies mom sent me a variety of shampoos and conditioners. I'm starting with the Pure paws H2O its a hydrating shampoo and conditioner that I have wanted for over a year.
Maddie is black and Tan but her black has never been shiny. I added fish oil for a long time but ran out so I'm thinking of getting some more . Her coat has been different than most Havanese it really never grew on her body. Her face, head and paws are the only area she has ever had a hair cut. I guess I'm lucky . Her undercoat is starting to look grayer so she just might end up gray.
Zoey has had many coat changes her adolescent coat was extremely hard for me to groom. She tangled easy and was very frizzy. She has finally calmed down and a once a week combing has been just fine. I would say she has a nice wavy coat that is very thick. Because I showed her for about a year she got used to being groomed so she posed for her before bath picture and didn't go hide under the bed.
Here are the sisters before their December Bath!

Aww, poor Maddie! Your girls are so cute Suzi

Have you ever tried bathing them together or is that crazy? Now that I have Riley, I was wondering if it was possible or completely insane to even try.

Okay were done. Maddie was first and I really like how her hair feels with the new shampoo and conditioner. It made it shinier and even her undercoat looks darker. Maybe it was just dirty I had one area that was hard and that was her face. She had gotten mats on her whisker area that I hadn't noticed. She was a real trouper and let me gently comp her face.
I was surprised that the shampoo and conditioner didn't work even better on Zoey. It feels really soft and was the easiest comb out I have ever had with her. I did however have a lot of static and friz but that is nothing new. I have always like her coat better a couple days after a bath. The real test will be in about a week.

PS Zoey did go run and hide under the bed when she knew it was her turn.

They are so cute. I hope the new shampoo and conditioner works well for you.

I love how they hide under the bed. Murphy is never thrilled about the bath but he can't resist a treat so usually comes to me pretty quick

Mine cannot hide under the bed because we have a captain's bed. LOL

Regarding washing two at once - are you nuts?
