Washing your dog(s) means...

Okay, another meant in fun thread. What sort of funny behaviours do your pups exhibit after having a bath.?



I bathe Brody in the bathroom, so washing my dog means....


...for the next several hours I get the bathroom to myself without my little Havanese shadow.

Each one of mine does a RLH right after a bath. It was hilarious watching them, one by one, go nuts in the yard, tearing around like they were possessed.

So Timmy has had about 5 baths. Here's the process;
Bath #1 - Timmy is so terrified that I hold him in the towel for about an hour and he's totally dry when I release him.
Bath 2 & 3 - Timmy is less terrified, bought a microfiber towel, held him for about half an hour, Timmy's dry.
Bath 4 - Brought out the blow dryer on low took about half an hour to dry him.
Bath 5 - Time restraints, bath, quick squeeze in towel, release and blow dyer on high aiming at him from across the room, video below.
Oh bath time tomorrow, yay...

Brody has yet to be blown dry, I just don't have enough arms! He loves the part where he gets bundled up in the towel and I hold him though.

He just cracks me up when he won't come in the bathroom...he's already had the bath...does he think I might do it again??

Okay, I give up. I haven't yet learned what RLH means. Somebody please explain!

For us, washing Camellia means, I managed to catch her so I could put her in her Tub.

I dry her by hand, with towels - my hair dryer is too old, and she hates it anyway. And Camellia always gets the Zoomies right after her bath. She rolls in the towels on the sofa and the daybed opposite, jumping from one to the other. Then I finger-dry her for about a half-hour, and by then, she's become dry enough not to get a chill.

About three hours later, I spray her with her special DOUXO spray. I use DOUXO calming shampoo, for her rather severe atopy (missing skin barrier, so that she suffers from rather severe environmental allergies).

This DOUXO stuff replaces the missing skin barrier.

Well today was suppose to be bath day but mom got side tracked. Mine love to run run run wiggle and roll all over the place. It depends on the time of year weather I allow running before being dry. I usually try to get them pretty much dry before I let them loose. Then its back on the table for more comping and brushing
I loved Timmie's video brings back fun memories!
Her is a before during and after of the princess Zoey.
