But afterwards mom and dad did something they have never done before. They took me to a doggy wash! I did not care for it at all! Even though the sun was shining and it was nice and warm, I nearly froze to death! That big ole stainless steel tub was so cold. It was the longest 3 minutes of my life!
Note from mom: I LOVE the doggy wash! He was head to toe mud and it was so much easier than the tub at home. For $2 - it works just like the car wash. A nice big tub with a ramp - a place to hook your dog so that can't fall or jump out and several options on the dial. Rinse, shampoo, conditioner, flea & tick (we didn't do that one) blow dry. The nozzle is a nice size and doesn't come out too harsh. I am not sure if Opie was shivering from cold or fear. It only lasts 3 minutes so you have to work pretty quickly.
In the summer time we use the wading pool for baths but I am glad to have another option besides the bathtub.
Not so sure he thinks the mud baths are worth it now.
