This winter, Nugget seemed to get especially dirty. I think it was partly because we had a lot of thaws – he had many an opportunity to roll around in the mud. I finally convinced Ross that it is warm enough to give Nuggy a bath – Ross was worried about him getting a chill. (Do dogs, particularly very furry dogs, get chills?)
Anyway, the results were spectacular. I learned several things:
a) Nugget’s feet are supposed to be white.
b) Nugget was indeed very dirty, as evidenced by the very dark grey water.
c) Nugget’s feet were very dirty – they had to be washed several times.
d) Wash the bathroom AFTER you give the dog a bath, not before.
e) Washing a dog makes a spectacular mess. See point d.
Here are some fun photos of Nuggs trying to get dry on the carpet. We’ll be vacuuming AFTER he’s dry.
