I can’t really say that Scratch hates water. ‘Cause he doesn’t. It’s more like he prefers to avoid it, but he does not hate it per se. But he had to take a bath. Seriously. I know dogs smell like dogs. But said smell is a bit off. I prefer my dogs to smell good. I’d spray some of my perfume on Scratch if he were a girl but he’d probably still get upset.
I took Scratch upstairs to the boys’ bathroom and he ran happily behind me. I think he can read minds or something, which, if you really put some thought into it, is kind of scary!
He knew right away what was going on. He simply sat down infront of me and stared as if saying, ‘Thanks, but not really. I am perfectly fine in this very spot. Now, please move on with your life”. To what I said that there’s no way he was gonna go without a bath. And 3 seconds later, the puppy who refuses to let me take a photo of him (yeah, Scratch always turns away) posed for me with one of his tennis balls:
Look at those sad eyes, enticing me to play with him and forget all about the bath he desperately needed, according to me, of course. Booger…
I finally managed to get him in the tub. He still did not want any of it! I even made sure the water was pretty warm! And that the bath took place on a weird sunny day in Portland! Still, he tried to jump out. I stopped him and I got glared at…Look at the sad eyes!
We used his new Pet Head Shampoo. I bet that by looking at the photo you are thinking of Bed Head, right? Well, Pet Head is their pet line! I’ve always loved their logo.
The edgy fashion forward line will perfect every doggie’s ‘do and style! Man’s best friend will be living the lifestyle of the leashed and famous in no time!”
This time around, we tried the DirtyTalk deodorizing shampoo which has a fruity smell. This powerful and gentle formula neutralizes odors, not just covers them up!
• Baking Soda and Ordenone: Work together to deodorize and freshen the coat.
• Vegetable Protein Extract & Hydrolyzed Soy Protein: Help build body and elasticity and leave the coat looking fuller and luscious.
It is pretty easy to use: Wet the coat completely with warm water. Apply shampoo gently, work back to the tail. Lather well into coat. Avoid eyes and ears. Rinse thoroughly and towel dry.
Pretty straight forward.
Took quite a few shampoo to get all his fur clean! Sir has a very thick coat! And he still tried to make me feel bad about him with those sad eyes…
Once done he jumped out of the tub and started rubbing his face on the towel. Still trying to work those sad eyes, but glad he was done with the bath!
So I decided to let him go, still with water behind the ears and under the belly. It got quite impossible to keep him still.
And he ran away…and came back:
He went, what I call, dog-crazy and started running around the house with a huge grin on his face!! Reminds me of my two little puppy girls back at my parents! Though, they’d go rub their faces on the backyard…which meant another bath.
