I feel totally bedraggled. And damp. Not quite this bedraggled and damp, though:
On rainy days, I have to dump the babies in the bath after Every. Single. Walk. And when you’re housebreaking a puppy, that’s a hell of a lot of walks…and a hell of a lot of baths. At least the stuff we use – Earthbath Coat Brightening Pet Shampoo – smells like lavender, which, as we know, makes me happy.
P.S. It’s not a great idea to use shampoo on your dog’s coat too often, as it can dry it out a bit. In rainy, muddy weather, I usually just rinse off their tummies and paws every time we come in the house (those paw-wipes don’t even make a dent in the stuff Virgil gets himself into), and then give them a full shampooing with a gentle product (like the one I recommend above) once a week – twice, at most.
