When we had the family barbecue on Sunday, we decided to kill two birds with one stone by giving the dogs baths as a form of entertainment for our nieces.
So, we dragged out the wading pool, connected the hose to the laundry room utility sink, and bathed first Loki and then Thor. Neither dog was particularly happy about the experience, but they never are. Let's say they tolerate it well.
The really cute part of the day was afterward, though. We thoroughly cleaned the pool and filled it again with warm water, then our 3-year-old niece decided to lounge around like it was her private bathtub for the next hour and hold court for her Uncle Eddie.
