Bath time

Oh great, a pile of towels. This is not going to be fun.

Maggie wants Duke to go first. Duke doesn't care.

Maggie loves towels.

Duke: Are you serious? Boys don't wear head towels.

Glad that's over.

Maggie's Super Sato vision senses that Duke is still annoyed, even with the half wag going.

Have fun picking up towels, we're staying over here.

Ooh, you have chicken?

I'm thankful that they each only weigh about 50 pounds, and that they hopped into the tub this time instead of having to be lifted in. Also thankful that they didn't hop out while still soapy, no way could I get tub pics! Maybe with more chicken or cheese next time....there will be a next time, they've had 3 baths in 2 weeks.

  1. MOWZERS! What a cool birfday present - new friends! A lot to be thankful for! (Pee Ess: we're thankful YOU had the bath and not US!)

  2. They are so cute. Poor Maggie looks like she really didn't want to have that bath. Are Duke and Maggie related? They really look like they should be if they're not.

    1. Maggie hates baths, but she's the one who gets totally covered in grossness. The wild turkeys were right in our backyard, so she had easy access.
      So many people ask if they're related! Maggie's mom was spayed after she and the pups were rescued, and Duke is a year younger, but maybe the same dad was running around the streets of Puerto Rico?

    1. It's definitely one at a time! I've had too much practice, plus we have an awesome shower sprayer that was $12 at Home Depot. It gets the soap off really quickly so they're not in the tub for too long.

  4. Whoa, it sounds like you two are pretty cooperative about taking those baths. That is something to be thankful about, indeed. :)

    1. There are usually pieces of chicken or cheese involved to make it less awful.

  5. I wish my babies would jump right in, but no luck. I am lucky enough to have them between 45-55 pounds though, but a squirming Hades usually requires a little help from my boyfriend to get in. The poor guy just shakes like a baby the whole time in the tub! I love head towel pictures, always a mama's favorite photo opp!

    1. Usually I lift their front legs in and then the back end, but they each hopped for their turn once I lined them up with the tub. I'm pretty sure the chicken helped.:)
      Poor Hades! Our 2 used to shake, now they just look miserable. Duke zooms around the house once I open the bathroom door.

  6. They sit so nice after their bath. Chester tears out of the bathroom, barks up a storm and then proceeds to rub himself all over the carpet :)

    1. I have to keep the door closed until they're mostly toweled off, then Duke runs through the house jumping, wagging & play bowing at Maggie. She usually plays with him & then comes back in to try and steal towels to shred.

  7. Those are some doleful looks -- an impressive attempt at trying to cute their way out of a bath!

    And I do believe I have the same blue-striped towel. Heh.

    1. They're both very dramatic! The striped towels are Target's "fast dry towels"; I think they only dry fast because they don't absorb much water. Darn it. At least we bought them on sale.

  9. Any chance you can train our dogs to sit still after a bath? Too cute!
