I bet you weren’t expecting that.
For years I’ve bathed these two separately. This time I thought I would just try putting them in the tub together. If it worked, I could save time, water, and a lot of back strain.
It worked! Neither dog likes being in water, and shampoo is just adding insult to injury. They were so miserable that it didn’t occur to them to cause any mischief. I got them both clean in half the time.
I think I have a very limited window of opportunity with this though. Once they figure out that I can only hold on to one of them at a time, it will be every dog for him/herself and my bathroom will end up looking like a tidal wave came through.
Looks like that moment of discovery is near.
