Bathing Beauties


  
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.

    1. Trying their best to play on my sympathy.

  2. Haha! You're right - I was expecting a beautiful swimming suit you created! These two are adorable though.

    1. "Beauties" might have been stretching it a bit!

  3. Too cute! My little guy had a bath yesterday as well (in the sink). I think he actually likes it - especially when he gets rubbed down with the towel.

    1. Yes - a chi is the perfect bathing size! I was remembering my little Yorkie - he fit perfectly in the kitchen sink, and he would stay there like a (relatively) good boy. These two are just too darn big (at 15 1bs) and rambunctious.

  4. You will have to keep us posted and let us know if the shock wears off and they start working together to undermine the bathing.

    I remember one time when I had to bathe my cat. She started to act like she had resigned herself to the task. The second I loosened my grip in the slightest, she was almost out of there - covered in foam and dripping wet. Fortunately I caught her. I must admit, though, I was glad that was the last bath I had to give her!

  5. It's true then, there's power in numbers - crowd mentality rules - even with little furry bathing beauties! Funny.
