{documenting life} bathing the dog on an autumn afternoon

Our dog Jo will be 8 this year, and lately we’ve noticed age creeping up on her.

she’s never been a fan of having a bath

but in true dog-style, she insists on laying in the dirt near her kennel, which meant it was time for a freshen up.

A few years back, Warren took pity on her and started bathing her in the bathtub during the colder weather.  That’s now turned into being bathed in the bathtub whenever she needs a wash.  She’s still not a fan of her bath, but I think she’s grateful for the warm water and towel-dry at the end!

jo's sad dog face when she realises it's time for a bath

pouring water over the dog

the dog doesn't like water on her face

having her face washed

licking her face clean

one last rinse

time to catch the shake

are you going to shake dog?

enjoying the towel dry attention

oh, the indignity

the queen of clean

In the comments, I’d love to hear:

Do you spoil your dog as much as we (obviously) spoil ours?
Baths in the bathtub, or something else much more indulgent?
