Washing the dog

Giving Sassy a bath isn't always easy. Bath is another word for ultimate torture, so first you have to catch her, and it goes from there.

Inman Park Pet Works has do it yourself dog washing stations. For a small fee, they provide everything, and all you have to do is bring the dirty dog. Yesterday we tried it out.

It was excellent. The dog walks up the ramp into a stainless steel dog tub. (Keith had to pick Sassy up and put her in. She weighs 60 pounds.)

Once you get her started, she's usually pretty good. Yesterday I think she was a little freaked out and behaved better than usual. When it was all over, I let her sniff around the store and got her a treat.

In other news, I didn't knit a single stitch yesterday. I did, however, finish book #10 in the Amelia Peabody series. I even missed watching Fringe as I had to know what happened between Ramses and Nefret. I really can't read books all day long today. I have errands and house cleaning. (Monster had some stomach upset, and that's not pleasant with long haired cats. Let's leave it at that. Who am I kidding? I can't leave it along. Her tail looks a little funny from where I had to cut off some of her fur.)

Ok, I realize that I haven't been following your blog forever, but . . . I need a scorecard to keep up. Why don't you take pics of each of your animals and post them with the names next to them? What's to lose? Cute animal pics are always good!
