Can't Stay Clean!

We were out of town over the weekend and our puppy Madeline had her first stay at the vet kennel. After picking her up this morning I gave her a bath, brushed and blew dry her massive amounts of fluffy fur.

So you can imagine my surprise just a few hours later (5 minutes after my kids asked if they could try out the new water guns they got in their Easter baskets) when I walked outside to see this!

The kids had apparently had a fine time squirting the dog and she'd had a fine time helping them refill at the faucet and then wildly rolling in the dirt of a nearby flower bed!

There was nothing I could do except bathe her again (and perhaps whine and moan a bit about it, which I did, too)!

My own hair did not get blown dry today. I had to settle for an air-dry. Why? Because I didn't have time to blow it dry.

The dog, however, got 2 baths and 2 blow dries!

Good thing I actually missed the little rascal while we were gone! Yep, I dropped her off the night before we left since we needed to get away early the next morning, and it wasn't 5 minutes before I missed that puppy that drives me so crazy!

What did you tackle today or re-tackle?

  5. Oh my goodness. Your dog is the cutest thing! SO adorable. Seriously sweet! I can't wait to show my son in the morning. He loves unique dogs so he will freak out about your cool pet!

  6. Your puppy is adorable! He must have been surprised to get two baths in one day!

  7. LOL.

    I bet that takes a LONG time to blow-dry all of that fluff!

  8. She is too cute!! So funny that you didn't get to dry your own hair! I've been there! A lot!

  9. Madeline is adorable!! I might have asked before, but what kind of dog is she? I think it's funny she got not one, but two blow-dries and you got none! ;) Princess Nagger loves to squirt water on our dogs, too. I think they quite enjoy it, especially when it's hot. ;)
