It was time to give our Sandy a good scrub after a winter-long of staying natural and smelling like a dog... it is a back-breaking job and I usually end up smelling like the dog myself especially when he shakes on me during the wash. His first (which was also his last) visit last year to the groomer's was not a good one for him. He came home with a limp and progressively got worse. Our vet believes he was handled roughly by the groomers. I don't think it was done on purpose; we as pet owners usually know how much rough handling or playing our pets can take. Besides, our 'Gramps' Sandy will be 13 end of May and is no longer as agile as a young pup - maybe the groomer plain forgot about that.
My daughter took these photos during his wash in the tub last week, he still looks like a puppy, doesn't he?
Sandy peeking under the shower curtain; I had drawn the curtain for him to have a good shake. I guess he didn't quite like to be 'shut' in.
