Today was a hot, wonderful summer day. We had a lot of fun with the pups. They each got a shampoo bath, the first one this summer, very much needed. Denny has such an interesting coat. It's like a sponge, keeps the water in for a long time, even with vigorous toweling off several times, with every shake he's all wet again. But today it's more about Happy, and his fun with the water hose!
This is my favorite photo, and if you can, look at it the largest size possible. I love how the camera got the water drops all around him, and in front of his chest.
Every time he sees us going to turn on the hose, he runs to look for the end of it, waiting for the water to come out. If we are not fast enough, he'll garb it and off he goes splish-splashing all over the lawn, and eventually digging in the mud he produced with the help of the hose. So we have to be quick, and send him flying around the lawn, chasing the falling water drops.
This is another one of my favorites:
And here he just looks like an idiot:
He's always getting quite a work out, while Denny is standing between my legs, the perfect place to NOT get wet, but watching the whole thing:
I'd appreciate if I could get some advice on how to cut the nails if the one who's nails are long, and in need of cutting, but does not cooperate = Denny! We tried a lot of things, and even got Valium form the Vet, but that made just his butt wiggle waggle a little, but the rest of the dog did not slow down, or let us clip a single nail. I don't know what to do now. If WE can't cut the nails, surely I can't go to a groomer with him? Any suggestions? So far we've always cut the nails of our dogs, but this little bugger wont let us.
