We have a routine when it comes to bath time and it goes something like this. First, I sneak into the bathroom to get out their shampoo and take out the bathmats. Then I get a few towels out of the hall closet (because I don't want to use my good towels on them). When they see me get the towels Rufus starts spinning and I worry that Bella's tail is going to knock a hole in the wall. We then enter the bathroom together. I open the shower and Rufus hops in. Rufus drinks water like he hasn't had anything to drink in a week while I adjust the temperature. I wash Rufus while Bella supervises over my shoulder. After I wash Rufus I turn off the water, at this point Bella starts getting really excited because she knows that her turn is next. While I towel dry Rufus, Bella climbs into the bathtub and stands patiently waiting for me to wash her. I then climb in the bathtub with Bella and shut the shower door so Rufus won't jump back in (that boy LOVES water). I don't know if any of you have ever given a Great Dane a bath or not, but it's no small task, to say I end up wet would be an understatement I would love to be able to give her a bath without getting wet, but she's so big she can't turn around in the bathtub, thus I have to reach over her, thus I get wet. Just for laughs, here is a picture of Bella in the bathtub.
Have I ever mentioned that small spaces make Bella nervous and that she licks her lips when she's nervous?
