Bath day for Lady



Probably not the most flattering picture of Lady, on her back in the bath tub, but from comments by employees at the U-Bathe-Em doggy emporiums we frequent, very few owners bathe their dogs this way. Lady, like my other Goldens, tolerates her baths and cooperates fully with only a little coaxing from Dad. Not bad for a 10 year old rescue girl. I'm pretty sure she never had to do this before. Leaving her special shampoo on for 10 minutes (her belly is critical) has cleared up the nagging skin problems she had last year. So now everyone is happy and Lady always gets complemented on her lovely coat. Needless to say, she loves that, especially when it is followed by much petting and cooing.

HI KT!! Lady really is a beautiful girl!! Your post reminded me of our first Golden who used to sleep in the bathtub--But our crew has never laid down for a bath--They are usually inching their way out of the tub!

Lady, you look beautiful and I bet you're also very smelly after your bath! I love baths!
Have a great weekend you two!

We do the bath too, but Luna won't lay down like that. :)

Oh Lady, you look so relaxed in the first photo. Were you enjoying some aroma therapy and soothing sounds?

Woof! Woof! Well it must be a Golden Thing cause I do the same thing. For sure you feel GREAT after the bath. You look Beautiful. BTW: Since you're a senior like me ... What shampoo/conditioner do you use? I developed several allergies on particular brands. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar
