Abby is the cleanest she has ever been. Likely also the cleanest she will ever be. And no, I do not expect it to last long.
I took her to the Dog “N Suds U-Wash and scrubbed her several times with a ton of shampoo. She didn’t seem to mind at all. The water was nice and warm and I had a no-slip mat on the floor. The only thing she said no to was the blow dryer so I just toweled her.
And she got nice treats when she was done. Then I took it all one step farther and washed the covers on her beds as well as her car blanket and towels.
We are talking clean.
And then, for another reward, she got a long walk in Hemer Park with Ocean (her best friend). So really – not too shabby a day – oh yes – and a marrow bone when she got home.
The things I will do to make sure she forgives me for the bath.
And that was pretty well the day. Lazy. Uneventful. Quiet. I’m good with that.
Things are about to get a whole lot busier: hiking up Mount Benson tomorrow. Working (!) on Thursday; hiking on Friday; and getting ready for my trip on Saturday.
Checking in with myself: feelings. Excited. Nervous. Happy. Brave. Confident.
