A Memorable Day

I have an award! Thank you Fiona!

Now I need to do some serious thinking about who to send one to - this may take all weekend.
It's also been a memorable day because Herbie had his annual bath. (I'm saving Holly till tomorrow.) Greyhounds have very fine short fur with little natural oil, so they tend not to smell "doggy", but I bathe them every spring whether they need it or not.
Holly is a roller (fox poo, bird droppings, pond weed, you name it) so has had many, many baths in her short life. Herbie is a fastidious creature who spends a fair amount of time grooming himself, so I don't have to. I thought my bottle of "Puppy and Kitten Shampoo" would last a liefetime, until Holly arrived to tell me different.

I use a natural dog soap that comes in bar form. Buddy is the brand. Since Buddha has a very short coat and doesn't have much of a doggy odor, I thought the one bar of dog soap would last a long, long time. And it did, until my last foster dog Bruce ate the bar right off the edge of the bathtub. Just a little snack.

Ewww - was he sick?

Tilly thinks that bath-time is seriously over-rated... Hope all's well and the little chaps feeling OK.
