Dexter and his doggie park bff Nanook, [photo not available at this time :) ]had a rockin' good time time this morning at the big field. It had been POURING here for the entire day yesterday, and while I expected the grass to be wet, and his paws to get a little muddy, I didn't expect that he and his partner-in-crime would find a huuuuuuuuge puddle off to the side. Now keep in mind, Nanook is a Samoyed, pure white.

Here's how Dexter ended up. You can imagine how Nook ended up:





Soooo, I had to give the mudball a bath. Which is kind of significant, because, well, ....I've never bathed Dexter myself until today. :oops: Actually, I've never ever given a dog a bath until today :shock:

But there's a good reason for this. As a child, my parents were always the ones to give a bath. And with Dexter, I wanted to socialize him with a groomer, and they were soooo nice and did such a good job with him, that I ended up getting into the habit of taking him there for ALL of his baths. It was so easy...especially with a two-year-old underfoot!!!

But, since all is always well in Doodle-land, I swallowed hard and went ahead and bathed him myself. HE WAS A CHAMP!! Such a good boy! He even dug it when I used the blow dryer on him. Couldn't have gone easier! Gotta love Beginner's Luck!!

So, here is the aftermath of playing with Nook, getting all kinds of muddy, and having Mom give him a bath for the first time:

OUT LIKE A LIGHT!


....and that was our day :D

Wow Dex! Mom NEVER lets me get that dirty! She says playing on the beach and in the water mats me enough.

I'd much rather be there with you playing in the mud - its not fair, you got the COOL mom!

Ha ha - I didn't have to! The big field is about 100 yards down the road - we walked! Nook is our neighbor, that's why we see him all the time. (The field is a huuuuuge soccer field surrounded by woods. The town lets us run the dogs there because everyone is so good about cleaning up after them!)

PS - my mistake, I said he was a Samoyed but meant to say American Eskimo. Here's what one looks like (not Nook), now picture all the gloppy mud on HIM!



His dad and I were just shrugging at each other "Whatcha gonna do..." :roll:

LYNN my neighbor across the street has a American Eskimo rescue dog hahahaha and they take him to the groomers every 2 weeks :wink:
AND Peanut's nickname when it rains is PigPen as she rolls and rubs and slips slides inthe mud with max hahahhahaa -- That's what hoses are made for :wink:

YOu know what? i think it's GREAT you let your doodle get muddy it's a part of being a dog...just like when my 3 kids were little tots, i let them play in the rain and mud hahhahahaa why not! :D

IF any of you could see how I look after a days of supervising and helping a landscape job I design ...hahhahaa you would NOT recognize me at all . I am NOT allowed to come in the house unless i hose down first hahhahahahhaaaa (and NO i don't use doggy shampoo) :wink:

Dear Dexter,

You are soooooooo lucky!!!!! I wish the FoodLady would let me do that ... but she says it would be hard to get me home since I won't let her hose me down at the dog park :cry: !

You clean up nice too!

Woofs and Licks!

Wow, you look like you had tons of fun! Mom lets me get dirty but then I get the hose. I like the hose though. Mom laughs because I'll aways want a drink before I get washed. I want a drink before she waters her flowers and before the cars get washed, too. Hose water is good!!

I have a nice muddy lake to get my mud from. I don't have puddles that big!

Hugs & licks to all!
