    I used to have two black pugs that loved baths. Ace was left in a half finished house when the owner's wife died. He would just go over and feed the dogs and left them in the house with cement floors. The dogs (I don't know how many there were) pooped and peed all over the house for weeks. A friend of ours brought Ace to my husband and said "You need this dog" My husband called me but before he would let me see the dog he took him to a groomer to be bathed. When I met him he still stunk! I mean STUNK! I put him in my huge whirlpool tub that we had and he put himself up under the running water and sat there. I think he knew how badly he smelled.

    He was the smartest dog we ever had. He was even smarter than Roo. He would sit in front of his food dish when it was empty and ding the metal dish with his toenail. He would keep doing it until you put food in his bowl. He always loved getting baths. He would tuck his butt and run all over the place when his bath was finished. He was a special dog. We used to say he was a little boy in a dog suit and we just hadn't found the zipper.

    Lovely photos and stories!!


    I can honestly say I have never had a dog that loved baths, although Piper loves the after-effects, she just adores being clean and fluffy and is so excited once the ordeal is over and she can just feel good about herself!

    Blue could mind-read, I just had to walk outside, NOTHING to alert the dogs that I was thinking, warm sunny day, good bath day (and we do get a LOT of warm sunny days in Africa!!) ---- no dogs. NO DOGS! Blue not only removed himself, he tele-alerted Bonnie, you wouldn't believe how well a St Bernard can hide herself when she doesn't want a bath!

    Later, I started using groomers that would fetch and deliver the dogs back home ... Blue would be dropped off, a vision of sheeny flowing satin black fur (he was a XChow/Newfie) ... we enjoyed that vision for two seconds, as he flowed across the garden and dived straight into the pool, and afterwards had a good roll on the lawn! icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    I used to have a German Sheppard that would roll in ANYTHING that stunk. Cow plops, horse dung, you name it he rolled in it. If he couldn't find anything else, you'd see him coming up the driveway with a dead, flat frog from the road. He would bring it up to the front yard, put it down and flop down on top of it. He'd roll on his back and just rub that nasty dead frog all over himself! He was so funny. He was also a biter, though. Only strangers! lol Unless you threatened me in any way then he bit whomever he felt was dangerous to me. He once bit my neighbor that he knew well and loved because my ex and the neighbor were throwing oranges at each other and the neighbor grabbed me to use as a shield. He was just joking but the dog wasn't. Say goodbye to that pair of jeans that his behind was hanging out of. lol

    Ugh! I had a dog like that! He would roll around in anything stinky and was quite pleased with himself.

    Jneen I/m so terribly sorry. Candy was beautiful. Poor little girl went through so much in her too short life. I'm so glad she had you in her final years. After we lost Maggie in July, I couldn't even look at the posts for a few days - it just hurt too much. I still miss her so much, but it does get a little easier. Even though you have other dogs, they just don't fill the hole in your heart. Hugs - Connie

    Thanks Connie. I told Lexi about Candy when she asked about her. They were with me over the weekend. She climbed up in my lap (she's 6) and said "I'm going to miss her" In the next breath she said "Can we get another doggie?" no. She talked a few more minutes then "Can we please get another puppy?" no. She sat a few more seconds just rambling then she looked up at me with those big blue eyes and said "Grandma, can we please go shopping tomorrow and get another puppy?" I told her we'd have to wait until Grandma wasn't missing Candy quite so much.

    She was beautiful!!! It can be so hard to look and back and remember our lost ones, but at the same time, how lovely that we were allowed to share our lives with them and have such wonderful memories.

    Such a lovely girl grouphug.gif
