Since I was taking them by myself, I had to make two trips. Hubby would have helped me, but he was conveniently playing golf this afternoon. Funny how that worked out. Rocky went first and he was a total joy. No whimpering. No trying to get out of the tub. No shaking. Walked quietly by my side. Sat politely while we were getting stuff ready and then again after we were done and I had to pay. The only problem was getting him in and out of the tub. But other than that he was as good as gold.
Luci, however, was the complete opposite. She knew where we were the minute I turned on to the road to the place. She started wagging her tail and shook the entire car. Pulled me up to the door, had to visit everyone (human and canine) in the place. Did a belly flop when she got in the tub, tried to lap up the water in the tub, then drank water out of the sprayer when I was rinsing her off. Oh and she shook every 5 minutes. I came home soaked. Considering it was about 90 degrees today, that wasn’t so bad. She certainly lives up to the Labrador Retriever Reputation.
Luci and Rocky don’t like to be away from each other too much so it was a very happy reunion when I finally got back home with Luci. You’d think they hadn’t seen each other for days.
This is how they spent the rest of the afternoon.
Tired, clean, sweet smelling dogs. Yes, life is good!
