Puppies First Bath

People are finding it hard to believe Frick & Frack are puppies. It has something to do with them already being over 80 pounds. But their behavior...pure puppy!

After we picked them up from the transport, they needed a bath in the worst way. There had been a half dozen puppies on the transport, so while most of the dogs were potty trained... they all wound up smelling like the puppies. Stink-a-roo!

Jeff and the boys changed into their swim trunks and took the dogs to the front yard. Frack went first, because he was closer when Jeff made a grab for him. He'd been so accustomed to bathing Rogue -who had a get-this-oevr-with-quick temperment about bathtime - he'd forgotten that you have to wash a dog's head last. They'll be as calm as they can until you spray water on their face!

So, though I wasn't dressed for the occasion, I comforted Frack while they scrubbed him down. The Hyppster's had stopped by to visit the pups, so got in on the action. Which included Miss Tina snapping pictures of us when she wasn't laughing.

Frick was much more understanding about it...probably because he'd seen his brother do it and we'd figured out some of the how-to's.

Not sure they're looking forward to doing it again!
