It's Monday and it's been quite a day. My biggest accomplishment for the day was giving Petra a bath as she was overdue. Boxers only need bathing once a month but it had been at least a month and a half... she was getting a little stinky. I've always been impressed that she never has that wet dog smell, unfortunately that does not mean she never smells! Here is a little video of her after her bath. I wish you could smell her, she smells so good when she is clean. After her bath she always tries to find "the other puppy" in the mirror and gets all sad and anxious because she can't go play. The second part of the video is just Petra being silly while chewing on her rawhide bone.
At one point, you can hear that her breathing is all funny because she licked a bunch of soap during her bath and her mouth and nose got all frothy. It sounded pretty funny! No matter how much I rinsed, she still sounded like that but it eventually went away.
In the video, it looks like she is scratching up the bathroom real good, but she actually steps pretty lightly and I haven't seen any scratches yet. I bathe her in the tub and yes, she shakes herself and water sprays all over no matter how well I dry her. I would like to assure you that the entire bathroom gets a thorough cleaning when she is done in there! :)
