Poor Bailey has a bit of a compromised immune system from being shuffled around from home to shelter to new home, and has had a bit of a skin infection for the past few weeks.  His owners asked if I could give him his medicated bath twice a week since their groomer was ill.  I agreed of course (because I just love all of them) and it has been an adventure.  The first day I had to give the bath in the tub since it was too cold to do it outside.  I started out dry and on the floor and ended up just getting in there with him because I had no other way to get his whole body.  We were both soaked head to toe, the bathroom was covered in dog hair (as was I), but Bailey was a great sport.

Now that it is warmer, Terry and I have been bathing him out back with the hose.  This has been MUCH easier, however the point of the bath is to keep the medicated shampoo on for 15 min.  Although Bailey is quite cooperative, he now tried to avoid the bath at all costs.  Today he jumped up on the table like a billy goat.  Silly boy!
