WHO WASHED WHICH DOG?

By Wednesday, May 25, 2016 32 , Permalink 1

To groom or to get groomed -that is the question:

Whether ’tis nobler for the doodle mom to suffer

The water and blow-dryers of outrageous fortune

Or to save money in exchange for a seat of trouble….

One dood went to the groomer and one experienced a bath at the hands of “Doodle Mom” #scrubadubdoodle …

LOCER

TELL ME –

Who washed which dog?…

BLAME

Stop back on Friday for the “who and the why

It’s Wednesday – don’t give up – you’re almost there 🙂

    We call it water boarding not a nice bath like mom calls it

      Lily – you and Edward are a hot mess! I’m sure your mom is very gentle and loving when she bathes you! Don’t you want to stay clean and smell sweet?

    Well, this doodle mama just did full baths and brushing (attempts) for her two on Sunday. If your results look like mine then I am pretty sure I know who washed Jaxson! But I will wait with anticipation to see if I’ve been fooled, and you are much more talented than me! 🙂

      Hey Amanda – you did both of them? In one day? You’re my new SHERO! My back is still killing me!

    Harley looks whiter and fluffier – so I’m guessing he went to the groomer. No offense intended re: your grooming skills. 🙂

    I gave our beagle Cricket a bath last weekend – it is not her favorite thing and she is sure to let me know that! She is very dramatic about the whole thing – grunting and groaning the whole time, and then later shuddering over the horror of it all, trying to make me feel guilty! Which of course, I do.

      I don’t want to spoil it just yet Jan, but OMDoodle. I was so exhausted…. #ugh

    I’m going to lean out my car window and say Harley was at the spa as his furs look more like mine when I visit my spa lady.

      Oh Emma my love – where’s your confidence and support in your Doodle Mom Auntie? LOL

    Haha, I LOVE this post!! It’s so cute!!
    You both did a great job! It’s always a fuss to wash doggies!!

      It’s more than a fuss for me – it’s a comedy / reality show all rolled up into one!

    well since Harley looks like he always has, I’d say you tried Jax. I’ve been doing the grooming for years on Cole and I know for sure he’s calmer. He might just look great too. The problem since I own the scissors, I groom for days… snip here, oh that needs shortening… clip a nail…pluck an ear…he sees it like cesar… she has that lean and hungry look!

      There is no way I could trust myself with a pair of scissors on them. They’d look a hot mess afterwards LOL I do good just with the bath part.

    Wow! This is a tough one. They both look really clean. I think your grooming outfit is the best! 🙂

    YOU are MY shero lol. I attempted to wash Ziggy & it actually took 3 of us. One kept him busy in the front, Curtis controlled the water & I did the washing lol. I don’t think we’ll Ever do that again 🙂

      It’s a lot harder than it looks isn’t it friend?

    Oh I love this post! I’m the worst groomer – I’m intimidated by the tools and I think I’m going to cut someone’s ear off! These pics are FAB. I think the Dood on the right went to the groomer! Am I right?

      Girlfriend – I’m with you, I don’t dare use any sharp objects around them, I would sever an artery for sure… Stay tuned tomorrow (Friday) for the answer to the question of the week! LOL

    I just stick Mr. N in the tub and wash him. He gets blow dried in the winter/fall and mostly air dries in the summer. It definitely makes a difference lol.

    • Cathy Bennett
      May 26, 2016

      How I wish the one I bathed was Mr. N.’s size! LOL

    I also think the Dood on the right went to the groomer. It’s not easy to bathe a dog…especially not one whose as large as a Doodle. Looks like you performed a very good test here…The question is also, though, which Dood liked their bath better?

    • Cathy Bennett
      May 26, 2016

      HA! One thing I’ll share before Friday is “you’re absoDOODLEtutely right” dogs the size of Doodles is more than a handful (at least to me!) Can’t wait to meet you next month at BP!

    I don’t want to cast aspersions on your grooming abilities… but it sure looks like Harley just stepped out of the spa, so I’m going to guess you washed Jax.. 🙂

    Rita hadn’t had a bath in ages, but she had to have one Sat night after getting skunked! ugh.

      The Boys have to get bathed regularly because they are always on the couches and in my bed. I don’t mind them on the furniture but they’ve got to be clean. Harley actually looks “pissed” when he’s super dirty! Plus all that hair holds lot’s of funk LOL How did you rid Rita from the skunk smell?

  • Monika & Sam

    The good news is both are fluffy and very well loved. 🙂

      That they are – abundantly (loved that is!)
