We've been down this road before - and blogged about the process. It was pretty much the same deal this time only Cam and I are in full coat-blowing mode right now so our double-coats are SUPER thick and fluff is coming out like crazy! Mom should have taken photos of everything flying around during the dry cycle! She didn't have pockets for the iPhone, though, so no pix from there. Think "snow storm" only it's fur. Think "blizzard" only fur. Think ... fur-nado!
Anyway, due to the extra-thick coat issue, Mom didn't get us fully dry. She decided we should go relax out on the sunny deck when we got home to finish drying. She had visions of toweling us off a bit, doing some brushing, more towel action ... but Cam and I had other ideas!
|"Hey, let's play instead!"
"OK! Let's run down to the landing. Race you!"
"Ha! Can't catch me, Mags!"
It was great! And Mom figured as long as we were running around, the fur was continuing to fly off and we were getting drier. And she was happy to sit in the sun and dry off, too. Oh. Did I mention she got soaking wet at the Dog Wash? And that our loose fur stuck all over her? Isn't that a cryin' shame? Yeah. I thought so, too.
Anyway, then we started wrestling down on the landing. It was great fun.
|"Gonna getcha, Cam!"
"Gonna get YOU, Mags!"
There isn't a whole lot of room for running around on the landing, so we started to take the party up onto the main deck and ...
"Catch me, Mom!!!"
I'm not sure why, but Mom wasn't crazy about Cammie jumping into her lap. Hey, if she didn't want to be part of the Crazed River Otter Games, she shouldn't have been sitting on the steps like that. Am I right? And why wouldn't she want a wet Siberian Husky on her lap?
Anyway ... we were ready for a break in action by that time, so we settled down onto the landing for a bit. There are great views down there - plus there's Mom's Cilantro plant if you get hungry. (... not that I've taken a nibble or two out of it. I prefer the parsley. Pretty sure Cam's the one who had a taste for Cilantro ...)
|"Hi, Mom. Isn't this fun?"
"I know nothing about the missing Cilantro leaves. Hey, can I sit in your lap?"
Mom did a bit more toweling and brushing on us, then we posed for a nice photo:

We really don't mind getting baths at all. We DO get a bit spun up afterwards, though! It was nice to get some of the energy used up out on the deck!
How about you all? Do you like baths? Hate 'em? Have you been to a dog wash?
