I did his head first and was super gentle. No soap in his eyes.
He actually posed to have the water reach u underneath him.
I used one of those nylon scrubbers to make foam to spread the lather everywhere.
His tail was the most difficult. Short hair no problem soaping, it was the rinseing that almost foiled me.
But, I had an Ah Ha moment and stuck his tail into one of the quart jugs that had a fair amt of h2o in it. He wasn't real happy about that and kept trying to see what I was doing.
He finally stopped fussing when I started shaking the jug. That really helped loosen the soap. Once I pulled his tail out I was able to rinse his tail with more water straight on his tail... and hurrah! No soap!!!
I was amazed to find a few dead fleas on the scrubber. The nylon really picked them off.
Oh and Charlie had a few Fire ants and I guess I brushed on onto my thigh. Yeah, it bit me. Drat it! Lol.
Charlie loves to be dried and rubbed off. Before the bath I used a horse scraper and got all his loose hair off. Glad I kept all my ranch tools.
That kept all his loose hair off his towel. I use that on him when ever he sheds. The weather here can be 30s or below for a week then up to mid upper 80s. I'm surprised I don't shed myself.
All the supplies will arrive Friday I think.
Thanks again. Ya'all I appreciate your advice.
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
