Boys & A Dog

Do you remember me telling you about bathing Katie by myself - in my bathroom?
Today on this warm beautiful day, I had help from the boys.

Katie did not like it at all.

Dare ya buddy!

Much better!
Now she smells like watermelon. :)

Hi Stacey,

Gracious - I bet you were happy to have help with Katie's bath!
Thank you for sharing "Flaunt Your Reds". Your red banner makes me happy every time I visit - your red geraniums are just waiting to be painted.
Have a wonderful week.

What did Katie do after the most dogs I bet she rolled in the grass. This way is much easier than the bathtub routine though.

Heidi Ann said...

HI Stacey, This post looks like us with our dogs!!! :)...I wanted to get back to you about my newsletter...I would love to add you to my list!...Would you just e-mail me your e-mail mail address? I am sending the first one out on Wednesday morning! Please let me know what you think!!...Thank you so much for your interest!..Your friend, Heidi XO

HAA HAAAAAA...yes, I DO remember that bath in your bathroom! That was so funny..this time, it looks and sounds much smoother!!
Happy day..

Brenda said...

Does those boys good to work for their mama. Keeps them in line. I don't know how I'd bathe a big dog like that. I just take mine into the shower with me.

Just a little something from Judy said...

Seems like the perfect Memorial Day event. Bet every dog wishes they would smell like watermelon.

LOL! Katie is adorable even when she is unhappy about having a bath.

p.s. I got my wine barrel lid lazy susan at a small local gourmet wine shop in my town...

Darlene said...

LOL...I do remember your bathing her in the bathroom post!! I bet it was much easier with them bathing her outside. We did have some GORGEOUS weather didn't we!?!?

Sonia said...

Such a cute post....nothing better than a clean dog...especially if you didn't have to bathe her yourself. Nice of your boys to help you and Katie is so cute! It was a beautiful Memorial Day today! I got some more gardening done and we grilled and chilled....have a great week Stacey...I will post for Flaunt your to ya later. Miss Bloomers/Sonia

Happy @ Home said...

How could we forget the story of you bathing Katie in your bathroom. That was so funny!! It looks like things went smoother this time and a dog smelling like watermelon is definitely a good thing.

Cass @ That Old House said...

Anytime I've bathed a dog outside, he's immediately found loose dirt to roll in! Instant MUD DOG. I keep them in the house till they are dry, lol. You are a brave woman.

Katie must smell delicious. Our Dion hates a bath, when he ends up smelling like coconut. When that shampoo bottle comes out, he's OFF and hiding.

What great helpers you have for bathing Katie. You could rent them out!


Domestic Designer said...

Oh my dog hates baths! I usually get more of a bath than she does. Cute post!

Sit A Spell said...

That reminds me to call the groomer tomorrow. Our Golden, Darby is in dire need of a spring time trim and pedicure : )

Marilyn said...

I know Katie loved it when it was over. LOL It was so nice out yesterday. By the way, she sure is good to stand there and let them bathe her. Sweet dog. Hope you have a great day today.

An Accomplished Woman said...

Love your boy helping to bath the dog. It is easier for me to wrestle the dog than my son to help with the baths.



Nancy said...

How sweet, Stacey! Our dogs need the same thing and they hate it! There is not an easy way to do it either!

Things are busy here...I will be doing one more post before we leave and I will tell everyone about Fridays Flaunt! I really appreciate you doing this!!!
It will just be a simple post about me being away for a week or so...I will try to have something RED ready for Friday.

Hope you have a great week! Have fun Flaunting! Nancy

Simply Dandy said...

Oh Katie looks so sad....but clean:)


April said...

Awww...Katie is a cutie pie! Our Bella doesn't like baths, either! About scratches me half to death everytime!

the pleasures of homemaking said...

Awww! Our Maxie doesn't like getting baths either but he LOVES being blow dryed! Katie is adorable!


Empty Nest Full Life said...

Wecould never attempt our Nick inside, and he has got to have a complete shave down for the summer. She looks so sweet. Jackie

Nola @ the Alamo said...

Poor Katie did not look one bit happy. If the pooches only knew how much we loved them when they were clean! I can't imagine bathing a dog that size; little Chili wears me out and he's only 15 lbs!

Cathy said...

Too cute!!! We gave up trying to bathe our little Cooper!!! I can't imagine bathing a big dog!!! Ya'll are brave!!!

Have a great day!!!

Your boys are darling!!!

Becky said...

There is nothing like a watermelon smelling dog. Much better! Aren't labs sweet.

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Stacey,

Katie is so sweet.
I used to bath Heidi, our Giant Schnauzer in the bath and it is hard work.
Glad that you got some help from the boys.
Don't they just smell and look so good after a bath.

Katie doesn't look one bit happy about her bath but I know she felt (and smelled) better after she dried.

Looks like Tanner and Spencer might find a part-time summer job as groomers. I don't know though, Spencer looks pretty vicious with that water hose. Ha Ha

Watermellon shampoo-that sounds pretty good to me.

Give Katie a hug from me!

Love to all,
Mama Linda

Shelia said...

Bless her heart! I'll bet she smells good!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Angie said...

I need to so the same thing with my dogs because they are not smelling watermelonish right now! She is so cute!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

She looks so pitiful, but I bet she feels and smells better now! laurie

Lee Laurie said...

Thanks for stopping by and leaving the sweet comments. I'm planning on making the smaller shed my craft shed/workshop. It is gonna be like a get-away for me. Like a man has his 'man-cave'. LOL This will be my southern lady cave. lol I'm excited! I have to empty it out first into the bigger shed! I laughed when you said that about being part guestroom! My son wanted me to make him a "Rock band studio" in part of it.

One of my favorite stories of yours was you bathing the dog in the shower! Bathing them outdoors is so much easier and having help is the best! Twyla

Claudia @DipityRoad said...

TTFN~~ Claudia

Blondie's Journal said...

It's that wonderful time of year when our beloved pets really start to...well, stink!! And people look around your house with that LOOK like "What smells?" ;-)

I woke up one morning and Milo had something brown all along his side. The worse part was he had not been out since the night before and he slept with us!!

Have a great week, Stacey!!


Ms. Tee said...

How funny! She doesn't look very happy at all. Watermelon sounds great - way better than "wet dog" smell, right?! :)

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

HA, what a sweet dog.

And I love the name of your blog, Poofing the Pillows...adorable!
